Davy gave me a great present during the week, the new Bushcraft knife from Hultafors. As Mora has been saturating the market with outdoor and bushcraft knives lately it was only a matter of time before Hultafors got in on the action too and their new Outdoor knife is superb.
They refer to it as the OK4
It's carbon steel at 59-60 RC, it's 8 1/2 inches long with a 3 3/4 inch blade which is 3mm thick
here you can see the really beefy blade, I'm sure comparisons will be made with this knife and the new version of the mora robust with the shorter fatter blade.
the handle is very comfortable in a number of grips and is plastic covered with a textured rubber.
it weighs in at 109.2 grams or about 3.84 ounces.
It's got an electrophoretic coating ( whatever that means !) on the blade to protect from rust but the bevel coating will wear once it's sharpened. The sheath is the standard plastic sheath but it comes also with a Cordura belt loop that will fit belts up to 80mm or about 3 inches, it also has a woven elastic ferro rod holder that will take rods up to 8mm diameter, although you DON'T get a rod with it you will need to add your own. the price is very competitive and I'm hopeful that Hultafors will develop new designs of outdoor knives and expand the range as Mora have done.
By the way ... A very happy and peaceful independence day to all our American freinds.
