The Morakniv Companion Heavy Duty MG Knife is a powerful tool for bushcrafters, hunters and outdoorsmen alike. As with all Mora knives, it offers excellent build quality and ergonomics at a surprisingly low price.

With an almost identical build to that of the popular Mora Companion MG Knife, this Heavy Duty model benefits from a considerably thicker blade, measuring 3.2 mm in width. Made from carbon steel, this improvement brings the knife in line with more expensive models on the market, and results in a more robust knife that will withstand harder use.

This Heavy Duty version of the Companion Knife is an excellent knife to use whilst learning basic bushcraft techniques (being sturdy enough to withstand harsh treatment), while still being of a high enough quality to use once you are more proficient in knife work. Woodlore students attending our Fundamental Bushcraft courses will be issued with this knife, while it is also widely used by Woodlore's Instructors and Assistants.

The Companion Heavy Duty Knife features a half tang, moulded into an extra large ergonomic handle with a soft, high-friction grip; both the handle and sheath have been made in the distinctive Mora military green colour-scheme. The classic scandi grind carbon steel blade allows for easy sharpening, while the wider bevel angle of 27° gives extra strength for tasks such as batoning.

The sheath is made from tough plastic and will attach comfortably to most belt widths. It includes Mora's trusty thumb-push feature, which makes it easier to draw the knife with one hand. The internal Knife Retaining System inside the sheath has also been improved, resulting in a better fit between knife and sheath, making for added safety.

Overall, the Companion Heavy Duty MG Knife is a fantastically strong and well-designed tool for all-round outdoor and Bushcraft use, at a great price.

  Very great knife, brilliant blade and very sharp, great for all round use. I would highly recommend for beginners right through to the more experienced, the sheath is great also and never falls off and requires no belt.

  Arrived next day as described, have been using the knife in all weather conditions and grip is still good even when wet and the blade has a very sharp edge, sheath is very good and clips on to your trousers without a belt.would recommend to anyone doing camping or bushcraft, a great all-round knife.

  Brought two of these and tested one pretty much to destruction to know what I can really expect from it in the wilds. The blade has good balance and is fitted to an excellent non-slip handle - works well with wet hands. The plastic sheath gave excellent protection and fitted very securely to my belt. The thumb push takes a little getting used to but I’m sold on it now; I didn't experience any accidental releases. The blade holds its edge well even feathering wood. This will scuff the blade up but no big drop off in performance. It was razor sharp at tasks such as skinning and general food prep. Tried also leaving submerged in water overnight, fruit juices and weak acid on the blade with only minor tarnishing but no rust. They seem to have chosen the carbon level of the steel very well. As shipped, the blade spine will not strike a ferro rod. A few minutes work on a grinding stone sharpening up a one inch patch had sparks showering across the floor as usual. This is the perfect mate to a parang for jungle use and this will centrainly accompany my next expedition to Borneo. At that price, they also make excellent gifts for tribal chaps who help you along the way. Recommended.

  Really great bit of kit, especially for such a reasonable price. The knife fits firmly into the sheath so there is no risk of it slipping out, and the overall ergonomics mean that it is comfortable in the hand. I would definitely recommend this knife.

  An excellent knife, very comfortable, strong and sharp with a practical sheath. How they do it for the money is beyond me!

  A solid bit of kit, with a large comfortable handle, which is great when cold/wet etc. and the blade is very sturdy - worked well splitting small logs for kindling while camping in Canada. Great value as well. Carbon steel does seem to rust so it needs some TLC keeping clean and lightly oiled. But it has stayed sharp despite very hard use.

  I'm no expert but for the price it feels very solid, very sharp and I like the thick blade and Swedish steel.

  Good strong knife that I have used for cutting wood, carpet, rucksack straps, canvas, food etc, even though I only wanted it to cut the soft walls of the upper bed in my pop up camper van in case of fire. The rubberised and very useful sheath fits on a belt or hangs on a nail in the wall.
