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.

  Looks a fair knife, fairly sharp out of the box. As for the heavy duty claim, I found it a very light and looks like it may not stand up to serious abuse. The handle is decent but the sheath is already a little loose; time will tell. But all said, for the price and the service you got, I will do business with this company again.

  This is a great knife to use for getting into general whittling/carving and bushcraft skills. The handle is really comfortable and the knife is very easy to handle/use. It comes sharp from the factory and ready to use.

  A great knife for the money and does the job well and good to have around if you are on a wet camp especially with the plastic sheath and when you don’t want to use your best knife. You can abuse this one and just buy another one if you damage it at this price. I’m not too keen on the plastic sheath for general use so I have bought the leather one which is much better for everyday wear.

  Just a basic knife which seems adequate for general tasks.

  This knife arrived next day. Razor sharp and a great piece of high quality low cost equipment. The sheath hooks on to belt, rucksack webbing etc. This knife can be used in the kitchen for food preparation and/or carpentry, DIY etc and general outdoor use and can be worked very hard if required. I use a RM leather strop to keep the edge keen and would recommend this knife to anyone looking for a good GP blade.

  Not bad for the price. The blade doesn’t work with a Ferro rod. It’s leagues behind compared to my Buck Selkirk (£75). But you get what you pay for. Cheap everyday knife.

  Awesome knife, good for both splitting wood, and finer things like feather sticks.
