Thread: Mora carbon blade.

  1. #1

    Mora carbon blade.

    Just leave in a glass of distilled vinegar overnight to force a "Patina" on it (the blade turns black)
    No more rust, give an occasional dip now and then.

    Or rub a raw potato on it a few times. Soon gets the same and a lot easier to sharpen than Stainless.

    Had half an hour to spare so gave this a go with some Frenchie's mustard I have in the cupboard for hot-dogs.



    Turned out quite nicely I think.



    I've done my Opinel now too, thanks for the link

    Find the mora knives really good - have two for my bushcrafting (carbon steel) and a stainless fluro orange one for dressing game. Best thing to sharpen them at home I've found are the japanese waterstones (Buy Axminster Stone Pond with 3 Waterstones from Axminster, fast delivery for the UK) . Sharp as a razor, in the field I use fallkniven diamond/ceramic block things. I've also got an 8000 grit japanese waterstone for a nice mirror like finish.
