Swedish Fire Knife at home anywhere...

Reviewed by James from Boise, ID on Tuesday, October 22, 2013
This knife is equally at home in the woods as it is in the kitchen. The stainless steel Mora knife blade resists stains and rust to keep it looking great, and as is typical of Mora it holds an edge. The hot fire steel is fine, and typical of Light My Fire ferrocerium fire rods. The steel is held in place on the knife handle by a quarter turn, and is unlikely to accidentally become separated and/or fall out. The 1.5-inch long, quarter inch diameter ferrocerrum rod is great for emergency use and will likely start thousands of fires if given a test. The back of the blade (i.e. side opposite the edge) is square-shouldered and makes an outstanding scraper for the fire steel. The knife is NOT awkward to use with the steel removed.. The plastic sheath is rugged and holds the knife securely, promising years of field service. The only improvement I would make in the design would be to use a longer and larger diameter ferrocerium rod than the 1.5-inch long, .25-inch diameter rod.
