Mora Eldris is a pocket-sized knife with a fixed blade that will amaze you with its versatility. The blade is short – just 2.2 in. (56 mm) long – giving you increased control with greater safety. Combine that with an ergonomic, comfortable handle and you have a knife that is perfect for 90% of backcountry tasks. It weighs a fraction of most fixed-blade knives, so it’s easy to bring with you no matter the size of your adventure. Carry it in your pack or pocket or wear it as a neck knife.

The blade is made of 12C27 Swedish stainless steel, heat treated according to the famous Morakniv recipe to hold extreme sharpness. It has a compound grind, a scandi grind at the heel for heavy-duty cuts and saber-type grind on the belly and tip for fine carving and food prep. It’s great for camp chores and making feather sticks, but obviously will not baton your kindling. And the square grind on the spine makes a perfect firesteel striker, throwing a shower of sparks.

For a small knife, the barrel-shaped handle is sized to fit comfortably in your hand for greater control. And you’re able to move your hand on the handle to get different kinds of grips. Made of two different polymers, the core is a stiff, rugged polypropylene, while the outer material is a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) for excellent grip. A cross-hatch pattern on the core provides a more tactile feel. And the rear of the handle has a lanyard hole.

A polymer sheath provides protection for the blade when not in use. It’s symmetrical, so there’s no need to think about which way to insert the blade; it’s ambidextrous. A click lock ensures the knife stays securely in the sheath, even when hanging upside down as a neck knife. A hole at the tip of the sheath allows for attachment of a paracord neck lanyard.

Morakniv has been making high-quality knives in Mora, Sweden since 1891. Eldris pays tribute to the lifestyle of the neighboring fäbod, a summer place where cattle roamed free in nature. Eldris is a flexible companion for all your daily tasks.

    Best Small Knife Ever!

    Posted by Ariadne on 24th Mar 2024

    I'm a woman which seems like a required thing to say about a tiny knife, and this is the first knife I've felt confident using out in the forest. Previous to this, I've owned a SAK Spirit X, the Silver Multitool, I've kept it in my purse, but getting into Bushcrafting, Trekking, and Expeditions it seemed prudent to get good at knife-skills. The Eldris has an optional button closure retention system, and feels great in the hand. I've used mine now to start several fires. My last trip I used this knife before gusts came to make stakes for guylines. It's adorable, highly recommended.
