There has been tons of reviews on the Morakniv Companion and for the price point on this carbon steel fixed blade knife (Under $20) – you cannot go wrong.
The Morakniv Companion does come in stainless and carbon steel versions and we chose the carbon steel version. In the knife world carbon steel is preferred because carbon steel is easier to sharpen and is a sharper blade vs stainless.
The marketplace is full of more expensive and sometimes collected and coveted knives. If your looking for a quality inexpensive blade to do general camp kitchen or camp chores in a fixed blade knife – The Morakniv Companion will get the job done and more. Bottom line – just buy it.
We at VADV Adventures are always on the lookout for innovative, inexpensive and lightweight gear for MotoVloging, Backpacking, Motorcycle Camping or applications where the preferred form factor is small, packable and lightweight.
