Great quality all around knife for an affordable price! Keep one in your vehicle, in the kitchen, and definitely in your camping / hiking equipment.
Basic 511 is the most used of the Morakniv family. This knife has been appreciated and loved by professionals and hobby craftsmen for generations. In other words, it's a proper Mora knife.
The solid finger guard optimizes safety and the handle geometry makes the knife sit nice and steady in your hand. The blade is made of high quality carbon steel, and has a perfect balance between length and width, which gives a better experience when using the knife. Manufactured in Mora, Sweden according to their secret recipe, the carbon steel also makes the knife easier to re-sharpen so you can use it over and over again. However, keep in mind that carbon steel can be affected by moisture and corrosive environments so make it a habit to wipe you knife and oil the blade after usage.
