Losing a tool is always a frustrating experience, and doubly so when it’s an essential item such as a knife. For those who spend a lot of time on the water, either for recreational fishing and boating or in a professional role, this means that tools must not be allowed to sink if they’re dropped overboard. You certainly don’t want to watch your knife disappear beneath the surface, never to be seen again.
Morakniv has developed a new fixed blade designed to solve this problem. The new Mora Floating Serrated Knife features a lightweight blade and buoyant cork handle that prevents it from sinking. The cork handle is also designed for comfort and a secure grip in the wet and cold conditions you’re likely to encounter on the water. Its prominent finger guard ensures your hand won’t slip forward onto the sharp edge while you work.
As you’d expect from its name, the Floating Serrated Knife has a 3.7-inch serrated stainless steel blade. This is tailored to quickly cut through rope, nylon, and fibrous materials, making it a valuable rescue tool for escaping entanglement. It also features a rounded tip to avoid accidental punctures.
This knife includes a belt sheath made of high-visibility orange polymer, a material which is also infused at the core of the handle. The bright coloration will help you spot the knife quickly if it ends up going for a swim.
Total weight of the Floating Serrated Knife is only 3.07 ounces. It will be available for purchase in October 2018 at an MSRP of $27. For more information, go to Moraknivusa.com.
