The Swedish Fireknife from Mora includes a ‘Light My Fire’ fire starter. I love Mora knives, and always have. The high quality steel used in their blades is unequaled and the quality had made the company legendary among outdoor enthusiasts. Now they have the Fireknife which combines everything you love in their knives with a built in “Light My Fire” fire steel. Does it get any better?
Ask any outdoorsman, survivalist or professional and they will tell you that the Swedish Mora knife is far and away the leader in rugged, reliable and high quality knives, with blades made of the purest metals designed to hold the sharpest edge longer than any competitor. Pair that with the leading ‘Light My Fire’ fire starter and you have what is being hailed as the greatest single piece of survival equipment ever. Did I mention rugged? Could anything be worse than your knife snapping in half while in the filed, when you need it most? That is precisely why people love and trust this knife.
But there’s more… you would expect that such a knife would cost top dollar, but the Swedish Mora is under $30 at Amazon.
How can you possibly improve upon such a piece or work? By using paracord you can make your favorite knife even cooler. One of the most popular lanyard weaves for knives is the Cyclonic Flow, which is an easy knot to work. Here’s a page a FusionKnots on making this one, shown below.
But you can also use what is perhaps equally as popular for such lanyards, the Crown Sinnet.The problem I have with knife lanyards is that it can’t be so large as to interfere with actually using the knife, although I suppose that outside of the truest survival situations how much are we ‘really” using our survival knives? And in those cases we would probably be removing the lanyard to use the paracord, which is why we make these things to begin with. So in that case, I guess the Crown Sinnet makes a good choice because it provides so much more paracord to be used later.
The Crown Sinnet is simple to make and here’s a great YouTube video showing how to easily make it. The thing to note is that as you can see in my image here, its best to create a 2″ dongle off of the knife lanyard hole itself creating a simple loop, off which you then build the Crown Sinnet lanyard. If you start making the lanyard directly off of the knife handle it won’t have room to move around freely and will stick out from the knife in a not-s-good way.
The bottom line is that you will absolutely love this knife and it’ll be one you own (and use) for ever. Do yourself a favor, search high and low and see if you can find a world-class knife for under $30, and then see if you can find one which includes a world-class fire starter. You see what I mean, this is the greatest deal on survival knives that you’ll ever find. Over 80 Amazon reviewers have rated it and the knife enjoys a 4.7 out of 5 star rating, which is almost unheard of… its that good. Spruce it up with some paracord and people will look.
