Morakniv Bushcraft Triflex passaround
« on: June 20, 2017, 08:27:10 PM »
I just got my hands on this discontinued Morakniv Bushcraft Triflex. As Triflex Moras are now longer available I figured Ill send this one on a little world tour to let you guys get a chance to play with this now exctinct beauty.

Triflex steel is a steel where the outer layer (0,1 mm) has had much of the carbon removed. As a result they can harden the core a lot while outside remain soft. This makes the steel able to take and hold a great edge and still be able to take beating without shattering. Mora used this steel in several models over 20 years until the steel manufacturer went bankrupt a few years ago. As a result, the Triflex Moras are now duscontinued.

The rules for the passaround:

1. You have to be willing to ship internationally.

2. When you get it you play with it for a few weeks, post some pics and a few words here, and then send it on to the next one on the list.  The last one send it back to me.

3. Use it. Dont baby it, but dont wilfully try to destroy it. Sharpen it if it is needed. If you dont feel competent enough at sharpening to do it, dont. Let the next guy do it.  It has a fairly short tang, so dont baton thick knotty logs with it.
Feel free to take it on an adventure or long hike or fishing and so on. ( and we love to see pics of it)

4. Clean it and oil it after use, it is not stainless steel.

5. Feel free to mod the sheath if you feel competent at that. But dont mod the knife beyond sharpening.

6. Enjoy it! :)

Put your name on the list below if you want to experience the triflex. Ill close the list after july 1.
Then Ill arrange the list so that the knife will travel the most sensible route.

I do have one request Gaute, if it is possible,  I would like to be the last one to test the Mora out. Like I said, if it is possible.

I actually have one, which I never use as I usually use my cheaper Moras/Martiinis as I consider this a posh model and worry about damaging it, for some reason... weird, I know...

Already Nate I've noticed it looks and feels very similar to the 746 I've got here,I'll compare it to a few Moras I've got  :salute:

Yeah shape is just like the BB  Nate  :tu: be interesting to compare the 746 though as a cheaper Mora compared to the Triflex and the BB, blade shape looks the same as the 746 and BB ,I'm sure it will perform well as not found a Mora that doesn't  :tu:
