Morakniv’s newest addition is the Eldris LightDuty. This new version of the popular Eldris is dimensionally the same but removes a couple of features. It also has a lower price tag to match.
Here is a reliable knife for your everyday situations, a small but sharp helper to a wide range of tasks. Even though the blade is only 59 mm long and has a 2 mm thick blade, you can use Eldris LightDuty (S) in the garden, in your workshop, or even in the kitchen. Over and over again. Even though the blade is only 59 mm long and has a 2 mm thick blade, you can use Eldris LightDuty (S) in the garden, in your workshop, or even in the kitchen.
The blade is polished and made of high-quality Swedish stainless steel, and the barrel-shaped handle in polymer provides a secure and stable grip in each cut. Thanks to the material and geometry of the handle, optimal friction is created, which means that the knife always feels right in your hands. The stainless steel blade keeps sharp for a long time and is not affected by moisture or oxides making it perfect for both outdoor or indoor work. The knife can advantageously be supplemented with a belt loop. Eldris LightDuty (S) is a knife to count on, a tool for everyone. Eldris LightDuty (S) is a knife to count on, a tool for everyone.
New Eldris LightDuty (S) is available in the colours Mint Green, Dusty Blue & Dark Grey.
The marketing copy doesn’t really get into how the Eldris LightDuty differs from the original Eldris. There is one cosmetic difference in the available colors but there are two functional differences. The first functional difference is that the LightDuty has a standard Scandi grind, lacking the compound grind of the original Eldris. The second functional difference is that the LightDuty’s spine is not ground sharp for striking a fire steel.
The compound grind is hardly necessary and user’s have been grinding/filing their own sharp spines on Mora knives for years so I imagine this model will be quite popular with users who like the Eldris form but would like to save some cash.
