Tactical Fanboy Reports – Swedish FireKnife

We picked up a couple of the new Swedish FireKnife from Light My Fire at the recent Outdoor Retailer Summer Market. Although we’ve only been able to try them out a couple of times, we are impressed enough to share them with you. Having a fire starter built into the knife’s handle is a pretty handy feature for a 72-hour kit knife. Additionally, Mora has an excellent reputation for offering quality knives.

Light My Fire x Mora

The Light My Fire Swedish FireKnife is a product by Mora and Light My Fire. The blade is 3.9″ and made of Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel, with a Scandinavian grind. The handle is made of high-friction, TPE rubber, and houses a FireSteel Scout firestarter, which twist locks into the handle for convenient access, and can provide about 3000 strikes. This starter works when wet and at all altitudes, producing a 2,980°C (5,400°F) spark, which lights easily when struck by the flat end of the FireKnife blade. The sheath is made of polypropylene and has an included belt clip.

The blade handle and sheath comes in five colors: Black, Red, Orange, Blue, and Green.

    The only thing that could make this knife better is replaceable belt attachment piece, just like on their Bushcraft series knives. These knives have two variants: loop attachment and clip+button attachment. So, another consideration of “fire kinfe” is Mora Bushcraft Survival, that has this option, but firestarter holds on the sheath, not inside the handle.
    Great affordable pieces of equipment, anyway.

    Purchased one in blue awhile back as the first gift to my newborn son… though it’ll be a few years before he can put it to use…

    Seriously though, LMF has always been my favorite brand of firesteel, and the blade makes a great lightweight first knife for teaching knife safety and bushcraft skills to kids. Of course, now that I’ve played around with it I need to get one for myself.

    Great concept, but the ferro rod broke inside the handle on the first day of survival training during SERE C when batoning some kindling. I’d highly recommend removing it if you need to baton.
