How to Sharpen Mora Knives

Here are two videos that clearly demonstrate how to sharpen Mora Bushcraft and Carving knives, or any other knife with a flat or Scandi ground edge.

A bit about the fine tools from Dewit.

Like many of the brands we carry, Dewit is an old company.  It was founded in Holland in 1898, and is still run by the 4th generation Dewit family.

Their tools have a combination of good design, excellent materials (high carbon forged steel, FSC certified ash handles) and an attention to detail in their manufacture that makes them effective, durable and beautiful.

Each tool carries a lifetime guarantee.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”70888″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
