Detailed description

This model was made with reference to the large old folding knives for hunting made in Thiers in the 1950s and 60s. Because of their large proportions, they ended up being replaced by knives in more conventional sizes. Nonetheless, these models have a certain charm and they will attract fans of beautiful blades.

Ideal indoors and outdoors
A table companion, a knife ready to carve a rib of beef, this XL Morta knife will also be indispensable in your (large) pockets for hikes, picnics, hunting or fishing trips, camping or other outdoor activities. With its generous proportions it will not leave you indifferent.

Plain Morta handle or optionally embellished with three mammoth ivory inlays. This way you get the unusual combination of two fossils in one knife handle. 10,000 years for the ivory and 5,000 years for the Morta. Its blade in Sandvik steel (14c28n) ensures an excellent cutting edge. With 59 HRC hardness, this steel has very good corrosion resistance while being easy to sharpen.

The Solid Morta knife is also available in Mini or Classic version. The 3 models of this knife are shown side by side in our photo.

Care instructions
Like all knives made with natural materials (wood, horn, etc.), avoid the handle coming into contact with water. The frequent contact between your knife and the palm of your hand will give it an authentic patina that will make your Morta unique.

Any questions?

Can we visit the workshop ?

Yes. We gladly welcome you from Monday through Saturday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. in September to June and to 7 p.m. in July and August.
You will discover our unfiltered work environment: noise, dust and good spirits. Nothing is staged or orchestrated. One of us will give you a presentation of the material, the extraction techniques and the different product models here.

What are the differences between the steels ?

  • The stainless steel is cut in Thiers at one of our partners. It is a steel (Sandvik 14c28n) of very good quality with a remarkable cutting edge and a tried and tested cutting ability.
  • As-forged steel (the famous carbon steel 90mcv8) is hand-forged. It is an excellent steel that has a good track record. As it is a carbon filled steel, the blade will acquire a patina over time. If it is not cleaned after use on food for instance, it will rust on the surface. These blades are often intended for people who like steels that bear the marks of time and usage and require a minimum of care.
  • The Damascus blades are made from two different steels, RWL34 and PMC27. These steels are obtained by spring steel metallurgy, which after the revelation process produces random patterns for the nicest effect. This Damascus steel cuts well and the blades are stainless. No particular precaution is required.

How do i look after my Morta knife ?

With a bit of common sense and lots of love 😉
Avoid submerging your knife. For added safety, simply avoid the handle coming into contact with water, because like wood or horn, Morta is a natural material that does not like water.
You can rub a little beeswax over the handle to brighten up its colour subtleties. Place a drop of oil in the mechanism if necessary. But generally speaking, normal use requires nothing in particular in terms of care.

How do i sharpen my Morta knife ?

Ideally you should use a sharpening stone, but you can also use a whetstone or any other technique with which you are familiar. To help you, we recorded a short demonstration video on sharpening.


In all likelihood this is a Morta knife as forged. As stated above in our care instructions, the blade is not in stainless steel. It is actually a carbon steel forged by traditional methods, so the blade will acquire a patina over time. If it is not cleaned after use on food for instance, it will rust on the surface.
To remove the excess oxidization, you can clean the marks with a bit of 000 steel wool and some toothpaste. Your blade will quickly look as new again, with fresh breath too! 😉
However, after further use, the blade will once again take on a brown colour to nicest effect that will develop as you continue using your Morta.
