Morakniv®, creator of quality Swedish knives since 1891, is proud to announce the Garberg has been named the Best New Outdoor Fixed Blade Knife of 2016 in the KnifeNews Dealers’ Choice Awards.
The winners of the prestigious Dealers’ Choice Awards are determined by nearly two dozen of North America’s top knife dealers who vote in ten different categories. These dealers see hundreds of new knives throughout the year and receive constant feedback from customers who use them, giving them a comprehensive knowledge of the products.
The Morakniv Garberg received the most votes in the Outdoor Fixed Blade category, edging out new products from Bark River Knives, Spyderco and TOPS Knives. Dealers cited the Garberg’s full tang construction, calling it the “strongest and most durable [knife] that the company has ever produced.” Voters also applauded the Garberg’s premium 14C28N Sandvik steel blade, spine that’s compatible with a fire starter and the option of a multi-mount sheath or leather sheath.
“We’re both proud and grateful about the award,” says Morakniv CEO Henk Noback. “Even though we hoped for a warm welcome of Garberg, we never expected this fantastic response. It’s amazing to think about the fact that the knives we make here in Mora, Sweden are appreciated and acknowledged by users all over the world. This is a constant motivation for us to keep developing new and even better knives.”
