For batoning the knife needs great strength requirements: This Morakniv Heavy Duty MG features a thicker 3.2 mm carbon steel clip point blade with a 27° edge angle and scandi grind. The blunter edge angle gives for a maximum sharpness resistance. The handle features a a soft high friction grip.

This knife is the epitome of a hard use, no cares given backpack knife. Slice up some food? Cut some rope? It'll do whatever and not slow you down. And, when it finally breaks there's always Mora them you can buy...
I bought this knife for a camping trip. This knife was very sharp out of the sheath. I used it to cut small twigs, rope and even used it to trim a brisket. The knife was slicing that brisket like a hot knife through butter. Highly recommend this knife for outdoor use.
This thing whittles like nobody's business!
...and I ended up breaking the tip off of it, but just the tip... I got this (3 of them actually; kept 1 for me and gave the others to family) and wanted to see what all the hype was about. At first I babied and took care of it until I bout bigger/ nicer/ more expensive knives and I thought, "well, let's see what it can really do..." and I was not disappointed! It became my work-in-the-yard-toolbox-knife, and I used it to pry/cut anything that needed doing. I hammered on it and batoned it too, and the 3/4 tang just plain held up fine. I've resharpened it dozens of times, and re-profiled the tip after it broke off, which was very easy to do with files. In the end, I could break it really, if I just flat out decided to do so, but after some very hard use, with no regard for this poor knife's well-being, it just would not break. If you need an absolute perfect entry level bushcraft, high carbon steel knife, this is it.
It seems to be a well made woods craft knife...
Great for light camp chores and is the best outdoor performer for the price you pay.
This is hands-down my favorite bushcrafting knife, when paired with one of the Schrade Frontier series blades, there's no task they can't handle
I must say as long as I've been into knives I've never liked the look of Mora knives. They always looked like something IKEA would sell in their kitchen department. After seeing lots of great reviews I bought the HD Companion model from BHQ and eventually fell in love with it. The best fixed blade money can buy. Handle still looks a bit goofy to me but it is very grippy. The finish work on the knife I got is unbelievable for any knife in this price range. The edge is razor sharp and the knife is well balanced. Get 2 or 3 of these knives and stow them in different places. Great inexpensive product.
Well let me just say I do t have an axe, so last time I went camping, this bad boy cut through four trees (4-6 inches diameter) and it still slid through my onions for dinner. I did a forced mustard patina on it, and even if I hadn’t done so well, it’s twenty bucks, not something to cry about. The handle is perfect balance of soft and sturdy and I never have any hot spots using it. Two things I might change: the spine is rounded, meaning that it’s impossible to strike a ferro rod with it, and the sheath is depressing. A knife so pretty deserves a sheath just as nice. I’m making myself one currently.
