Sized for pocket carry, the Eldris fixed blade is proof that good things can come in small packages. Many would agree that the bulk of tasks encountered in the field, whether hiking, camping, hunting, or in everyday carry, don't require a large blade. The real strength of the Eldris knife is that, like a folding knife, it carries with relative ease. Choose from pocket carry, neck carry, or throw it in a small pocket or pouch on your pack – the Morakniv Eldris delivers best-friend qualities in an everyday carry knife. This model has a blue handle and a matching blue polymer sheath.

I bought this knife on a whim, I liked the looks of this knife. This knife found it's way into my fire kit. It is one of the best knives for shave sticks and processing kindling that i have! I recommend this knife.
The knife surprisingly didn't arrive shaving sharp, but required only a little stropping to bring it there. The blade geometry is great, the kansbol-style profile makes it an excellent slicer. The spine is a properly sharp 90°, and throws sparks well off a ferro rod. The sheath, unlike with the kansbol, works exactly how it was designed. The retention is tight. What little handle protrudes is rounded and smooth so there's no chance of it getting snagged on something and yanked out. The ambidextrous retention makes it extremely easy to use as a neck knife. As with the kansbol, there is no thumb ramp on the sheath, drawing the knife requires yanking it out rather than pushing the sheath away from the knife. As a neck knife, this isn't a problem. But for any type of pocket carry, it'd be awkward. For one thing, it means potentially gripping the blade while yanking it out. The kansbol/garberg hardware technically work with it as Dave Canterbury says, but awkwardly. As with the kansbol, the tapered shape makes it hard to withdraw the knife from the belt loop without just taking the whole thing out. And the locking strap does click into place, but there is a wide gap between the loop and the handle. As a neck knife: it's nicely rounded everywhere, so doesn't poke or jab your sternum even if holding something pressed against the chest. It's obviously quite a bit bulkier than an esee izula, so prints noticeably if that's an issue. Basically: the sheath works for the same exact reasons the kansbol's sheath is awkward.
I purchased this from another seller. This is a practical camping knife. Not super sharp. Great blue color. The sheath can be attached to handle to lengthen it. I like the "chunkiness" of the handle for a good grip. Too short for batoning. Can be used to cut food, bags, cord, and whittling. Good value for the price.
