Scandinavian Outdoor Award (SOA) is a competition that has been held since 2005 to support product and design innovations from Scandinavia and to promote new memberproducts.

Scandinavian Outdoor Award has become an important award. The jury is composed of the most prestigious outdoor journalists in Europe and due to the fact that the products get tested in practice in an outdoor environment, the award has gained high respect and recognition among producers as well as the retailers. Award-winning best product must be based on functionality, quality, innovation, design and sustainability. The Overall Winner must offer the most complete performance in each specification. Main award categories for the SOA are overall and sustainability award and in addition, there are several sub-category awards such as apparel, footwear, kids, hardware and technology award.

Morakniv, the creator of quality Swedish knives since 1891, announced that its new floating serrated knife has claimed the prestigious Scandinavian Outdoor Award. The international jury nominated Morakniv’s floating serrated knife as the overall winner of Scandinavian Outdoor Award Spring / Summer 2019. The jury cited the floating serrated knife’s unmatched performance and overall design, adding that super light weight makes it not only “a great knife” for water sports enthusiasts, but for hikers in general. „The more we tested the Morakniv knife, the more we loved it.”

Considering the strong competition, such an overall victory is a great acknowledgment. Morakniv has added the floating serrated knife to its product lines. Its features make this knife an excellent tool for sailors, fishermen, paddlers and others spending time on the water, both professionals and amateurs.
