Mora Knives

I kept hearing about them so a quick stop on Feebay and one has arrived. Kind of cool for $15.00 to the front door. Anyone dig them ? Any stories ?

I've used a friends for cleaning fish once.
Seems like a good knife for the price.
$ 15 is hard to beat, depending on model/type I'd buy one for that.
What model you get ?

Sorry, been away from this site for way too long.

I picked up a 860 MG and then a few weeks later another one, for the truck.

For the price, they can't be beat. Easy to find on Ebay.

Get a decent knife with decent steel and you will enjoy the edge. There is nothing wrong with Carbon steel, it is how it is heat treated that matters. Shon Rowen does the best on our DPx HEST Original.

I need a new EDC knife, I can buy two well regarded knives for $100 less than one Hest folder. They don't have all the bells and whistles but I will eventually end up loosing them over the years anyways .

I do have a original Hest fixed blade I use in the woods and my farm.

I had a Mora Knif that was given to me by my wife's grandmother (Mormor) who brought it for me from (yup) Mora, Sweden. I loved it, but it was stolen from my van when somebody broke into it years ago in central Mexico. I might have to go to Sweden some day just to get another one.

I recently purchased a Cold Steel Scimitar folder for EDC. I was not entirely sure what I'd get but I've been really happy with the quality so far. The knife arrived razor sharp and has held its edge well.

I'm thinking about buying some of their other products.

Do you guys have any experience with Cold Steel knives good or bad?

Cold Steel knives are generally very good.

Morakniv knives are awesome given the price/quality ratio.

I’ve mostly used the companion for bushcraft (in black, carbon, and stainless)
The Eldris (great neck knife)
And the #162 and #163 for wood carving.

It is odd, I started this post a few years back, I do not get in here much anymore but I ended up getting another Mora last week. I wanted one for the glovebox of the wife's car. For the price if it sits there and never gets used, oh yell but that one time I may need a knife in the car, it will be there.

Just got one for kitchen chores in my apartment in the Arctic. The heavy duty carbon version. Absolutely stellar performance.
