Anyone here stumbled across Mora?

 

My nephew is a knife enthusiast and last weekend at Smoky Mountain KnifeWorks in TN he introduced me to Mora as something his scout-master likes for being high quality and surprisingly cheap.

 

Made in Mora, Sweden (even the plastic sheath is) it should be some good steel, has the 'Scandi grind' for easy honing.

 

Got this stout little bugger

Not sure how you get a quality knife made outside China for <$20 but it seems pretty nice.  Looking forward to using it for something.

Moraknives have been around forever and they are decent knives as I understand it but you need to know their limitations specifically they aren't full tanged so you will want to avoid doing anything like batoning with them.

Mora knives are like Ikea furniture. It isn't built to last, but, damn! Your $15 goes a long way when you purchase it. Also, Mora is more a style of knife. Yes, there is a Mora, Sweden where a lot of these knives are made, but it's many different companies utilizing many different methods of creating the knives of this style. Check Amazon for all the different models and companies making "Mora" knives. Honestly, they are so cheap but so useful that not having one in your backpack should be considered an outdoorsman faux pas.


Last wish? I wish... You had... More time.

I've never heard of them before, but for $15, I might just pick one up to try.

They make a wide range of knives I would say its similar to Gerber. Their $15 knives wont be as nice as their $80 Knives (which have a full tang among other things)

Actually, from what I found there were 2 large companies in Mora, that merged into Morakniv.  Not to say there's not others made in Mora, but there is a Morakniv brand.

 

I'm aware the one I got is (I think) 2/3 tang.  I have a couple full-tang Ka-Bars if I need that, but the Mora just seems so sweet for $15, and honestly just anything not made in China for $15 is impressive.  I also like having a Carbon blade option.

 

Also, I work for a Swedish parent company, so I like that side of it..

ITS used to sell branded mora knives a while ago. Maybe they'll relaunch it again in the future.

I picked one up as a truck knife to stow in the kit. $12 dollars at a local sporting goods store. My son-in-law swears by them.  Seems solid enough.
