Any Mora knife fans here?

Hello,

Over the years , I've bought some good knives from Benchmade, Tops, ESEE, KOA, OKC, etc.. No regrets. After reading the reviews on the Mora heavy duty Clipper Companion in carbon steel, I bought one. After using it on camping trips, I bought some more and handed them out as presents, some in stainless to my brothers to keep on their boats, carbon steel ones to my inlaws who are Camp hosts. Then I bought some more to keep in my truck, tackle box, BOB, etc. I know they wont meet every possible application but if you consider performance to price, I believe these are fantastic bargains. I'm going on a week long fishing trip next week and the Mora is the first knife on my list. Any other Mora fans here?

BTW I always regrind the edge to 20 degrees.

Definitely a big Mora fan here. Have a carbon steel Clipper on the bag in the van. They offer a heck of a lot of knife and are light. You can go with the "two is one" concept and not add much weight to your pack or bag.

I kept one of the Clippers in the kitchen, but eventually reclaimed it. Still have a red, plastic handled Mora in stainless there. I just have to sharpen it (and a lot of my other knives).

Moras are a lot tougher and more capable than some folks will tell you. Not fancy, just effective, and affordable.

Hard to beat for a < $20 knife.

Came across this old photo where I used a Mora Clipper with the rocking technique to cut through a branch pretty quick.

Mora are my go to knives for every day work.

The 3 incher is 60 years old and spent a couple summers lost in the bilge of my Dad's boat. The other was bought as a blade only, I added the DIY handle about 30 years ago.

They will definitely outlive me.

Moras are a great knife for the money.

Kind of like the Opinels which I also really like as a good serviceable knife that can not be beat for the money.
