User reviews

Wonderful combinations of resources with knife, sharpener, fire starter. Well thought out including great double option of two belt holders. Also well designed is how well things lock in, knife in sheath, fire starter locks in, belt loops lock in. just no worries about losing items. Came very sharp, fits in hand nicely. The Scandinavian single bevel is new to me and I am not sure how to sharpen it. Some brief instructions would be good. It is all black (bad for dropping in the dark but good on ninja turtle stealth missions to cut pizza in the refrigerator), except the sharpener. Is it possible to make a black diamond sharpener? I still sharpen at home HQ and use the attached sharpener for emergency back up sharpening in the field. Means you can stay out for hours making tooth picks to impress friends and family without having to go home to sharpen!! Just a great impressive package but I would expect nothing less from Mora. I also have a couple carving knives which are awesome to work wood with. Really hold an edge and the shape is perfect.
Whether you're new to bushcraft or an experienced craftsmen, this Mora knife should find it's way into your tool bag at some point. Very affordable and it is really impressive out of the box. Cuts very well with the Scandinavian grind, batons well as a mini wedge, and easy to resharpen. Handle is sticky and feels full in the grip. You'll still want a full tang, with this being a companion blade, but there's no doubt this will be the knife you reach for first to do the work. Instead of cons, I'll list these as observations. The sheath is functional for adequate protection and has a drainage hole, but it's not on par with the knife. It's a carbon blade so it will gather rust even with the black coating, so clean and oil it after use...always maintain your tools. And, the rat tail may give you pause in more vigorous tasks, but the performance will outweigh your doubts. Pluses with this kit is a nice ferro rod, 2 belt options, and an emergency diamond sharpener. I'm sure you'll use this knife more than your hip blade, but consider it to be a tool and not a survival blade. Bushcraft is the correct name for this Mora.
