Mora knives

I got a couple of Mora knives Thursday. I'd always heard they were simple and cheap with great blades. Swedish made. They have a lot of choices as to handle, blade, sheath, etc. so it took a while to decide. I settled on two Basic 546. Stainless Sandvik 12C27 blade, $ 12 apiece including shipping. I am impressed with them.



The reason this is in gun gear is that I looked for aftermarket sheaths, and found a place that makes Kydex for the 546, other knives, handguns, etc.. Looks like good work and prices, but up to 8 weeks delivery.

No one including Mora sells factory sheaths, and I've seen several knives outlast their sheath. I like the Mora design, but considering the Kydex.

The actual full name is Morakniv. There are a bunch of sellers on eBay selling all the different Morakniv knives at about the same prices. I got mine from a vendor named eCop!, just because he is 90 minutes down the road from me. I ordered them late Tuesday, and still got them Thursday.

Moras are confusing to decide on. They have carbon and stainless blades of different lengths, widths, and thicknesses; about six different handles, most are overmolded. The "classic" models have wood handles. Most of the sheaths are hard plastic, but a few aren't.

Here's a website that helped me sort them out:

Definitely the knife of choice for the Bush-craft people! You might find sheath options on their sites,

Personally I prefer leather even though Kydex is more resilient. I have a Ka-Bar Becker BK2 and an ESEE-4, both with Kydex sheaths and don't like either sheath but the leather sheaths I have been priced as much as the knife and they aren't cheap!

The Anza Knife website has a election of reasonably priced leather sheaths that work for other aplications as well.
