  • What's been your experience with Mora Knives?

    F&S had a recent review of the Morakniv Garberg knife.
    http://www.fieldandstream.com/good-gear-morakniv-garberg-fixed-blade-knife

    That prompted me to look at our collection of Mora knives and reflect on their use. You can see our five in the attached photo. The orange handled one has a stainless steel blade. The others have high carbon steel blades.

    The two gray handled versions have thicker blades - one stays in my 'get home' backpack within the trunk of my car. The other stays in my workbench and is used for general cutting. PigHuntress keeps the red handled knife in the kitchen. The green handled knife usually stays in the 4x4. The orange handled knife stays in my hunting backpack. One morning I used it to field dress two feral pigs and one deer. It did a great job and held sharpness throughout the tasks.

    Do you own any Mora knives? If so, what models do you have and what's been your experiences with them? I'm especially interested in how you might have used them for outdoors activities.

    I don't have that many Mora knives, but like the ones I have. Of the three red handled models, two are in the kitchen and one is reserved for removing tissue from European mount deer skulls. The one I use most and like best is the 6" fillet knife---stainless, just the right amount of flexibility and I have cleaned hundreds of mackerel with it---holds an extremely sharp edge very well, which is important in trimming smaller fillets. I don't think you can find a better quality knife for the price.

      I've had the basic red-handled model for a few years now. I used it for one winter as my regular belt-knife when I was out hunting and just roaming around, but then relegated it to the pack. I still use it quite a bit, gutting animals and prepping camp food (and once I used it to dig out a plantar's wart that was bothering me ... sorry if that's too much info, but I'll tell you what, that nice sharp blade was just the thing for that job). For a primary knife on the belt, though, I like something a little sturdier.

        I don't have any MORA knives, just an old 9" CASE belt knife that's 45yr old with real stag grips & corbon steel blade.

          Treestand, I really like those older Case knives. Sounds like good one!

            LOL Matt! That may indeed be too much information! Haven't known anyone else doing minor outpatient surgery with a Mora :-)

                I have never tried one. I would like to try if they have one with a long enough blade.
