I love my bushcraft black. Holds an edge for a long time, easy to sharpen, feels good to use, and I don't have to worry about ruining it since it's so cheap. Best budget knife on the market.

I held one yesterday at my local sporting good store, it felt very great in my largish hands. Right now I'm looking to replace my Bk7 with some thing lighter, that Mora definitely caught my eye. I am gonna need it order it online, cause I'm not spending 60 bucks at brick and mortar.

How much is coming off? Do you think it could easily be fixed with a epoxy of some sorts? Is the rubber coming off from use, or is it from the sheath rubbing it off?

not much so far, but it is definitely opening up, down to exposing plastic
>Do you think it could easily be fixed with a epoxy of some sorts?
i guess, so far it hasnt been a big problem and i have plenty of other knives
>Is the rubber coming off from use, or is it from the sheath rubbing it off?
definitely use and missuse. pic rel

but keep in mind ove had it pretty much since the survival first hit the market, and never babied it, so i am completely satisfied with the longevity and the performance, getting pine sap off the rubber is a pain in the ass though so watch out for that

Moras are a good budget user. I tend to go with puukkos. Similar to ops pic but with hand forged blade and wood/bone handle.
Main points are go for carbon steel over stainless. Stainless is very hard to sharpen. Carbon steel will hold an edge and re sharpen easily, you just have to clean and oil it religiously.
>>
>>2135005
It clearly says it's made in the US

the mora bushcraft is a good value blade for light to moderate tasks. i wouldnt want to try and chop down a 4 inch tree with it. opening packages, cutting food or cordage, striking a ferro rod, making shavings for a fire are all fine. i typically carry one as a backup to my main knife.

i typically carry a mora as a backup blade when i carry an axe. if its your only knife for camp stuff i'd want something beefier unless its a serious long hike and ounces count.

Made in China is basically mystery meat. You have no idea what type of steel is used and you can guarantee that they used pretty much every shortcut and money saving trick in the book. In my experience, made in USA is almost always noticeably better, if only because of the fact that it's so hard for manufacturers to stay afloat in the US that the ones that don't make noticeably better products don't last very long since they still cost a lot more.
>>
>>2134842
Had it, carbon steel sucks for outdoors. Sure it holds edge better but no amount of larping with patinas made it worth it. I now have a dedicated firesteel striker and even cheaper stainless companion. If mora makes something with same handle and stainless go for that.

>What's your thoughts on the Mora Bushcraft?
The Bushcraft was literally made for American larpers as a marketing ploy. The Kansbol (Mora 2000 successor) is the better knife by some distance and feels like a much more substantial (and by far more ergonomic knife) overall. This is the one you'll see every serious fisherman, hunter, guide etc carrying because the profile and ergonomics lends itself to so many uses.
>Garberg looks like Kansbol?
Also made for American larpers. The thicker blade and full tang adds nothing to the knife. Just adds weight and makes cutting performance worse.

Anyone who doesn't pick a SS for outdoors usage in 2021 is somewhat of a retard.

“Doesn’t feel as good in the hand” hard plastic give you the ability to change the handle shape brainletnig. And the half inch shorter it is, is a good thing. The shorter a blade is, the more control you have of the tip. If he is set on a thick knife, I think he should get a robust and save his money for that esee one day

>bait harder
Maybe I didn't need to add the Amerimutt line but it's not even close to bait, anon. The Bushcraft handle has the worst ergonomics of probably any mora knife aside from the wooden classic with a weird banana shape and finger groove that makes power cuts (where you put a lot of force into the knife) and detailed cuts (where you grip the knife close to the blade) uncomfortable. The materials used doesn't hold up very well to dirt and grime and gets downright disgusting if you get fish or game guts on it. It's also surprisingly slippery. The sheath is cheap and doesn't have a positive click.

The Kansbol in comparison has great ergonomics for any cutting task. The blade's profile makes it equally excellent for wood carving and gutting fish and is just plain sexy, probably the best looking More in hand by far. The handle looks slippery but it's actually got excellent grip with a rubbery outer texture and a plastic core from some type of nylon composite so feels harder and much more premium. The sheath has a positive click that firmly locks in the knife. The belt look is detachable (again, positive click) and made from some type of faux leather which also feels premium in hand.

I'm telling you, 100%, the Kanbol is the much, much better knife. It's literally Mora turning a corner and finding a sweetspot between price and quality. If the older designs felt like Moras this feels, in terms of quality, much more like a FRN Spyderco (but even a little bit better) at less than half the price. There is no other knife in Mora's assortment that even comes close.

>Anyone who doesn't pick a SS for outdoors usage in 2021 is somewhat of a retard.

>t. some guy who can't sharpen knives
Literally takes a couple of minutes to strop it back to razor sharp unless you've been an idiot and chipped the edge and have to "sharpen"/reprofile it by removing a ton of steel, or are doing your extremely rare reprofiling due to the secondary bevel becoming too blunted from extensive honing (both of which also takes minutes on on a sharpening jigg or wheel and can be done by absolute brainlets).

Don't blame the steel for your inability to understand the difference between honing and "sharpening"/reprofiling, retard. There isn't a single steel on the market that doesn't go back to razor sharp with a bit of honing.
>>
>>2136130
Looks like something I'd find from a kitchen drawer.
>>
>>2136366
You sound like someone who doesn't actually use your knives. You can strop or hone your blade for days but if the edge is dull it will remain dull. When you hand sharpen you are usually not reprofiling. You don't need to sharpen that often, but you do need to do it once in a while, and in those cases I'd much rather work with carbon steel and a scandi grind than SS and some weird hybrid grind where you actually do risk accidentally reprofiling due to the awkward shape.

It's just another moronic Reddit mutt using a rat tail or partial tail knife to baton through wood and another moron mutt interpreting the "data" with his tiny mutt brain.
>https://www.reddit.com/r/knifeclub/comments/gwsdbi/mora_kansbol_defective_or_one_off_case/

You actually can baton with rat tails. Just can't be a moron about it. You just baton it down as deep as picrel, remove it and drive a sharpened wooden wedge through the rest. If you don't carry an axe or a batoning knife, that is...
>>
>>2137152
The "problem" arises when mutts do picrel. The pound the knife down into the wood and hold the handle, beating on the tip of the knife, thus creating two levers and a pivot point that multiplies the force. Even though infinitely retarded, even this type of idiotic behavior will actually usually work unless you hit a knot. However, to mutts knots are just another obstacle you can pound your way through. And this will kill even skeletonized full tangs and thinner non-skeltonized full tangs, so to gap the amount of retardation in the abuse you need a really thick knife which kills cutting performance. Ideally it should also be a longer knife which makes it useless for almost anything you would use a knife for.

So just don't be a mutt. Bring an axe or use a wedge if you're gonna baton.
>>
>>2136554
>Ahhhh “chipped” see carbon knives don’t really do that. That’s a stainless problem
No it's not. They can chip, roll and dent; all which has to be corrected by a reprofiling (which is not like the other anon mistakenly though was the same as "changing the angle" but any type of "sharpening" where you either restore OR change the angle of the knife).

They are also highly prone to pitting, which is when corrosion eats up the carbon crystals on the very edge of the knife; simulating the process of micro-chipping which is what dulls the blade. This will make it so that a carbon knife can be razor sharp and dull in your backpack as if you've been cutting with it. Which is a problem if you use your knife in any type of setting where humidity can corrode a carbon steel.

It's not a problem if you're using your two inch thick "survival knife" to baton though. You can do that with any type of wedge shaped steel and it doesn't even have to be particularly sharp. Could probably get the job done with a sharp rock, desu.

>>
>>2136386
Its nickname in the Canadian military was "the steak knife."
>>
>>2137175
They kind of suck with modern standards, desu. Classic Moras were made as cheap disposable knives for the miners and foresters in the Dalarna province, so it's literally just a piece of steel inside a piece of wood, mass produced as cheaply as possible (with birch and fairly high quality steel, which are abundant resources in Sweden) to be beaten, abused, broken and discarded.

>>
>>2137193
The guard is bent, it's not to supposed to be like that.

And it's not a "Morakniv" Mora. It's a "Bröderna Jönsson" Mora which is a "Mora knife" in that it's made in Mora and features Sandvik steel and a birch but not the KJ Eriksson/Frosts which later became the Morakniv group via a series or mergers of the many knife makers in Mora. Bröderna Jönsson however continued to independently make traditional Mora knives until their factory burnt down (just a few month ago actually).

Thanks friend :) I'll have it on my radar.
Just generally liked wooden handles for aesthetic reasons but this looks quite nice.

It comes in orange g10 as well so you don’t lose it. If you want the knife to build character like wood would, Micarta is a safe bet though

What's wrong with a wooden handle?
>>
>>2137698
Changes in humidity and elevation will warp and shrink wood. It’s much more of an issue with wooden rifles. It also traps bacteria, but so does micarta

no, if you need serrations you want full serrations, a lanyard and a cork handle

If I still worked on a boat full time or was into parachuteing or rock climbing I would have serrations. I have no need for them
>>
>>2137802

>>
>>2137776
Serrations have their use cutting line and some oddly textured materials, but semi-serrations kind of half ass it. When your using a knife to do things like make wood strips for starting a fire, having only a partial length blade is a pain. Sharpening serrations is also a pain. It's much easier to work with either a full straight blade, or work with a full serrated blade//saw. It may not look as "survivalist" without serrations, but unless you have a specific need for them, your better off without them.
>>
>>2137846
So's a sharp fuckin' knife. If you take care of your shit, you don't need serrations.

But ... some people just like them. They're not for me; I prefer a plain edge. But if you do like them, then by all means get a serrated knife!
>>
>>2137776
IMO if you want serrations. Get them on the spine

No experience with it but on paper it looks kind of shit, desu.
>1/4" thick blade steel makes it better suited as a prybar than a knife.
>1095 steel will further add to the poor cutting performance via microscopic edge corrosion. They also tend to use really low hardness on 1095. Get used to sharpening it often.
>The handle ergonomics are bad. You'll be pressing down on a section that curves back into your thenar webspace (area between your thumb and index finger). And to make it worse they've also added jimping/notches there to ensure it'll properly dig into and bite your hand, coupled with a oddly deep finger guard area that'll make it uncomfortable to grip if you have mid to long fingers. And it looks like the spine protrudes from the handle scales, that aren't chamfered, so that's more hotspots. The back of the handle is curved down which is good for chopping but terrible for push cuts. So it's basically built like a chopping knife. Except it's a bad chopping knife compared to actual choppers like a Kukri. And it's downright poor for wood carving, fish gutting etc. It's essentially a prybar that you can chop decently with and kind of cut with. And your hand and fingers will be bent and shaped in all sorts of ways around sharp edges when you grip it.
>There's a non-functional choil on the blade that's added purely for "aesthetics". It's too small to be finger choil and it's not a sharpening choil because it's not attached to the edge. Ultimately all it does is prevent you from doing detailed work since the blade portion that's closest to the handle (and offers most control) is rendered useless.
>It has a cheap powder coating that will wear off as soon as you put it through some serious use.
Overall, I'd say it's your prototypical tacticool mutt-blade. Made for everything except cutting and holding.
>>
>>2138428
i think that choil is for a striker
yeah ill post it when she comes. I have an vintage mora for fine work, I literally wanted an indestructible prybar so that will be alright. I am wondering about the jimping too, worst case it will take some modding

>What's your thoughts on the Mora Bushcraft?
Overpriced larper bullshit.
Get any of the 10 buck moras, they work just as well. Only difference (other than the tacticool color scheme) is the square back, but you can grind that down yourself (if you need it - for most purposes, a rounded back is better than a square one).
Only more expensive Mora (or any knife, really) that's worth getting are the laminated moras. But only if you know how to handle knives, as they're thinner and thus easier to snap if you mess up. They can be ground much sharper though, and stay sharp longer too.

Or go chad mode and buy just the blade (mora sells them), stonewash or blacken it if you want to and make your own handle.
>>
>>2138576
well the best mora knives start at $30
>>
>>2137614
any knife can get that far down before getting stuck
>>
>>2134842
If I put some jimping on the back of my knife would that mess anything up? I was wondering if that was something that needs to be done before the heat treat or if it's okay. Would it be better to use a hand file or is my angle grinder okay?
>>
>>2138736
Is the US that expensive? Here, I can get a trilaminate for 20€.
https://www.ebay.de/itm/120483360435?hash=item1c0d5e2eb3:g:v-sAAOSwHr9gnOT9
And a regular one for half that, which is what I'd go with if I didn't already have two.
https://www.ebay.de/itm/160537442818?hash=item2560c6fa02:g:qvQAAOSwfC9XPebn

>>2139176
Just take care not to overheat it, and you're good. if the metal turns yellow or red, it's time to stop, and if it turns blue, you've fucked up.
>Would it be better to use a hand file or is my angle grinder okay?
That file would turn blunt quickly if the back is hardened. I'd use the angle grinder, and lots of water. Basically drip water over the part you're working on, grind for ~10s, put on water again.
Or set the grinder to ~1000 rpm if you've got a controllable one, then you can work without water.
>>
>>2139202
no. almost the same prices. but the knives that are cheaper than 30$ suck.
>>
>>2138576
The ten dollar moras kinda suck compared to the Bushcraft.
>>
>>2138576
The $10 ones are also shorter, thinner, and I believe they're all stainless steel. And not everyone has access to a power grinder. The Bushcraft is worth the extra money.

>Or go chad mode and buy just the blade (mora sells them), stonewash or blacken it if you want to and make your own handle.
I can guarantee that the handle you put on it won't be as durable as the original. Maybe a fun project, but there are no practical benefits to doing this.
>>
>>2139352
>I can guarantee that the handle you put on it won't be as durable as the original.
You can actually make more durable ones. People will take long strips of cloth and dip them in fibre glass resin and wrap it around the handle. It will easily stick on there more than the factory ones, micarata is pretty damn strong, especially if wrapped that way.
>>
>>2139368

i use bear teeth, grind them and mix them into a paste, then shape the handle with my ass cheeks

It's absolutely fine. Easy enough to keep sharp with the right stone, tough enough to do what a knife should do and comfy enough in the hand to use for a few hours at a time.

That seems like the norm with most threads of every thing. Guns, knives, cook sets, condoms.
>>
>>2139176
A dremel can do that pretty quick, but you're likely get a better result with a hand file, unless you're good with a dremel. Heat buildup won't be a problem if you do it carefully in stages and cool it with a wet rag, and a non issue using a file.

update on the shrade:
great balancing. Fairly sharp out of the box but its razor with some sharpening. You could seriously chop down a tree with this knife or pry open a door with it. Thankfully for my hand shape it is very comfortable, but I did spend a couple hours rounding off the top jimping. Went out today and chopped a 5 inch diameter tree down with it and it kept the edge fairly well ..

My only gripe is the small choil, but its very useful for the ferro rod, and it produces so many sparks i nearly set my amazon box on fire with the packing in it lmao

this knife is for construction and craft work. if you use our building and craft knives in contexts other than those intended, remember that most of them have this unpolished blade back – so it cannot be used with a fire starter.

Longer blade has more surface edge, I find because of that the blade usually takes longer to dull. Depending on what you're doing, a longer blade can process wood much better (Not talking about battoning)
>>
>>2140458
short blade = faster sharpening.

I carried a couple for about a year. Very capable tool. Melts in the hand, the pocket. It visibly prints but you can’t feel it. I think it’s around 2 ounces with the sheath on. I like knives between 2-3 inches but that’s just me. More control, less weight, quicker maintenance. Many reasons.if someone can win alone with a 2.5 leatherman blade then I can manage with 2-3 >>2135128

It's a scandi, doesn't take long time at all. You're gonna spend more time sharpening a short blade in the end cause you're gonna have to do it more often due to the edge getting so much use.

Charles was just in it for the money. He's a pseudo intellectual who got angry at Sam and Nick for getting the show canned, despite the fact the only reason the show existed in the first place was due to Sam, and his more righty leaning fan base. Without the fan base and without those Sam written skits, there would have never been a show in the first place. Charles acts like Sam got the show canned, but Charlie boy is actually angry his golden ticket was cancelled. He should be thankful to Sam for the small window of success Charles would have never had. Without Samuel Hoydelstein no one would have ever heard of Charles. There's a reason Nick and Sam are still buddies, because they knew and believed in their material/cause. Charles is just an actor who wanted to make it big by being another pseudo intellectual chaos agent. And it's apparent by his material after World Peace, it's all fever dream nonsense with no underlying message, because that's what he thought World Peace was and he's too dumb to understand it. He's a normie pretending not to be one. Autistic rant out.

You act like you know these people on a personal level. Go outside. Charles is a good man, no more or less mentally ill than Sam. They’re both obviously retarded
