If you spend some time surfing the knife forums and enthusiast blogs as I do, you’ll eventually notice that Mora knives are trusted and popular among guys who collect and carry $200 knives. If you’ve never heard of Mora knives before (as I had not) you’ll wonder how many Krona you’ll have to part with to take home such no-frills quality. The answer: not many at all . . .
Mora knives seem to be a diamond in the rough among utility knives: sturdy, sharp and cheaper than a bottle of cheap Australian Shiraz. You won’t find G10 handles or supersteel blades on these workaday knives, but even jaded knife enthusiasts sing their (modest) praises as the only $10 knife they’d ever trust their lives to.
At just $10 to $15 each, I’m going to order a couple of them. I’ll test one myself, and I’ll send another to a lucky reader for a guest review. If you don’t already own a Mora, write a comment below for your chance to win.
