I appreciate the nice comments about my Mora Bushcraft review. Reader Aaroneous called it the “definitive review” and I thank him. I spent months testing it while guiding, and trying to come up with repeatable, quantifiable “lab” tests to demonstrate why I really love that knife. I am glad you all approve. That being said, we have probably jumped the shark on the Mora thing. I suppose one can actually get tired of a tough-as-nails, razor-sharp knife for less than the price of a pizza. It’s seems that we’ve made our point and it’s time to head in another direction for a while . . .
What I would like to ask you, our Edged Intelligentsia, is what would you say is the best inexpensive folding knife that you have come across? Is there a folder that you think might give a Mora blade a run for its money in the best value knife value on the planet category? Is there one you’d like to see put through a similar battery of tests, just because you want to see if it’s up to the challenge?
Let us know.
