Thread: Best Budget Carbon-steel edged Bushcraft Knife?

  1. #1

    Question Best Budget Carbon-steel edged Bushcraft Knife?

    Hey Guys,

    Quick inquiry into the best budget CS-blade Knife for between 10/20..?

    I already own the Mora Clipper 840 so any other, more heavy duty, knife recommendations would be great.


    The 10/20 limit is just a preferred guideline any other suggestions are very welcome !!

    Cheers!

    Just a suggestion, why not have a blade made to your own design by one of the many gifted makers on the forum, and then fit your own scales etc... You'll then get a bespoke knife, and as I have found, I got a great sense of satisfaction when it was finished. I now have a very special knife, and to me it's worth every penny...it took me ages to take the plunge, but I'm so glad I did, you can see some pics of said knife on the forum in various stages of construction, "New knives rolling out of the SB Stables" would put a link on, but the kids are out and I really am a thicko when it comes to this kind of stuff.... Cheers Ian...

    Got them on a pass around on British blades,also bought the nessmuk version myself and was shocked how bad they were.. Blade was so badly ground it was laughable., supposedly a zero Scandi but it was all over the show and actually very convex and a nightmare to sharpen freehand..It was nothing more then a lump of badly made steel with a poorly ground bevel scraped onto it.
    Handle was rough and uncomfortable and the knife was incredibly unbalanced, probably the worst production knife I have ever seen..but don't take my word for it, check out the pass around on BB and see for yourself, the only thing I can say to anyone who seriously considers that this a sensible tool is HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

    A Lapp Puukko would be a good knife to go for as a step up from a Mora, but it will cos ye a bit more.

    You base it on another model knife than the knife suggested. The Condor Bushlore 2011 has seen a lot of positive responses. The post 2011 Bushlore however was horrible, with a ricasso that was an inch long...
    Well, well, I shall not pursue this. I have never seen a condor knife in my life. And you have.

    If you have a local toolstation, a glaziers hacking knife..... 7.odd, nice and thick, plenty of blade, and sharp as....

    I also have a mora clipper, but want to keep the edge good for other jobs, hence the hacking knife....
