Thread: Best cheap knife?

  1. #1

    Best cheap knife?

    Hi Guys!

    Looking for a decent cheap knife to take away with me next week. I can probably go up to about 15. Just need a multipurpose one for taking fruit off things, and for general camping jobs. Nothing too huge or heavy duty. Anyone got any good suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'll save everyone the bother and get in first before everyone else ends up saying the same thing:

    Get a Mora. Something like this:

    Mora 911 stainless if you are going to use it for food prep...

    Tell you what, Bigmac, PM me your name and address and, so long as you are in the UK or have a BFPO address, I'll send you a Mora Clipper (that I've re-handled with an antler handle) FREE - it's been sitting around and doing nothing and since they're so cheap it has no re-sale value. It's a carbon blade, in very good condition, and it has a leather sheath as well.

    You can have it.

    I won't be able to put it in the post until Wednesday.

    There's only a couple of conditions - you've got to look after it, you've got to use it, and you've got to help someone who needs help if you can.

    If you're OK with that then PM me your name and address and I'll stick it in the post to you.
