    Mora was one of the first knives I ever got which was given to me as a gift, and I still use on most trips today. For the price I can't recommend a better knife. https://www.thebushcraftcave.com/pro...y/brands/mora/

    i have a very very similar shape knife.. we have always called them 'farmer's curve' knives.. brilliant shape for general tasks around the farm or camp, brilliant for pruning and small branch work also...

    Worth looking at the Hultafors heavy duty as well as the Mora. I've been using one for a couple of weeks now, and I have to say I'm very impressed, it is every bit as good as my Mora and in some respects a bit better.

    No contest:

    Unless you have to have green or black, rather than blue in the handle.

    Mind you, these used to be about 3.95 each only a couple of years ago.

    May have been priced then as a "loss leader" of course but I think people buying ten at a time and re-handling them etc then selling on, might have had something to do with the huge price hike.

    Regardless, these are pretty much standard, mass produced, (like all moras) Mora Clippers in stainless steel.


    I keep one in my fishing tackle box and another in my paddling kit and they're excellent.

    perfect for beginner and pro alike.

    I would second that, you can't really go wrong with Mora, honestly don't be fooled by the price they're good knives.

    Hi, I was issued with a pruning/cabling knife just like that 35 years ago at work, I still use it on a daily basis.

    Lost it for a while and was reunited when cleaning the inside of the car, I can't explain how much it meant to have it back in my pocket.

    You will need something like Humakt is offering as the folder will not be able to some bushcraft tasks
    Campfires are best shared with friends.

    Hi All,

    Great website with loads of excellent info - thanks.

    I shall be asking lots of questions in other threads, but couldn't resist showing off the website I have found whilst trying to find cheap bushcraft knives for the scouts: for instance, the heavy duty hultafors craftsmens knife is just 4.27! http://www.my-tool-shed.co.uk/p10936...duct_info.html the 'standard duty' ones are even cheaper.

    Hope that helps someone bag a bargain,

    Warren
