I agree you can't have enough of these knives around.

For the cost of one expensive other brand name knife you can get a fleet of Moras which will prolly serve you better and longer.
The 2 I have are carbon blades as well. I was thinkin fishermen may prefer stainless for its corrosion proofness.

I'm a knife freak. Always have been. I really like that Mora. I'm got to get a couple.
I usually carry an Opinel while fishing. Inexpensive and cool in carbon.

I agree the Opinels have a great reputation aswell. I like the plastic Mora for its weather proofness. Although the wooden handled Opinels prolly float eh?

I have read here a bit, but registered so I could reply to this. I consider myself a knife nerd, have a bunch of way too expensive knives, and especially collect Bark River knives, and some from custom makers. MORA knives are without a doubt, the best knives for the money on the planet. The "craftline ROBUST" model is one that I have bought multiples of. Its always available on that auction site, for $14.85 with free shipping. The only downside is the handle may bit a bit thick for those with smaller hands, its carbon steel and will rust, and it could be sharpened a bit better as delivered from the factory. But it is THE KNIFE to buy for any outdoorsmen on a beer budget.

Me too on the knife nerd thing. I dabble in knife making. I have made a few that turned out and a few that didn't. This one was fun putting together. You've prolly heard of Enzo blades from Finland? This is the trapper I handled and built a sheath for. The wood is local bird's eye maple. Great blades. How far does youur nerdiness extend? You have a Turley? Id love to get one of them someday.

Nice trapper & sheath!~ I am familiar with Enzo & Turley, but have owned neither. "Enzo & Turley", looks kinda funny together! Apples & oranges after all. I certainly appreciate Turleys knives, but we are talking GUN or nice ROD money there! lol. I guess I am a "bang for the buck" kinda guy, hence my appreciation of the Mora's. I will admit however to buying some of Eric Fehrman's knives (preowned), the most I have spent on any one knife was on Fehrmans. When it comes to custom makers I really like C3 (Cody) & Big Chris's knives, especially in cpm3v.

I checked out Fehrmans knives, really like the Peacmaker. Nice knife, and even nicer price.
