Default Mora Robust: Great knife to have in the bag

Hey there,
I am a bit of a knife enthusiast and thought about a good fishing knife that everyone could use. (I have no affiliations or anything)

I recently received a Mora Robust knife from a friend. I had had my eye on it for a while and was pleased when he had one thrown into a order he placed. This is my second Mora, This model as its name says is a little heavier duty, thicker, wider blade and larger handle. Nice plastic sheath with many innovations, to attach to overall buttons, and clip on belt clip.

Every fishing bag or tackle pack is not complete without a good all purpose knife. The Swedish Mora has a long tradition around marine and other harsh environs. The steel is legendary and the handle is heavy bomb proof plastic.

They sell for anywhere between 12 to 17 bucks or there abouts. This model comes in carbon steel but they have many models available in a very good quality stainless steel. By far the best utility all purpose quality knife for the money on the market.

I spent/spend a lot of time on a bushcraft web sites. These knives are a household name over there. Sweden is known for their quality and knife steel. This utility knife is the result of many years of tradition and meeting the needs of fishermen, carpenters, outdoorsmen and craftsmen in Sweden. Not made in China. I cant say enough good things about them. Plus they are dirt cheap.

noreaster, Any knife enthusiast from the Maritimes needs to have one of these. The Russel belt knife is Canadian history.
This one came from the factory store in Pictou, NS many years ago

You are right they are great knives.

I keep one of those in the boat, it was a gift from a fellow who I took fishing last year. He is a knife type and through his trip with me he learned that I rely constantly on my blades. The knives are sturdy, very sharp, and an affordable value I believe.

A knife like that is a must for kayak fishing.

I have several Mora knives. One in each vehicles emergency bag, a couple in my camping gear, and others that I just use around the house.

I prefer the carbon blades.
