I had other plans for this week but a nasty accident prevented me from doing what I had planned. I rarely cut myself with knives but when I do, I make sure it counts 😉 This time I didn’t exactly cum myself. I stabbed the palm of my right hand with my Mora classic No1. How the hell did I do that? Well, it slipped a little as I was trying to put it back in the sheath and my reflexes were faster than rational thought. Obviously. That’s what reflexes are for – to be fast. This time, however, it didn’t work very well, as I went for a falling knife. If that wasn’t enough, the butt of the knife got stuck in my jumper and the knife turned tip up as I was swatting it.
Long story short, I severed something in my right hand (most likely just a muscle) and ended up a bit crippled as I’m right handed. That left me useless with knives for some time and the only thing I could shoot this week was an overview of part of my Mora collection.
Here we have Mora 731 high carbon, 711, a single edged crooked knife, Mora 106, Classic No1, No2, The new Mora Robust Pro, Old Mora High Q Robust, Mora Flex Knife, Companion Stainless Black, Q 511 and Companion Serrated or diving knife, which BTW is in very High Vis orange.
Why do I have so many of those knives? First of all, they’e good. Not just for the price. Many, much more expensive knives don’t stand a chance agains Moras. Second, they are very inexpensive. I like that combination.
So here’s what Mora of Sweden have to say about their products and company.
“Mora of Sweden was formed in 2005 through the merger of Frosts Knivfabrik and KJ Eriksson. The name reflects the important link between our products, the town of Mora and its Swedish origin. A Morakniv (Mora knife) is always a knife from Mora of Sweden.The company is still family-owned and developes and manufactures knives which are delivered to all parts of the world.”
