Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Material, Blade Sharpness
It is strange that Moraknivs are not simply everywhere, given the price and quality of their products. This HighQ knife exemplifies what makes Moras one of the best deals in the outdoor knife industry. Everything about this knife is pure business. The sheath is one piece of molded plastic, but shows a lot of thought behind it, such as a drainage hole on the very bottom, a belt clip that holds securely yet is very easy to attach, and a Combo-sheath pin that allows attachment of a second Mora knife. It also holds the knife more securely than the sheaths of knives twice and three times the price. It isn't fancy, but works well in all aspects. The blade itself is Skandi-ground to a fine and sturdy edge, giving excellent cutting power to strong and thick carbon steel. Although not full-tang, this knife sports a heavy-duty molded handle that is practically indestructible, and holds the blade tang in a vice-grip. I have submitted it to a range of tortures, from prying to hammering to smacking with a baton, and haven't seen even the slightest blade play develop. This is a bushcrafter's knife with no special elaboration, but like its brothers, it is strong enough to last through a lifetime of use and cheap enough to lose and replace a dozen times over. With knives, you generally get what you pay for, but here you get value far exceeding the price.
