- Diamond sharpening plate
- Durable synthetic sheath and handle
In short: We love the Mora Bushcraft Survival Knife. At first, the plastic feel was concerning, but the knife performed beautifully, and it’s clear that the material used is top grade, because we believe this is going to last for the rest of our lives. Great balance, and good feel in the hand. A very hearty ‘click’ when sheathing the blade.
The Mora Bushcraft Survival Knife is perfect for first time campers. It’s a few steps up from the economy blade, but it’s price is no where near some of the other knives out there.
The synthetic material used for the sheath is really high quality stuff. It’s not going to crack on you after years of use, and it’s pliable enough to withstand whatever you can throw at it (that’s throw, not shoot). We liked that it’s also perfect for wet conditions. It won’t soak up water like leather or nylon weave, and it’s easily cleaned.
The spine of the knife is perfectly flat creating 90° corners, which makes getting some good spark off the flint incredibly easy. When storing the flint, there’s a nice ‘click’ that lets you know that it’s not going to go anywhere.
The one thing that we didn’t like was the size of the diamond plate. It’ll do in a pinch, but we suggest using a whetting stone.
All in all, we really loved this knife. Great balance, and good smooth feel in the hand.
