Marginal performance in the field and nothing special.
- Small and light
- Feels cheap and not very strong
- Poor sheath
I'm a sucker for reviews and finally bought a Mora knife. I use a lot of knives and test them pretty hard. I have read and watched countless videos about Mora for over a decade now. This new Kansbol was supposedly the best bushcraft knife according to everyone rating these online at the time.
Well, after playing with this toy, I found it absolutely useless and drastically overpriced for what you get. I just don't get the Mora hype. Mora knives are really just cheap, weak knives designed for limited tasks that any solid folder or straight blade could perform just as well. I seriously think that people buy these trinket knives thinking they are the answer to a nonexistent outdoor problem.
After handling this thing you really can't take the build quality of these seriously. Sure, I could probably carve a spoon with it due to the scandi grind, but I couldn't do any serious hard work with it.Seriously ask yourself what you want out of a knife before you buy something like this.
I think anyone on the planet would be better served with the venerable Buck 110. That's a knife you can rely on day in day out. It costs about the same and I've found it does everything better than the Mora.
Don't like folders, then the essee candiru is your best bet. It is the toughest small straight blade you can buy that will run circles around every Mora made.
I used it a few times and was underwhelmed. Way better options for the price. Will never buy a Mora knife again, just not tough enough.
