I got a mora wood carbing knife and i love it, yes very easy to sharpen.
After adding a few Scandi ground knives to my collection, I have really started to like them. Besides a couple of Mora knives, I also have a Condor Bushlore, that I really like. They are very easy to sharpen and do a great job at chopping and carving.
Bought a Morakniv Classic the other day. Its a nice basic knife for a reasonable price ($20)
Thank you! Is this a mini or a full size? I always enjoy seeing your knives!
Really looking forward to seeing that Chris .
working on a new Finnish Style Puukko. Scandi Grind Traditional shaped blade and handle "rat tail" tang riveted with a brass nut at the pommel. Mammoth Ivory for the Handle with a very Traditional shape. Will post pictures when I get it all finished.
As you said Michael, no better reason to be searching!
Thanks for the imfo Jan and John, something new (old) to search for.
WOW! Nice knives.
Michael-Pontus Holmberg started his factory in 1876-The company closed in the early 1960's-More history here-http://thebladeblog-ulf.blogspot.com/2011/09/pontus-holmberg-eskils...
As stated before, they were 1 0f the3 major knife Co's from 1900-1950. Although probably best known for the barrel knives, they also produced hunting knives & even kitchen knives.Most sell these days in the $100-200 range-- Here is one I found for $139 you might like, knowing your taste in knives-LOL
