just before the holidays I bought a Mora Triflex to take with me on a boat trip in the Bahamas that I did not want to risk taking my nicer knife on. I figured it was a good, cheap option that in case it falls in the ocean and is lost I wouldnt care too much about.
I got to use it on the trip but in very minor ways, and no bushcrafting or carving, other than cutting a fish for bait. Last night was the first time I actually sat down and spent some time putting it to the test.
Happy to say that I was incredibly impressed. Not only did it come razor sharp (which is augmented by the thinner blade than my other 4mm knives) but it seems to be very durable, strong and comfortable for long use.
I battoned wood, carved some pot hangers, used it with a firesteel, and carved some incredibly fine feather sticks. What was really amazing.......and somewhat frustrating........is that the rubber handle and its corresponding shape I actually found to be much more comfortable than any of my expensive knives.
For anyone looking to get a cheap but highly effective piece of bush kit, the Triflex will suit you well! The plastic sheath is also nice as you dont have to worry about upkeep. All in all a great package for only $20!
