    Mods, if I'm in the wrong spot I apologize. Still learning my way around the forums :)

    I'm looking for a fairly cheap Mora knife for just general use. I was thinking this Mora Craftline Pro S

    I know it's only $12, but I don't want to grab it without checking in with you all first, you guys have loads more experience in this area than me, so I'm trying to learn!

    I don't think you can go wrong with any mora you choose.

    I didn't like them at first because of the plastic handle and sheath, but after I bought a few of them and used them, they are my go to knife for most tasks. I have a companion HD, regular companion green and a robust. I like them all and I beat the snot out of them.

    My Mora Pro-S is razor sharp. It's the only SS Mora I own and one of my favorite. It's easy to keep sharp with just a strop. You won't be disappointed...

    I have the firestarter one and I love it but don't love it. I bought my kids each the $8 one and now that one I love and wish I had. I also have their hook knife and wood carving knife both of which I love.

    What I love about them is that they handle most of what I throw at them, they are very affordable and versatile

    Don't overlook the Mora classic line as well. I prefer their wood handles over the plastic rubbery grips.

    The sheaths are butt ugly, but those knives all come razor sharp. They all hold a good edge too.

    Oh yes, these are wonderful. I forge my own blades, but I still like using Moras cause the steel and edges are so good.

    You can always make a different sheath and even a new handle if you want, but the steel is what it's all about and Moras simply have great steel.

    Get it. use it. It will likely not be your last.

    My first Mora was a Companion model. Didn't know what to think of it at first. I was brand new to Bushcrafting at the time and tried to baton it through a forked and knotty piece of wood about wrist thick. I was horrified when I looked down and saw the knife was bent 45 degrees to the right. So I freed it from the wood (with a lot of effort) and to my surprise, like magic, it was perfectly straight again. It blew my mind and I've loved my Moras ever since. :)

    I have a 510 that is stippled and has a slip knotted lanyard so I can cinch it if I am doing work up high or near water so if I drop it, it isn't gone.
