    I have it in hand, the sheath leaves much to desire. My gosh will it take an edge! That's why I like vg10 & the inside layer of the laminated blade is just that. I will have a leather sheath by the first of the year with a firestarter loop.

    I carry a Grohmann #4 carbon steel.

    Solid knife capable of heavy use, the carbon steel takes a fine edge. Works in a pinch as a striker with a flint for fire making, can't do that with stainless.

    I love my Kbar, have had it for over 30 years, I picked up a mora a couple of years ago and fell in love witht the little workhorse so I went and got another with the ferro rod. Smart buy.

    I literally took my grandson out today for a day trip with some bushcraft involved. We made fire with ferro rod (really damp here) & a birds nest, learned a little on how to use a compass, and tried to kill something to eat. We went hungry, but had a good time.

    Somehow I hav ealways had a softspot for Buck. One of my first 'good' knives was the F10 folding hunter, when i was about 14/15.
    Still have it. I'm now almost 43 :-).
    I really love almost all Fallkniven models. fabulous craftmanship and just plain gorgeous.

    But, if you look al price and quality the Mora just can't be beaten. It's a great knive and you don't hav eto be all too carefull to use it.
    Adn that counts as well. There's no use in having the most expensive damaststeel, and be afraid to even take it with you.
    That's fine if you're a colector, but no use at all as a bushcraft knive.

    Can't beat a Mora or similar Scandi stuff for the money. Keep your eyes open as we are now seeing thicker stock AEB-L hit the market. Battle Horse made some light bush blades from the stuff recently and the customers supposedly really like the stuff. Better choice than VG10, 420 HC, etc for that application IMO and now you can get it in thickness up to .196.

    Interesting as vg10 is my favorite knife steel. I will have to look into it. How is it better out of curiosity? My knowledge of steels is still limited...
