It's no secret around here that I'm not a huge fan of Mora Knives, what is not widely known is that I was at one time and still have great memories of many hunts, fishing, and camping experiences that all included using my vintage Mora's.
Those were the ones with the Birch handles and finer finished blades that weren't so prone to chipping and edge rolling, they came with real leather sheaths back then and could be made scalpel sharp and touched up easily.
Granted, todays Moras are great performers For Their Price Point, their new lines of HD outdoors knives are a good choice for those looking for decent performance for very little investment and don't mind carrying a non traditional knife with rubber handles in a cheap plastic sheath.
Knife snobbery aside, I still have allot of respect for Mora and Hultafors knives considering their cost vs. ability, my personal preference runs to 1095 or 0-1 steel, nice exotic wood scales and leather sheaths, blade length is also a consideration, four inches is my minimum, but I do have a couple that run under like my Enzo Trapper at 3-3/4", I prefer a blade length
closer to 5" inches, most of my knives are Convex but I'm warming up to Scandi.
OK, back to the Eldris, I'm trying to understand the draw that this knife would hold for an outdoorsman, not the bush hippy spandex wearing through hiker or climber who can hike the whole Pacific trail with nothing but a pen knife and a finger nail clipper, but the average bushcrafter who builds stuff in camp, processes fire wood, cleans fish and small game, can you really comfortably peel potatoes or fillet a Blue Gill with one of those sawed off stubby handled knives ?
