Middle one was MF's.....no not gonna get rid of any...LOL....All are "experienced" deer hunting knives.
Mora's were popular back then as well.....
When you find something that sells for a decent price, works well, and stands the test of time....they are popular.

Yeah, have the original sheaths

This one's for making deer into stew. Mora still makes meat processing blades but not nearly as well as they used to imo.

You can still get the Moras with the unica sheath. They're the laminated steel classics. They cost $30 or so.

  Man, look at those sheaths!

   Does Mora even sell leather sheaths as an option any more?

They do with some knives.

I think they still make the 137.
