My name is Sam, and I am a steel addict
« on: August 20, 2018, 10:50:36 AM »
I was looking at FB this morning, and a friend in Yorkshire, Mark Hill, posted a killer Mora style knife he had made.  It?s on the way, and at a great price.  He posts here as ?Hillbill?. 
When it shows up, i?ll Post some pictures.

Hello, Sam.... Looking forward to seeing it. I like his work.

O1 steel, Walnut scales, black liners.  Not a stick tang.  True Scandi grind.  I have two of Mark?s knives.  He is quite the blade smith.

The Mora style full tang has shipped.  Things got worse though.  Mark has agreed to tackle making me a Loveless style Chute knife.   Elmax steel,  green G10 handle.  These are very difficult blades to make.  I?m certain he will do a fine job.  Hope to get it by Christmas!

 the Mora style Knife Mark made for me arrived today  O1 steel,  Walnut scales.  Scandi grind.  An amazing knife.  Finally,  a mora I can love.   :)

I can't post with PictureTrail until they fix my account.  I can't figure out how to post the picture from IMGUR.  Photo Bucket is kaput.  I guess I won't be posting pictures here for awhile.

the resin wipes off.  A squirt of WD40 and it's gone.     I cut up a gallon bag of fat wood out of that stump yesterday.  It's a gold mine.
The knife is simply amazing.

were Mora knives as well made and as sturdy as this one is,  I probably would.  Now I know I could have bought a dozen Morakniv blades for about the same money,  but what the hey.
This one came with a very well made fitted leather pouch sheath.

I took a wilderness survival course once with an Opinel.  Everybody laughed at me.  I actually did better than those with a knife from "He who shall not be Named".  Another time, another place.


That said,  I would love a knife from that maker that made yours.
