I don't own one, but one is on my future list.
Which one(s) would you recommend?

My jarvenpaa that came w my leuku is my fave!  Grind is off somewhat but i dont care...its a birchwood handled razor blade!  I used it today picking morels and also prepping and cooking them.  Anubis1335 Seal of Approval!



Description from www.ragweedfore.com

The medium size is about 8 1/4" overall. The blade is about 3 7/8" (10cm) long and .725" wide. The knife and sheath weigh a bit less than 5 ounces. Many think this is the ideal size for everyday use.
#5226-b, unpolished carbon steel blade, black except for the bevel

I had a Lauri blank that a friend handled with zebrawood and something else. It was very nice, wish I hadn't traded it off!

I don't own one as of now. I had a Mora a while back and gave myself a nasty gash while drawing it from it's sheath. I have been leery of no guard knives ever since, but I have a hankering again.

Well I guess I should make clear that I guess I misspoke. 
I have a few MORAS I was thinking that you were talking about the true Finnish puukko knives which I do not have.

No worries! I was just talking about the style of knife.
