Mora!


This is a longshot as I am sure my readership pool is very small, but I am trying to get my hands on a specific model mora that is not made anymore. I'd like one or preferably two plastic OD green handled carbon steel blade knives. Top dollar paid, or we can work out a trade.
Thanks for reading!

From Ben's Backwoods online catologue, I am looking for the bottom knife:

Follow up:
I emailed both Ragweed forge and Bens backwoods and neither has them in stock at all. Ragweed forge emailed me back with this:
Hello,

Thank you for the message and inquiry.
I'm sorry, the OD Craftsman has been discontinued. I have none.
Actually the Craftsman line itself has been discontinued. I'm selling
off old stock.

I have quite a bit on hand, but when it's gone that will be the end of it.

Best regards,
R

So get them while you can!

Have you tried ragweed forge? He carries just about every Mora out there and may have some in back-stock. Check this out: http://www.ragweedforge.com/SwedishKnifeCatalog.html

Thanks for the tip! I in fact have checked with Ragweed's online catalogue, but I have now emailed him as well.

Oh well...I'll be honest with you...the one I had was that same model and I found it on ebay for like $15 plus shipping in stainless. It's the only Mora I've ever managed to break. I was trying to split a rather hard and knotty piece of green wood and managed to pound the blade right through the plastic handle when beating on the back end....guess I shouldn't have tried to use the knife for other than its intended purpose. Chipped the blade nicely in the process as well.

I may still have the chipped and now handle-free blade laying around and I'll give it to you for free if you want it...maybe you can slap a better handle on there and grind the chip out?

Email me your snail mail at rangersquirrel@gmail.com if you want it.

Thanks Ranger, but I snatched up two on evilbay for 14 each. I am looking forward to them, but I guess I'll avoid pounding them into any trees....

Discontinued? I have two, well one. My Mrs has the other one. I keep mine in the back of my work van, great wee tool. I just bought 4 Mora utility knives, they worked out at $9.60 inc postage each. I live in Northern Ireland so they were about £6 in my currency. Smaller blade and more like the one Mors is pictured with in his book. I enjoy reading you blog, just found it today.
