Hey /out/, im in need of a new knife. Hopefully staying under 50$. Im leaning towards pic related. Thoughts? Suggestions?
Got that exact knife in the mail the other day, seems great but mine came with a shit grind (fingers brushing to check visibly rolled edge lol). After a bit of work sharpening and testing seems to hold well enough, sheath is great, go for it and enjoy.
Mora is one of the best you can get for the money.
Make sure to keep it clean though , I know mine tries to corrode any chance it gets.
Also, for the love of god, keep the original scandi grind. When you're sharpening lay it flat along the entire edge. I've seen a good many flat ground knives ruined by incorrect sharpening.
depstie it practically being the /out/ ferodra they are good value for money knives
no it's not full tang but if youre not tatd who has to baton the shit out of every bit of wood to the point of destruction it's a good light weight well made knife. I've had one for about 8 years now as a bait knife in my tackle box in and out of salt water and it's still going fine, I've abused the fuck out of it- pried limpets off rocks cut ropes onto concrete and shock-horror batoned driftwood to build a fire.
I've posted this before, but if you're looking for a folder, the Buck Bantam is awesome for about $20. Very sharp out of the box and super light weight. I love mine.
Comes in many colors and patterns, not just camo.
I have that exact knife color and all.I really like it. They're not very expensive and hold a good edge. The rubberized grip is a nice touch too. The only gripe I have is the belt clip is plastic and tends to bend out of shape if you're not careful.
Yep, awesome knife for the price. Especially since it's so light, with a larger than expected blade. Comes in 3 sizes. BBW, BLW, and BHW. I belive BBW is smallest and BHW is largest.
Comes in some cool patterns too.
One more image, and I'll stop "buck bantam spamming"
Reporting back in. I bought it in stainless steel. It's amazing. The complaints about the spines not being finished is an on and off thing apparently because mine came in beautiful. Enjoy. Go for it.
I love Buck knives.
For a few bucks more (deal with it) I think the 110 is nicer if you don't mind the extra grams. A true classic.
Here are a couple of my buck knives. The 113 Ranger Skinner has cleaned many animals and still has a great edge - 10 deer, 3 elk, 2 moose, and countless grouse and hares.
Realistically, you don't need anything more than a mora knife (companion preferably for the price, but there is the bushcraft knife), maybe an opinel 6, and then a hatchet. If you go with an estwing hatchet then you can have very, very effective camp cutlery that will handle all of your camp tasks, for under 50$.
But it's fun to have big, expensive knives and I personally do carry a sharpened prybar (bk2).
