Description
The Mora Companion Heavy Duty is a powerful tool for bushcrafters, hunters and outdoor enthusiasts. Suitable for batoning, the Companion Heavy Duty features a thick, 1/8-inch (3.2mm) carbon steel blade with a slightly blunter 27 Degree edge angle for high load capacity and maximum sharpness resistance. The Companion HD has an extra large ergonomic handle with a soft high-friction grip. The classic scandi grind combined with high quality carbon steel makes the knife easy to resharpen. Mora knives made from high carbon steel achieve high hardness, sharpen easily and are exceptionally tough. High carbon steels are preferred in applications that demand durability and frequent regrinding. The material is harder than stainless steel, allowing it to hold a sharper and more durably acute edge. Mora Knives are made from high-quality carbon steel. The carbon knife steels are characterized by ultra-fine carbides that result in superb forging and hardening properties. The absence of large carbide deposits promotes excellent edge sharpness for optimum cutting performance. Morakniv has been manufacturing the highest-quality knives in Mora, Sweden since 1891. Professionals worldwide trust the quality materials and fine craftsmanship of Mora Knives. Mora knives feature ergonomically-designed handles and employ premium-quality knife steel that is optimally adapted to the task for which the knife is intended

Ergonomics? Non-slip grip even when covered in blood? Intended for stabbing? In for a dozen.

Troll.

Knives were our first tools as a species and have been our constant companions for millions of years, since before we were even fully human... they were even an influence on what it means, physically, to be human. They are still the most basic and versatile tool we've ever developed. They have a few trillion uses.

That people can even think of them primarily or only as weapons just illustrates how incredibly sheltered and protected their lives have become, where they never need to make anything, never need to improvise anything, they can always depend on someone else to do everything they need for them, even cutting (pre-processing) their food for them to eat. They become so accustomed to this that they don't even recognize that it's done for them anymore, like dogs raised on kibble from birth that don't even know that they're meat-eaters.

Historically, that's an anomaly. The basics are still basic, whether you see them or not. The old realities have a strong tendency to re-assert themselves. Always, in much of the world, and sooner or later pretty much anywhere, people that helpless (and useless) suddenly don't do so well.

Even so, when that's not actually happening the helpless seem to spend a lot of effort in trying to persuade other people that anything other than total helplessness and dependence is completely unreasonable. Sometimes they move from persuading to coercing. It's for your own good, of course. They see the "big picture" that you're too stupid to see.

It's all just being reasonable. You don't NEED to be able to do anything for yourself, and you can't show that you do, because it's all done for you.

The people that are persuaded or coerced don't tend do so well when things change either.

Mora makes good knives for the money. Sometimes they are a wee bit cheaper on eBay. Repped.

Perhaps 45 years ago, I showed my uncle my beautiful Puma Game Warden folding knife that I'd purchased in Switzerland.
He asked; "What do you need a knife for?"
I just turned around and walked away; what a stupid question.

Note that this isn't the same knife as the last deal. It's the "heavy duty" version with a 3.2mm/0.0125 inch thick blade. The last deal was the 2.5mm blade.

Price seems to have gone up.

Come on, no need to troll. It's just a tool, for most people. For others it's a pretty shiny thing. There are lots worse things in deal threads here.

Imagine if someone trolled the hundreds of video game threads here about the losers who sit inside wasting their lives on games for kids, eating Doritos and drinking Pepsi. That would be stupid. Much like this. Each to his own, within limits.

Anyway, as to why someone might want this knife ... just for starters, it's a useful camping knife. Fires, food, etc. It's also cheap enough that if you're looking for a knife bigger than a utility knife for a DIY project around the house, you won't be too upset if it gets damaged.

Oh, I get it - wasn't making fun of him for taking a knife seriously. But I was making fun of him for writing a dramatic love letter to the history and usefulness of knives. Come on, it had to make you laugh too.

You just have to be careful to buy from a reputable seller, whether on eBay or off. Lots of fake knives around.

Come on guys...this is slickdeals...not "do you like knives?"

So with regard to the deal... I'm seeing $14 for green and $15.89 for orange...which I seem to recall as the price these knives were at last week. Anyone have any idea how OP got it down to $12?

Another plug for Morakniv. They are top on the bang-for-buck meter.

To follow the thread of discussion here as well: once you start to carry a knife you're realize how useful it is. I'm always handing it to people trying to rip things open with their teeth, mauling a box to rip it open, and basically trying to do things for which knives were intended. That said, this is not an EDC (every-day carry) knife. It's too big. You will look like a loon carrying this on the street.
