Over at Amazon, the Mora Companion fixed blade knives are is currently on sale, or at least certain styles are on sale.
For inexplicable reasons, the blue-handled and sheathed knife is lower priced than the other colors and styles, at just $10.
I own a couple of Mora knives, and judging from the popularity of previous Mora knife and deal posts, quite a few readers own these knives too.
These Mora Companion knives are a great fit for workshops, home use, garden use, and I can see some pro applications for them as well. They are also of course well-suited for outdoors adventures and tasks.
The blade is 4.1″ long an dmade from 12C27 stainless steel. Mora describes the blade as being ideal for carving, food prep, and cutting tinder. It is indeed a very versatile size and style blade.
Somehow, despite the low pricing, Mora still manages to be make these knives in Sweden.
I like my Mora knives, although they don’t see daily or even weekly use at times. Sometimes there are long spans when I don’t reach for them at all. But, when I need something sturdy, comfortable, and abusable, that’s when the Mora comes out again.
They’re well-made and very attractively priced for what you get. The finish could be better, but do you really care that the spine of the knife doesn’t have a mirror-finish polish? This is a knife to be used, and there’s not much functional benefit in polishing up the spine and driving up the price.
For $10, just buy one. Mora knives also make for great gifts. It comes with the color-matched plastic sheath.
Update 12/9/19 1pm: It looks like this color sold out. There are a couple of others priced at $12-13, and the knife is still a great value at those prices.
Amazon doesn’t say when the promo will end, all they say is that this $9.98 is the “with deal” price. I believe this is the lowest price we’ve seen on this knife in about two years. Last year, the blue Mora Companion knife was $9.72 as part of a December deal of the day, with other colors priced at $11 to $13.
If you’re not a fan of the blue colors, Mora makes the same knife in other colors, and also one with a carbon steel blade.
Thank you to AW for the tip!
