Traditional Swedish Mora Knife

Just took delivery of one of these bad boys. It came out of the box as the sharpest factory honed knife I have ever handled. This thing is almost straight-razor sharp. If I gently graze it against my arm hair, it shaves it right off.

I wouldn't want to use it for heavy duty stuff, but that isn't what it's designed for. The handle is a bit slippery when moist and it doesn't have any sort of hand guard. But for a super-sharp light-medium duty knife, it looks to be pretty sweet. I may grip-tape the handle or use my mini-router to groove it. Or I may leave it as-is and try one of these: http://www.amazon.com/New-Swedish-Mil-M ... 612&sr=8-1

ETA: I bought it after reading Marko's review: http://munchkinwrangler.wordpress.com/2 ... arp-swede/

I picked up a couple of them. I went with this one that has the guard.

Great blade. I have a few, including one that Denis gave me from Finland, a traditional Saami knife.
