I cannot say I am a knife collector, but somehow I always have at least 3 knives in my fishing bag or my PFD and will always readily accept a new knife in my collection. I don’t have expensive knives, but always in a search for cheaper, best buy knife that gives a lot of value for money spent.
If you haven’t heard of Morakniv Company before this article is really worth reading.
Swedish municipality Mora where Morakniv company is from has a long tradition in knife making.They have been producing sharp knives for more than 400 years so they probably know a thing or two about knife making.Knives are produced in their factory in Mora, Sweden which guarantees control over manufacturing process. They produce blades from 3 different kinds of highly praised Swedish steel each with their own properties:
- Stainless steel
- Carbon steel
- and Laminated steel
Blades are heat treated in their secret process which ensures that every knife has a blend of qualities (sharpness, strength, flexibility).
Simple construction, strong and extremely sharp blade makes them reliable, quality product, and the icing on the cake is their price. For as low as 15€ you can get a great knife for you fishing, camping and outdoor activities.
I first fell in love with a Mora Clipper 840 knife with a carbon steel blade which came razor sharp, so easy to resharp and stays sharp quite long. Knife is so versatile you can use it for any outdoor activities and even basic bushcrafting. Knife is 15 Euros and I got so much more in this knife that the price would suggest.
Clipper was replaced by Mora Companion so that had to be my 2nd knife from Mora. Mora Companion is a similar to Clipper, but has some great improvements. New, ¾ stick tang length resulted in stronger and more powerful knife capable for even more demanding tasks and bushcrafting. Price is still in 15Euro range. Best Buy knife ever, one is always in my car and one in my fishing bag.
For fishing and filleting they have another great knife

This long fillet knife with a blade made of cold rolled Swedish stainless steel. Sharp, easy to clean and comfortable safe handle makes it perfect for your fishing outing. Price is around 35 Euros.
Their last, most powerful knife which is on my wish list is Garberg with Multi-Mount sheet. This powerful, full tang knife is designed for toughest tasks.
Garberg knife is Mora’s the most robust knife ever made with a new revolutionary handle material, nearly unbreakable. 3,2mm thick blade made from high-grade Swedish stainless steel guarantees durability.
