Good value, but has issues.
on February 13, 2013
Overall, there is not much to say negatively about the Mora Bushcraft. It provides good value at an excellent price.
My only concern is the belt loop. They provide two types, but the method of attacment to the knife pouch does not inspire confidence. If the pouch gets hit and moves much it could become detached and lost. Not an unlikely scenario for a knife designed for bushcraft and likely to be carried in the field. The belt loops are plastic and rigid, further increasing the chance they will become disengaged.
I have not tried it yet, but since they are plastic, it might be a fairly easy task to do some melting of the plastic to permantly lock one of the loops in place. Another solution could be some plastic desolving glue (like model glue) to do the same thing.
I think Mora would have been better served to choose one loop design and permanently attaching it to the pouch. A hang loop from leather would have been a nice choice.
I don't particulary like the exposed sharpener stone on the outside of the pouch, but this is more an exthetic objection than a practical one. Though the rough sharpener being placed so it can scratch things it comes in contact with does not appeal, plus making sliding it into the waistband or other clothing more difficult.
