While I'd love to carry my Mora No. 2 everywhere, my coworkers might give me some strange looks. I was looking for a folding knife that would fill the role of a EDC (for work) scandi.
Enter the Finn Wolf. It has just about everything I was looking for. I wanted good steel, a good edge, pocket clip, and a good locking system.
The AUS-8 steel is heat treated quite well. I used it to carve some kiln dried black walnut. In the process I used it to break chunks away with a twisting motion. I hate using a blade to pry, but this is no frail blade. It took all the cutting and prying with aplomb. I did this withut touching up the blade. I rarely use a knife with the factory edge. I did manage to chip the blade by knocking my farrier's rasp against it. The chip is tiny and I'll eventually sharpen it away.
The locking system is stiff out of the blister pack. I knew to expect this. The nature of the system ensures a tight lock and thus can be difficult to unlock. Opening and closing helped some, but using the blade really helped the lock settle in and smooth out. Now I can open and close it singlehandedly. It's spring is still stiff, but it's smooth. On a knife this size, I don't mind it at all.
Overall a great knife for when you can't tote your well loved Mora. Would recommend.
P.S. I dyed the handles burgundy.
There are two primary issues with the knife.
1. The thumb stud is right in the cutting path, which impacts both use and sharpening. This bothered me enough that I removed the thumb stud and use it like that. It would have been much better is Cold Steel had used a slot like Leatherman or a hole like Spyderco (neither of which is patented as I understand it). With the stud removed, I can still open it one handed with a wrist flick in a pinch, but I consider it a 2-hand opening knife now for the most part. Maybe I’ll try to cut my own groove someday.
2. The thing I can’t easily fix may be part of the design, but I don’t like it. The deep belly caused by the puuko design is difficult enough to sharpen, but made even worse, because they vary the grind as you move towards the tip. If you look closely in pictures you can see how much shallower the grind is by the end creating a much more obtuse angle. This makes the last inch of the blade worse for cutting, though I’m sure it makes for a much stronger tip. For me I would have rather had the same grind throughout so that you don’t get that loss in cutting ability.
Overall a good blade for the price and I’m happy I got it. If Cold Steel added a hole for opening, made this a drop point blade to reduce the belly, and kept the grind consistent, I think it would be about as perfect a woods knife as you would ever get at this price.
As someone else mentioned, the blade is a little more difficult to sharpen toward the tip because the grind steepens somewhat. But with a little time I got it shaving sharp all across the blade. The blade has held up fine after using it to sharpen about 10 wooden stakes and to cut various boxes, etc. around the house.
Overall, I really enjoy the look, feel, and performance of this knife.
