Morakniv Classic series of knives, developed by Mora of Sweden for over a century, have been proven reliable by generations of carpenters and wood carvers. The Classic Craftsmen 601 features a 3.9-inch carbon steel blade, red birch wood handle and double-sided finger protection. Mora knives made from high carbon steel achieve high hardness, sharpen easily and are exceptionally tough. High carbon steels are preferred in applications that demand durability and frequent regrinding. The material is harder than stainless steel, allowing it to hold a sharper and more durably acute edge. Morakniv has been manufacturing the highest-quality knives in Mora, Sweden since 1891. Professionals worldwide trust the quality materials and fine craftsmanship of Mora Knives. Mora knives feature ergonomically-designed handles and employ premium-quality knife steel that is optimally adapted to the task for which the knife is intended. Sheath included.

The handle fills the hand pretty well. The handle is too smooth for me to want to use the knife without a guard. The guard also makes the thing look a little less like a steak knife. I can understand why some might think that the handle isn't wood. It feels like wood to me, but it is extremely light.
The sheath is quite functional. The knife is held securely. The top of the sheath comes halfway up the handle. There is no way to get a full grip before drawing the knife out. The easiest way seems to be to pull up on the guard and grab the handle as it comes out of the sheath. The worst thing is that the belt slot won't easily fit over a thick leather belt.
Any negatives are outweighed by the excellent value. It's also nice to have a knife that isn't trying to look tacticool.
The double finger guard on my 601 is a little off center, idk if this is for a reason like to fit in the sheath better or anything but it's a minor looks issue. This knife has all the benefits listing in it's reviews and makes a nice carry, backup carry, or yardwork utility knife with a little more style than the simple 511. Yeah carbon steel is more maintenance than stainless but i like oiling my knifes and watching them shine so thats not an issue and as long as you can avoid rust, stains and patina show a well used knifes character.
After receiving my 601 i was so pleased with the quality that i ordered the Mora Companion in the military green as well and am very happy with both knives. Mora sheaths and handles are functional if not attractive but the blades and grinds are great, neither of mine were what i would call shaving sharp but arrived sharper than most knives i have ordered.
