The Mora Companion Heavy Duty is a powerful tool for bushcrafters, hunters and outdoor enthusiasts. Suitable for batoning, the Companion Heavy Duty features a thick, 1/8-inch (3.2mm) carbon steel blade with a slightly blunter 27 Degree edge angle for high load capacity and maximum sharpness resistance. The Companion HD has an extra large ergonomic handle with a soft high-friction grip. The classic scandi grind combined with high quality carbon steel makes the knife easy to resharpen. 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. Mora Knives are made from high-quality carbon steel. The carbon knife steels are characterized by ultra-fine carbides that result in superb forging and hardening properties. The absence of large carbide deposits promotes excellent edge sharpness for optimum cutting performance. 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.

3yr update photos added to show the damage. And it still sharpens to a wicked edge!
The companion HD like the robust HQ and the bushcraft models have a thicker blade than standard mora knives and that thickness is constant throughout the entire spine up to the tip. This thickness combined with a wider angle to the blade makes the companion HD suitable to baton wood and other hardcore knife work. My thinner bladed Mora #1 does fine work like thin slicing onions better than the thick bladed companion HD but I prefer a blade that flexes less and the added durability. 1/8 inch is generally considered to be the minimum thickness for a good quality fixed blade knife.
The sharpness of the blade is what impresses me most about mora knives. It takes a sharper edge than any other knife I own even other carbon steel blades. After stropping this blade it can cut space and time, it's mind bendingly sharp, sharper than a strait razor.
Carbon steel bladeslike this one can easily be used to create sparks for firestarting. I believe that is why this knife does not have a Sharp 90° edge on the spine of the blade. Although it does have a 90° edge on the spine at the very tip that can strike a fero rod.
This knife is carbon steel and as such will stain as soon as you start using it. I used it for one weekend camping for all of my knife needs, when I got home it was pretty rusty(SEE CUSTOMER IMAGES) even though I had oiled it before leaving home. To help prevent corrosion many people online have put a forced patina on this and other mora carbon bkade knives. I had great success using vinegar to force a patina(SEE CUSTOMER IMAGES) and find it's more rust resistant, retains oil on the blade better and looks cooler! If you want a pretty shiny blade get a stainless steel mora not this knife.
This knife is intended by Mora for any task including heavy tasks like batoning and job site cutting. In Sweden this style knife is used in place of utility knives and box cutters in the USA. I use this knife as a light backcountry camping knife that pulls heavy duty as the main use knife for me and my wife.
Overall it's a micron sharp work/beater/bushcraft knife for pros in the know.
For those who do not know, this knife, the Mora 860 ("Companion" series) MG heavy duty carbon steel, is an improved version of the Mora 840 models ("Clipper" series). The main difference is that Companion blades have a significantly longer tang. You can google images search the difference in the tang between the Clipper and Companion. I prefer the improved tang because it makes me feel more comfortable using it, and it will hold up better to rough use.
The sheath is plain and simple, nothing super fancy, though it is quite durable. If you prefer a leather sheath, you can either make one yourself or buy one online (I recommend bensbackwoods[dot]com though there are many others you can choose from). Like the Clipper's sheath, it comes with a sturdy belt clip, so it is easy to put on and take off.
The knife itself is Scandinavian grind and has a 3.2mm thick blade at 4.09 inches long, and an overall length of 8.86 inches with a blade width of a hair over 3/4 of an inch. It has a comfortable rubber handle which won't slip out of your hands easily.
The Companion also comes in stainless steel (Companion F, Companion F Rescue, Companion F serrated, and Companion MG, though none have the more robust 3.2mm thick blade), if you so prefer. I personally like the carbon steel because it can be sharpened in the field and will hold a better edge - Mora's carbon steel knives are hardened to 59-60 Rc, as opposed to 57-58 Rc with their stainless steel (Sandvik) blades.
The knife arrived very sharp and ready for use.
The Companion is a joy to work with, being very effective at chopping and carving green wood - it is also very handy at splitting dead wood, and making feathersticks was easily accomplished. You will find this knife much more capable of batoning than the Mora 2000 and other profile-ground blades, which have a tapered front (meaning the blade thins out towards the point), making chopping and splitting difficult.
I can find only one drawback - the back of the knife is not squared-off enough to make it very effective with a firesteel. I wouldn't recommend using the edge of the knife for this purpose, as it will cause the blade to become blunt.
If you are prone to placing your knife and-or sheath down somewhere and forgetting where you put it, you might want to opt for the Companion heavy duty that comes in orange - it is much easier to spot.
This is an excellent bushcraft knife of high quality and low price. It can tackle a wide variety of tasks with ease and never ceases to impress me. The Companion heavy duty is clear proof that you don't need to spend over $70 for a superb bushcraft knife.
Thank you Mora ;).
**UPDATE** late July, 2013 - I have been using this knife for over half a year, and it is holding up quite well to regular bush tasks. I have only needed to sharpen it a few times with a fine stone followed by stropping. I also put a forced patina on the blade to give it a rustic look ;).
One thing I failed to mention before was that the handle (121mm long, or approximately 4.76 inches) is a little big for people with normal/average-sized hands, yet the knife is still comfortable to hold and not at all cumbersome. This is an advantage in winter, as a slightly larger handle makes it easier to use the knife when wearing gloves or mittens.
