Just to throw this in the conversation. The Sami are the indigenous population in Scandinavia. ‘Lapp’ is actually regarded as a very derogatory term by the Sami. Friction only sheaths are very popular for the cold conditions as using snaps or fasteners with bulky gloves is very problematic. I should point out ‘neck knife’ style of carry is virtually non-existent in these far northern climes. ;)

I’m a big Mora fan, have a number of their knives, loan them to students on courses and agree they make a great gift.

I prefer the stainless steel to carbon personally… I also like leather sheathes. These plastic ones turn very brittle in the cold and break quite easily.
