So I was at the local outdoor store this week, and I picked up a Swedish Fire Knife, which is a collaboration by Mora and Light My Fire. The awesome part is that it’s a mora knife with a fire steel made to fit inside the handle.
I haven’t yet gotten to use it much, but initial handling of it makes me really enjoy it, so far. It may change when using it with some use, but that’ll be determined.
I know how many people always bash mora for not being a tacti-cool full tang light sabre commie slaying rambo swiss army knife, but I’m not using it to build a freakin house, so it wont be having to hold up to really hard use (if it does fail, I usually have a back up anyway).
Here’s a link to the LMF page on the knife; http://www.lightmyfire.com/products/products/swedish-fireknife.aspx
(p.s., as I said, it’s not tacti-cool, because it’s not a cool camo-green haha)
As I use it more and more I’ll post updates and photos or video of it.

Knives are such a personal thing I don’t think there is a right or wrong, hope you do a full review and share your thoughts once you’ve put it through its paces.
If at first you don't succeed, excessive force is usually the answer.May 10, 2014 at 12:29 pm #13190
Mr Red, I like all the colors it is made in. About what price range is it?May 11, 2014 at 9:42 am #13333
Thanks Mr. Red. I like the concept.
And i have few Mora knives, looking forward for more info from you, and full review.May 11, 2014 at 12:39 pm #13355
Freedom I bought mine for close on to 30 CDN, but I’m sure they can be found for a bit cheaper (or more expensive depending on the place).

Awesome you got that knife. I was about to get it when I read that this is an official collaboration. Mora’s are just great and having your firestarter along like that is fantastic.
Please report back with your impressions as soon as possible.

I watched the video in the link and was impressed with the length of the tang. Looks sturdier than I thought it would be. I might give it a go if I find one.
