    Yeah, pulled a regular EG there... left distal tip, my thumbnail stopped it or else it might have gone down to the bone. One in the kitchen that apparently needs sharpening, 'cause a measly nail shouldn't slow it down with that much force behind it.

    I guess even "expert knife handlers" have a bad day now and again, I usually cut myself in the shop, not opening a heavy plastic bag.

    This is the first or second Mora knife I bought. I've had it 4 years at least, I whittled down the pommel to fit in the new sheaths(with another mora, of course), hammered it into a tree and stood on it, just 'cause, have banged it into numerous steel pieces over the years, and that fucker is sharp as sharp gets. Yes, I regularly resharpen it, (about every other week, based on use, matteroffact)

    they are great, useful, knives. I'll always have four or five of them around for 'real' work.

    There are so many beautiful blades in the preceding pages! I have too many hobbies so I must choose wisely.

    With the recent re-release of the SOCOM series from Microtech I finally got my hands on an 'American' tanto. The blade is quite long from spine to edge so it actually cuts quite well for a tanto. With S35-VN steel & two effectively straight edges it's a pleasure to sharpen compared to my knives baring 154CM or S30V blade steel.

    Nice knife, but I will say that the picture makes it look like the tip would stick out of the end of the handle when closed. Perspective is a weird thing in pictures!

    At the risk of seeming like a complete and utter moran, I'm curious about the black piece with the fish motif along the spine of the grip. Is that an emery board, or fire-starter?
