    Default Picked up some Mora Bushcraft knives cheap!

    IMG_20190314_185507511.jpg Went to the Smokey Mountain Knife shop in Pigeon Forge Tenn. a few weeks ago. They had Mora's for as low as $9.99. Picked up three. One as a gift to a friend. Fantastic shop. If I lived closer I would be broke all of the time. Oh yeah, Picked up a nice hat too.

    I could stay at the SMKW all day long. If you can think of it they have it. Nice to window shop.

    A good place. With quality and lots of cheap knives(frost cutlery) too. I also like the cast iron store down the road

    WHAT IS SAD is the Pigeon RIVER that flows through is so CONTAMINATED that they don't allow fishing/swimming or wading.......Seems nobody cares as long as they rake the mighty tourist $$$$$.

    Mora is probably one of the best dollar values around. I've bought a few for gifts. etc.

    Those are priced less than the replaceable blades for the disposal blade knives. Can you sharpen them. At that price it wouldn't matter.

    Yeah, The first thing I did when I got back was to hone the edge down to shaving status. Then polished them with flits and leather till they got scary sharp.
    These are carbon steel which I like. The Stainless blades were $19 each.

    Most knives out of the box need a good sharping and to break the factory edge geometry. I got a set of field dressing knives in a carrying case that were scalpel sharp. Laid my thumb wide open wiping the blade off with a paper towel. Cut right through.

    Even a cheap knife can be sharpened......Will it stay that way after the first cut is the $64 question.

    Yes there is a magic to getting the steel the right hardness to retain an edge but also capable of being sharpened. I have a Chinese machete that is so hard you have to use a stone to sharpen. A file just glides over it like on "forged in fire". Even as hard as it is it still doesn't hold and edge very well. Cheap Chinese what else can you say. China, India, Pakaistan equal poor blade steel.
