Hi Sam,

Take care,

Jesper

Remind Java not to upset the Vox if this is how he refers to his close family <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

Jesper, may I presume that the knife in question is a Mora 2000, made by K.J. Eriksson?

Got me one of those last week. Sandvik 12C27 blade steel and only SEK 89:- ($10). Must be the best bang for its $ ever made!!

Depaul,
I´m hoping that he will be able to get a couple of those. I have made 3 customs for hunting with that special blade. Very good skinners..

Good Day Vox!

Guess this thread must have slipped past my radar.. *hee-hee!* Good to hear that your old man is having a chill of a time at the ski-races.. Man, I'd only seen some documentary of such nature on TV.. They musta been really awesome.. Never skied in my life.. Saw snow for the first time two years ago in Golden, Co. Oh yeah, Thanks a million for the Moras. Heard that there are laminated ones.. is it true? I'd just finished with a feild evaluation with the Moras you had sent me.. Totally awesome! Its just a matter of taking the pictures and getting the evaluation articles written.. Mmmm.. speaking of tools, I'm kinda interested in getting a Nordic Axe.. Also putting some Tomahawks into consideration.. Check this out in the picture post.. <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0><img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0><img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

Hey Voxnaes, I'd like to know more about the Mora knives. I have a -+ 40 years old knife, on the blade it says: Erik Frost / Mora / Sweden. Red handle, red sheat.

Jeffrey, What you got there sounds like an original Mora knife. Frost is the biggest company up there now. These knives are hardworkers, no nonsense utility and great tools!!
Vox.
Samo,
I think the ones you already have are laminated. Most Nordic blades are made that way.
Vox.
Java,
Ship the Pivots off to me (You are 100% sure they aren´t one hand openers!) Then we will see if the police have the hots for me or not...Hopefully NOT!<img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

Hi All,

Samo it looks like we forumites from colder climes are making you into an 'artic knife knut'...Moras (beautiful knives), Nordic axes, next on the list, Puukkos and Ulus!

This learning goes both ways as well. Thank you Samo for introducing me to knives from warmer climates. They are facinating to us 'winter people'. I love the golok, Keris and Malaysian native knives which are unique, appealing to the eye and highly functional.

Vox, did "The Old Fart" do well in the race? LOL

O.K. then Vox.
I really like this knife, it really looks old ,(40 years old), but which Mora's are you talking about? I'd really like to know everything about knives, as far it's possible. You're talking about folers, aren't you?

Howdy Joyce!

Yeah, I'm getting frostier by the day with the Moras and Puukkos!! <img src="tongue.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> Over here, it is the golok that RULES!! They are fine cutting tools! Hey Vox ~ 200km?? Wow!! That's a looong drive. It will be a loooong trip if you have to visit your dad on a pair of skis.. <img src="tongue.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

Jeffrey,
No we are talking FB´s.
Joyce,
The Mora run is a 90 km. skiing race. The "old fart" made it in ca. 9 h.
Quite good time when you consider the fact that he only had 5 days of real snow here in Denmark for practice. The rest of the year he uses roling ski´s for training...

mmmm... some years ago, well, very long ago, did invent a sorta ski with wheels so that he could skiff through grass.. thus enabling him to train in summer for the winter games.. I can briefly recall it being introduced to Malaysia (with an all-year round temp of 27°C ~ 32°C!!!) but didn't kinda took off because the skiers had to aviod cow dung on the pastures like a minefield.. <img src="tongue.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0><img src="tongue.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0><img src="tongue.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> then came 'rollerblade' which actually made it rather big here..
