I have never really been a fan of Mora knives. I find their thin blades, lack of a full tang, and at times, poor quality steel all negatives. There were better choices out there than a Mora. I had Mark Hill in Yorkshire UK made me a better iteration. 3/16 high quality O1 steel, meaty Walnut scales, full tang, leather sheath. It showed up the other day, and I am very pleased. The thicker blade allows for a stronger scandi grind edge, and the full tang is a huge improvement over the short tang molded into a plastic handle. This week, I'll take it on a hike in the Big Gum Swamp in the Osceola NF, and see how it performs there. In the back yard, it has already impressed with it's cutting and carving abilities.
