    How good is the Mora classic 1? I saw that there is a 60 dollar version where the birch handle is not painted red but just treated and the steel is laminated instead of carbon.the carbon classic 1 is like 15 bucks on amazon . Thoughts?

    The laminated will hold the edge longer. It can take a bend and be bent back to true without breaking.
    The #1 has a small handle and I personally prefer the #2.
    You will find the regular carbon classic to be very useful and easy to sharpen unless You are spoiled by using supersteels.

    My favorite is a more than 30 year old laminated #2 with my own handle. Still going strong.

    Yes absolutely!
    I have an inherited Mora #2 in carbon that belonged to my Father In Law. Still in very useable condition.

    I like everything they make, get the $15 version first - the value is excellent, if you want a more fancy version later, go for it : )
