    Who carries their Mora knife on a neck lanyard? I do when I'm camping or out in the woods. I made it out of paracord. It's much thicker than it has to be but it is very comfortable and gives me lots of cordage should I need it.

    Lets see yours.

    I love mora's. I've had terrible luck with them though. Every time I buy one, it gets stolen! I used to keep one in my tool pouch all the time, but after you go through 5 or 6 of them in a year...you get tired of replacing them. I might have to buy another and try it as a necker/

    Neck carry about 90% of the time. They are lighter than some of my smaller dedicated neck knives so why not:)

    looks like most use the standard sheath. Nice wrap stormdrane. I question the retention as i bend and twist the upper body although I have no problems with my 2000 in a belt carry. Am I just paranoid? Most of my other necks are inverted and its never been a question.

    I like to neck carry during winter months so I don't have to reach through layers of clothing to get my knife. Moras are particularly nice for neck use..

    For a little extra security on retention, just add a short knotted loop of paracord that'll fit over the top of your Mora's handle, attached at the belt loop. Upright or inverted, it'll keep the knife in the sheath until you thumb it out of the way... ;)

    Not for sale, I encourage folks to get some cord and give it a try themselves. I used a chain sinnet to wrap the Mora sheath, so the cord could be unraveled quickly if needed for something else. The paracord neck lanyard(with safety break-away remains with the knife/sheath). More info on how to do the wrap in my blog post, and a short video on the basics of the chain sinnet. You'd just tie the chain sinnet directly around your sheath, instead of a separate 'mandrel' like in the video demo for a pouch... ;)

    I did this to secure the knife a little more. Cross it at the back, pull up, slide the cord lock to tighten. I suppose that this could work with neck carry also.
