    I got a couple of the Old Hickory 6" sticking knives for $7 each.

    I think a double edge knife with a round nose would be a dandy skinner. Cut with either side or the very tip with no worries of the point piercing.

    Another handy design would be a double edged Wharncliffe.

    That's going to be really hard to baton with. :D

    I wouldn't buy one myself.
    Looks cool yet I would have zero use for it.

    The narrow scandi grind is a joke. I'd rather buy the Old Hickory look-a-like and try my hand at a full hollow grind.

    Beat me to the punch. My sticker came from Dexter-Russell Green River. I don’t need another.

    I bought one of those Mora d-guard stickers. Seems meant for slaughterhouse use. I have no real use for it, no large livestock to stun, hang and bleed. It just seemed kind of incongruous to own a weapon made by an old and staid tool company. The Estwing tomahawk had the same appeal, but that is actually a useful general purpose tool. If Rubbermaid made a truncheon or Maglite made a stun gun, I would probably want those too, as collectibles at least.

    I say No!
    Mora has already made similiar knives in the past, but with wooden handles and models for military use like permission daggers.

    For a spearpoint Mora I went with a cutoff drawknife, convexed and with a swedge but single-edge.

    No problems in batoning & splitting firewood and very sharp for woodworking chores.
