I have come to appreciate Scandinavian style knives, and own several Mora knives dating from the 1950’s through the current Classics. The Kauhavan Puukkopaja has a carved handle that’s more secure in the hand than morakniv’s barrel handles, a peened over tang, and a nice leather sheath with a hard plastic liner. I’m not saying Moras are inferior at all, but for just $15 more this knife is a really nice upgrade. I’ve also been completely satisfied with every order from Ragweed Forge.
