Frosts Mora 840 Clipper High-Carbon/><br /> A great bushcraft knife for under $20? There

Actually, no. This bushcraft knife from Frosts Mora (aka Mora of Sweden) has everything you need in a survival knife and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.

The blade is made of high-carbon 1095 steel. That’s not top-of-the-line but it’s a fine choice that helps keep the price of the knife down. It’s hardened to a Rockwell Hardness of 59, which allows it to be quite sharp.

Note that this knife is also available in a stainless steel — that model is the 860 Clipper.

Out of the box, the blade will be sharp and easy to keep that way. Some have complained that the factory edge is a bit inconsistent. The steel blend and bevel of this knife, though, make for easy resharpening. If you’ve got decent sharpening skills, you should be able to create an excellent edge.

The blade measures 100mm, or just under four inches, while the length of the entire knife is just over eight inches (210mm).

The handle is plastic, with a rubberized, non-slip grip. It has an undersized finger guard for protection, though some people might wish for none at all.

The knife is very lightweight — so much so that you may even forget you’re wearing it. As such, it’s not really intended for heavy-duty tasks. If you want something for that, the Fallkniven H1 would be a better choice.

There are definitely pros and cons with this knife, but for the price you really can’t go wrong.
