Look, Bushcrafters are sometimes hard to buy for at Christmas. To say the least, they’re picky about what they carry into the bush, but I’ve found that very few turn down a Mora knife. They’re priced right and just flat work in camp. That’s why I’ve put together a Mora Madness list for the bushcrafters in your life this Christmas.
Before we get into the list, I want to mention that Morakniv makes knives of all varieties. They each have different qualities that make them special, and at least for the knives we’re going to touch on here, they range in price from just under $100 at the high end to $12.99 at the low end. The point here is that no matter who you’re buying for this Christmas, you’ve got some great options with Mora.
