During that time my company was having a rash of takeover style robberies and he said he would feel better if I had it.

So I graciously accepted it.

He taught me how to take care of it and stressed that oiling the blade was very important. So it stays in my bag with me where ever I go now.

So I have two knives with me at all times.

Siu you are AWESOME

Those are all neat but I love the simplicity of this Loveless style. The 'improved' handle is the one I tried - a very plain jane brown micarta fixed blade at a knife show about 2-3 yrs ago. Just the most perfectly balanced and comfortable handle man made item I've ever held. Pure genius.

I hear you ....my knife obsession started with the fact that my mom made my dad throw out his WWII British navy issue knife - so I wouldn't hurt myself I have so little to remember my dad by, and that would have been something very special for me.

I remember that my grandfather always carried two Moras... he also had a small one that was always found in his shirt pocket and I do not know what happened to this one.

He was born in Sweden and am sure that this added to his liking of a product that was made in the country he grew up in.

Mine has been taken on countless hiking and camping trips and has seen a great deal of use... I have used it to cut through heavy metal tins and the blade goes through these like they were made of paper and still kept a razor sharp edge.

I am always amazed that such a low cost knife performs so very well and actually had my brother offer to trade his new Buck knife for my little Mora.

I think I will get one for him for Christmas.

i only bought the Atlantic Salt because i couldn't find the Rescue at the time.

the Rescue has been my "go-to" utility knife since the day i bought it, and has only been sharpened twice in 16 years. still opens one-handed, still cuts fine. the first couple serrations are a little worn, but that's about it.

First the pellet/BB gun thread, and now a knife one. Once again, i cant contribute because I don't think we're allowed to carry around a knife that big. Maybe a small 5-tool swiss army one.

Exactly. I can cover them better with my M4 and 203 from the rear.

I was going to post this one but the other showed the multi tool more. The laces on the boots are loose because it's the first time I put them on. I just got them about an hour before this pic was taken.

Those are nice boots.

I got a pair of WWII style Corcorans (the ones that weigh a ton) two winters ago I've still never worn - best motorcycle boots i ever wore; I killed my last pair years ago. you've got me thinking how difficult they'd be to ride in.....(Bicycle)
