I have only had this knife for a week, I have used it to do a variety of basic bush tasks, I have seen this knife handle a multitude of camp/bush tasks on youtube, one of the reasons I bought it. The knife came hair shaving sharp out of the box; though the blade has a scandi grind, there is a primary edge ground on that, which created a delicate tip. The 90 degree spine is super aggressive (there is a tiny burr on the spine, which I took no notice of), which is sharp enough to easily cut your thumb (without you knowing) if you are choking up on the knife to do delicate carving work and push cuts into wooden tent stakes.
I have since learned to hold the knife differently (when not using gloves) when doing fine carving or push cuts. Could be a production fault with my knife, but just to be on the safe side, check how sharp the spine of the knife is before you choke up on it to do carving. Otherwise a great knife!

This knife fills you with confidence when you hold it. It's got the Mora name attached to a razor sharp hunk of high tech stainless steel that will be serviceable as hatchet in baton mode right down to a being fine food preparation tool.
The material on the handle is less rubbery feeling than my Fallkniven F1 which gives me the impression it is a slightly tougher material. I would have liked an orange handle. The black handle and silver blade will make it easy to loose if dropped in dense scrub
The edge on the back of the blade is a very crisp 90 degrees. This made me realise how dull and rounded this edge is on my other knives. This should make my Ferro rod more sparky for less effort.
The knife is secured in its plastic sheath with a brass press studded vertical top strap. I'm left handed, wearing knives on your left hip with a horizontally orientated strap means that when pushing through thickets the horizontal press stud can catch on passing sticks and pop open. Apart from the symmetrically shaped handle this detail enhances the ambidextrous nature of the knife. The sheath can be securely mounted on the right or left hip.
I opted for the multi-mount because I found with the usual vertical hanging position of my knife, the handle and its securing clip would interfere with the waist belt of my pack. I often wrap the waist belt over the top of the knife handle by mistake when putting on my pack.
The multi mount has the option of either using the plastic bracket to attach with Mini Tek-Lok - which I intend to use to mount it horizontally to the front of my belt. Alternatively I can dispense with the plastic bracket and use the tough rubbery belt loop supplied that slips over the plastic sheath, and hang it vertically from my waist with its belt loop. This isn't very clearly explained on the publicity material available that I have seen.
The hole for the lanyard is a bit tiny. I bought some bright orange para fire cord to put through it and managed (but only just) to thread it through the lanyard hole. This will be both a piece of back up tinder in wet weather and to make it easier to find my knife should I drop it.
I intend to slip a length of rubber bicycle inner tube over the plastic sheath and to use this to attach my ferro rod and/or a bic lighter to the knife. The inner tube will alsoserve as waterproof tinder.
The plastic bracket is a bit bulky but I'm hoping it will make the knife both easier to get to while wearing my pack, without the knife handle being pushed around by my pack waist belt as I walk.
I can always go back to vertical wearing with the Mora supplied belt loop and invest in a dangler to drop it below belt level if this doesn't prove as convenient as I think it will.
Mora have been promoting this for the past eight months, it was worth the wait to get one of the first in Australia, and to know I have something of highest quality that I can rely on.
