So I got me a Mora 2000 after several year of Ho humming !
I remember when they came out , I was all ... Ho Hum !
Anyways , for some reason I had a 2000 itch that needed scratching .

THe knife is well polished .
THe handle is comfortable .
The knife is relatively light weight ( make for a 2nd knife )
THe blade is UBER thin ! I don't want to test it .. But I might be able to break it with my bare hands !
Especially where it goes into the handle , if not possibly at the middle of the blade .
It does not fill me with confidence in regards to Bushy craft or survival or as a hunting knife !
As a second knife for cutting / slicing things = Sure . As a primary knife , hell no ! ( But that's just me )

To the rope slice = a 100 slice fail !
That is a disappointing result , even for a factory edge !
Speaking off , = , was not that flash , even though well polished ! ( looks VS performance )

I just spent the better part ( and then some ) of an hour resharpening the knife ..
Right at the point where the knife refused to slice paper , was a bit of a lump of steel ( thickening of the bevel )
It took a long time to clean up that lump of metal till I got a nice even bur happening ..
Then I had to clean the bur , and strop till I dropped and could no longer force a bur ..
Scandi Life !

Did I talk about the lump on the bevel ? I think I did ..
So , after having being re sharpened and the bevel corrected .
I got a slight increase in performance . A 350 fail .
Hmmm , 350 VS 100 .. Yeah , ill take the 350 .
