Big Sorry - Video lacks audio !
Factory Edge returned some 50 slices on the rope .
Factory edge was Fubar !
Don't know who ground the edge , but a seriously poor effort .
The edge snakes and has dips or valleys ..
So I put it on the Wet Stone Grinder ( included a little video of me grinding a new edge - in the video )
Still not 100% , cos the factory edge was FUBAR .
I ground off as much steel as I dare ( Years of use ) , but still bad ju ju left behind .
Anyways , ground edge returned some 300 slices of rope .. And suddenly stopped .
Stropping the edge - There was a fair bit of crunching - Did the edge develop a micro roll ?
Didn't take much strop to restore the edge .. Was it burrish ? / did it maybe roll a bur ? hmmm ...
I may have to revisit this knife .. ( revisit the rope )
Sheath is from a Sydney seller .. ( ? if he makes them - as I have seen a very similar sheath sold in Russia ) = Great minds think alike ?
Anyways , for a Mora but fits the Puukko just fine if not a little tight = Better than lose .
They call this knife a Garberg Killer (?) , yeah , I'm not buying a Overpriced Garberg unless I win the lottery or something .
Butt ! Is it that good , to be called a Garberg killer ?
A) Comfortable to hold
B) Fits a Mora Sheath
C) Not super expensive if ordered direct
D) Value for money - For now I would call it average .
E) Factory edge was poor / poorly ground and performed poorly
F) For a first knife or for Noobs - Not recommended !
If your a collector , if you have to have one and you know how to put down a edge - Sure , go for it !
But dont expect this to be like a Mora - Out of the box performance .
I saw a Mora for $25 + Free shipping , so had to order it .
I have Mora's going back to the 70's . so plan on doing a Mora Shoot Out .
Old VS New
Micro bevel VS SCandi
SS VS Carbon
Something like that ...
