Because the sheath covers more than half the handle and locks the knife via simple friction, the little Mora makes a dandy neck knife. The blade is skinny and lacks a handguard, and the overall profile of the knife is very slim, so despite its 4” blade, the Mora tucks away under most any cover garment.
A neck knife makes a lot of sense in cold climates, where it’s easier to reach down your cover garment than to dig through multiple layers of clothing to get to your belt knife. It’s also fully ambidextrous—you can reach the knife equally well with either hand. Lastly, it’s fast to deploy even with gloves—you don’t need to undo snaps or work a mechanism to get the blade ready for use.
Take a $15 Mora, some Gorilla tape, and a length of paracord with a knot on either end, and you have an inexpensive, tough, versatile, sharp and easy to maintain fixed blade utility knife that’s a breeze to carry.
