Default New Mora Knife the Pathfinder



Advertise Here

Mora Knives introduced a new knife this week called the Pathfinder at the SHOT Show.

Take a look at our video, what do you think?

Looks like Mora has some good gear coming out. A bit steep on the price tag for the pathfinder. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for sharing sir. The pathfinder looks neat but the price is way to much. Even with that tactical sheath.

Wish Mora would make a line of knives with full tang and a lanyard hole.

I like the idea of the Pathfinder, but have to echo what others have said so far. Mora's reputation is based on affordable performance, and I feel like there's a threshold beyond which Mora no longer represents the best value. The hatchet, on the other hand, definitely seems like a good product for the money.

(Who am I kidding? I'll probably end up getting a Pathfinder anyway.)

The knife I can do without. The hatchet looks like it will find its way in my collection.

The regular Moras are basically just utility knives. All they did with the Pathfinder was add 2 more inches. Reminds me of that add for penis enlargement pills..."What would you do with 2 more inches?"

They've not done anything to fundamentally change the knife other than increase the length. Even the handles are the same. Essentially they've just stretched the blade and the price.

Not sure I like Mora and Tactical in the same sentence... but hey, if it works... why not? 108$ will be MSRP though, count on 60$-ish at most online retailers. Still high, but not that high.

Nice knife. I want to see someone lay it open. I'd like to see the tang.

I just got a mora companion hd last week for 15 bucks. I really like it for a cheap knives I can afford. But I don't see how this pathfinder is much bbetter for the cost.

That demonstrator seemed like he wanted to remove the knife from the sheath (last knife) but he struggled. I wanted to see that one. That PATHFINDER didn't do anything for me but the hatchet looks promising. I don't like the black coating on those knives. MORA'S going tactical but Esee is going bushcraft....

Ill pass - too many other good knives in the same price range. They are now outside of their "best bang for the buck market" - just too much competition.
