Default Wahoo killers Mora style without the Scandi grind

An old thread came up a few days ago about these Mora style wahoo killer knives. I have several Moras and these Wahoo Killers lookvery similar to a Mora. These are stainless and not carbon, supposedly AUS-6. The thread was talking about 3 of them for $5. Got me interested in buying a bunch as gifts and just to have some for toss arounds for the house. So BudK has them for $1.99 and a two pack with a longer blade style (more like a fillet knife) for $5.99. $39 order you get free shipping (now it is flat rate shipping of $4.99 no min). So I got 15 of them (two are the longer style) and another little toy to make up the difference. Could have bought up to 20 knives for $39.

This is an interesting review from Amazon
Amazon.com : Wahoo Killer Fillet Knife : Fishing... cover
Amazon.com : Wahoo Killer Fillet Knife : Fishing..."The Good:
Looks like a Mora Knife, and grips like one. Blade is AUS-6 Stainless Steel which is a bit better than 440A.
The Sheath looks like a Mora with a water drain hole on the bottom.
There is also an OD Green model called "Delta Defender", same knife differn't color.
Single knife, it cheaper by a few dollars. There are also 3 packs around, if you can find them.
There are a few posts on some web sites, that guys claim that this knife handles well in the woods and other rough areas.

What to look for before you buy:
No Scandi grind, the grind on this knife is an "Asymmetrical grind". It is interesting. One side you have a "Hollow Compound bevel". On the other side you have just a regular "Compound Bevel". Scandi grind is easier to sharpen, as you sharpen it almost flat, and is better for working with wood. That's why bushcrafters \ survivalist like it so much. There is nothing wrong with the "Asymmetrical grind" that is on the Wahoo Killer knife. You "can" re-profile the blade. I have done it, with only a flat metal file and a medium and fine grit sharpening stone. However, it still does not "look right" because of the hollow grind side, and also when you get down a layer of metal, you see the "vertical" grain of the metal.. but again.. you can do it. It may be a good lesson for some of the younger guys out there just to try it, "if" you don't mind the possibly of making a mistake and ruining the blade 100%. Just beware of that."
