I like the looks of the handle, it does seem comfortable. What about the rhombic pattern, is it perceptible?

Sometimes the pattern on my Bahco can be annoying  :-\ but they are made differently and out of different materials  :)

They are becoming available all over now. I just got a mail the other day that Lamnia has them in stock as well.

Im liking my Garberg more and more. They have obviously put a lot of thought into the thickness of the blade. "Survival" knives tend to have very thick blades, sometimes too thick for finer wood work. The Garberg seems to have found a middle ground, thick enough to be strong, but not so thick that it cant do finer cutting.

I really do like everything about this knife. Well, as much as I can without actually having one. One day maybe. :)

Sorry.  I have a leather sheath one coming. The prime 2 day shipping one sold out fast. Mine will be here in 7-10 days.

Not that I could get one but they're on sale in the UK for £97 with the multi mount sheath or £109 with the leather sheath.

Passed all the tests.....but, whacking a zero edge grind edge against a brick....what did he expect. Put a nice micro bevel on it and the edge will be much tougher and more resistant to rolling/chipping.

Looks lovely! The grease might have been left on thr knife by purpose, in order to protect it from humidity etc while it sits on the shelf.

And those difficult to write/pronounce Scandanavian names have a mysterious beauty in them. :think: :tu:

I wonder if it would pass the old tests that Noss used to do

To be fair he destroyed almost everything. I think that 4 knives survived his testing and 2 of those were Bussekin with over 0.25" spines. The other 2 would then be some Cold steel machete and I believe there was some Cheaper than dirt knife that went for around $9, but I could be mistaken

I've been telling people about that old YouTube where the guy stood on his Old Mora classic and all it did was put a slight bend in it.... Could never find the tube again so I looked like a nut job!!  :rofl:

Was really glad one Mora passed the "stand on" test!   :facepalm:
