Some months back, I heard there will be a new Mora knife distributor in Malaysia. I had mixed feelings about it. Distribution of any sort of outdoor adventure gear in Malaysia has never been in favor of end user because of the multi-tiered profiteering by the distributor and re-sellers. And now it looks like Mora knives in Malaysia will suffer the same fate.
So, I was given the Mora Eldris by the Mora representative when I last met him. Despite the usual work and travel, I still manage to squeeze in an overnight jungle trip to test out the knife (and other bits of gear too!). I am never a big fan of small (2″ cutting edge or less) or folding knives but am always open to give it a go. So, here is my take on the Mora Eldris.
I got an email invitation to meet the official representative of Mora knives in Malaysia recently. Thinking it was a prank email, I had to double read the email address of the sender. It actually had a ‘@morakniv.se’ extension. That intrigue me a lot. So, a few weeks later, we met up over a cup of coffee.
