In my ongoing quest to find the ultimate fixed-blade backpacking knife that is sturdy, lightweight, and cheap, I recently got a Mora Clipper 840 on eBay for a steal. Compared to the Mora Classic knife I recently reviewed, I find this to be a better knife for about the same money.
While the Mora Classic certainly has its charm with the wooden handle, I find the non-slip grip of the Clipper to be more practical. It has a similar carbon steel blade that is easier to sharpen in the field with a smooth river stone (as well as with a proper sharpening stone) thanks to the Scandinavian grind, but with a more modern handle that includes a finger guard. Like the Classic, the sheath leaves a little to be desired but it's still a great value for the price. Unlike the patina I tried to force upon my Classic Mora with mustard, I think I will let this one acquire a natural patina and see how it goes. Any other Clipper users out there?
