If you like Mora try a Hultafors HD, The Mora on steroids. Sorry if this is hijacking bdpf79, I have looked at the CH knives but have not pulled the trigger yet on one. My users are the inexpensive knives like the Mora but the pricier toys are for admiring and 'flick therapy'. FT can be a dangerous place for those with a bad pointy thing addiction!

No problem.
If you want an inexpensive folder that also serves as "flicking therapy", I would strongly suggest you having a look at the Sanrenmu 910, 9013, 9014.
IMO, the best knives one can buy below $20.

You mean the Land 9103 and 9104 right? They are great. Very well made and look stunning.

All their knives here are frame locks.
In some of the pics, you don't see the lock because the pics are taken from AliEx.
A lot of sellers there photoshop the locks or else their listings gets removed, some kind of BS rule of the site.
All the models I own can easily be opened/closed one hand.
As for operating with gloves, that would depend on the size of the knife and the size of your hand, it being harder on the smaller knives with large hands.
I prefer larger knives so the 3 that I own, I can use them with gloves no problem.




Thank You. Very helpful answer. My folders currently consist of a Ken Onion custom, the obligatory Benchmade Contego, a old Cold Steel Carbon V Gunsite Tanto and a highly modded Spyderco Mk1 Police.

I love Moras! huge bang for buck. Even the hideous plastic sheaths become useful if you put a ball chain through the drain hole at the bottom of them..

I wish there were more high carbon blades, and less stainless being offered. I'm not worried about rust, and the ability to hold an edge without needing diamonds to re sharpen like the super steels require endears them to me. I know a chef who is always on the hunt for high carbon blades too.

I been looking at knives lately, but they always get removed from the cart. Keep finding nicer ones I'd rather have, don't wanna settle, then in the end don't wanna fork over 140$.

Wouldn't mind a more nimble knife that could pass as a steak knife, yknow, cus restaurants steak knives are always dull and I don't wanna bust out something bulky.

I guess for a steak knife I'd probably get the Boker Urban Trapper or the Zieba G-2 clone.

Or the "Piston" knife on Aliex.
Or if you want to stick to what they have here and don't mind non-locking blades, you can have a look at the Sanrenmu M1 (very nice)
