My dad's Swedish Mora knife from 1957

This knife was gifted to my dad , by his father, on my dad's tenth birthday - in 1957

 

Having recently retired my dad has taken up bushcraft as a hobby, thus wishing to bring his trusty old knife out of retirement.

Unfortunally time has taken it's toll on this knife, leaving the blade loose in the handle and the scabbard missing quite a few stitches - but the blade is still sharp as ever.

I offered my dad to trade his old knife for a new one - and after some persuasion he, reluctantly, agreed to part with this his lifetime companion - trading it for a Karesuando Moose Special
