5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Bushcraft Knife Nov. 17 2012
By VercingetorixBushcrafter - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The knife arrived quite promptly (from Harry J Epstein Co.)- a day before the earliest predicted arrival date, in fact. :)
For those who do not know, this knife, the Mora 860 ("Companion" series) MG heavy duty carbon steel, is an improved version of the Mora 840 models ("Clipper" series). The main difference is that Companion blades have a significantly longer tang. You can google images search the difference in the tang between the Clipper and Companion. I prefer the improved tang because it makes me feel more comfortable using it, and it will hold up better to rough use.
The sheath is plain and simple, nothing super fancy, though it is quite durable. If you prefer a leather sheath, you can either make one yourself or buy one online (I recommend bensbackwoods[dot]com though there are many others you can choose from). Like the Clipper's sheath, it comes with a sturdy belt clip, so it is easy to put on and take off.

The knife itself is Scandinavian grind and has a 3.2mm thick blade at 4.09 inches long, and an overall length of 8.86 inches with a blade width of a hair over 3/4 of an inch. It has a comfortable rubber handle which won't slip out of your hands easily.
The Companion also comes in stainless steel (Companion F, Companion F Rescue, Companion F serrated, and Companion MG, though none have the more robust 3.2mm thick blade), if you so prefer. I personally like the carbon steel because it can be sharpened in the field and will hold a better edge - Mora's carbon steel knives are hardened to 59-60 Rc, as opposed to 57-58 Rc with their stainless steel (Sandvik) blades.
The knife arrived very sharp and ready for use.

The Companion is a joy to work with, being very effective at chopping and carving green wood - it is also very handy at splitting dead wood, and making feathersticks was easily accomplished. You will find this knife much more capable of batoning than the Mora 2000 and other profile-ground blades, which have a tapered front (meaning the blade thins out towards the point), making chopping and splitting difficult.

I can find only one drawback - the back of the knife is not squared-off enough to make it very effective with a firesteel. I wouldn't recommend using the edge of the knife for this purpose, as it will cause the blade to become blunt.
If you are prone to placing your knife and-or sheath down somewhere and forgetting where you put it, you might want to opt for the Companion heavy duty that comes in orange - it is much easier to spot.

This is an excellent bushcraft knife of high quality and low price. It can tackle a wide variety of tasks with ease and never ceases to impress me. The Companion heavy duty is clear proof that you don't need to spend over $70 for a superb bushcraft knife.
Thank you Mora ;).

**UPDATE** late July, 2013 - I have been using this knife for over half a year, and it is holding up quite well to regular bush tasks. I have only needed to sharpen it a few times with a fine stone followed by stropping. I also put a forced patina on the blade to give it a rustic look ;).
One thing I failed to mention before was that the handle (121mm long, or approximately 4.76 inches) is a little big for people with normal/average-sized hands, yet the knife is still comfortable to hold and not at all cumbersome. This is an advantage in winter, as a slightly larger handle makes it easier to use the knife when wearing gloves or mittens.

4.0 out of 5 stars It takes some work, but still worth the money Feb. 7 2013
By Sean - Published on Amazon.com

Lets start with the bad.

I don't know why they decided the handle needs to be any bigger than the one on the regular Companion. Mora handles are already somewhat large and this one is the largest of the three I own (Classic, Companion and this). It's not unusable. Lets just say it's got a lot of meat to grab onto. I'm sure that's the point. But again, unnecessary compared to the home run they hit with the regular Companion handle. And just fyi, I'm a fairly large guy. 6' 200 lbs.

Mora blades are a mixed bag. Some come with a nice sharp spine. Some come more "finished." Most of us Mora users prefer the sharp spine so we can strike our fire rods, but with this one I couldn't. Some even come razor sharp out of the box. Mine didn't. The point here is, when you get your Mora there might be a little work involved to get exactly what you expected. For me it was about an hour to get a razor edge and a striking spine.

Now onto the good.

This thing wants to be put to work. The blade is satisfyingly thick and holds its edge rather well. I don't baton my Moras, but I do a fair amount of wood work with them. To be honest, the thinner blade on the regular companion is better for general wood work. Whittling and such. But the heavy duty blade definitely makes me feel more confident. I feel like I can shove this thing anywhere and not worry about snapping it.

People on here seem to not like the plastic sheaths. But I love them. It partly has to do with what I said above. It looks like it's ready to be put to work. It's not some tactical day dreamer's knife. You aren't going to fulfill any fantasies of fighting bears or terrorists with this thing. It's for making fire. For crafting. For work. And it does its job damn well. I've never had a Mora sheath fail on me. And I love the fact I can put the knife where I want without ever having to undo a belt. If you're going on a hike/hunt/camping trip, I would even say the Heavy Duty Companion is still light enough to wear around the neck.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Mora so far Nov. 26 2012
By Dan - Published on Amazon.com

This is an absolute beauty of a MoraKniv. I own several other Mora's to include a couple Companion MGs and the hefty HQ Robust. This new Heavy duty companion is my new favorite. I didn't care much for the grey handle and sheath of the Robust but I wanted a thicker bladed Mora. Enter this new companion in Military Green(MG). It has a great handle, scary sharp carbon steel blade right out of the box. I like the sheath its simple and it works well, I have never had a problem with them. The blade is nice and thick but one of the things I noticed that was different then other carbon steel Moras is the spine is smooth finished. This is a really nice touch that also sets this new Mora apart, typically every carbon bladed Mora has a rough unfinished spine, and the stainless steel ones have smooth finished spines. This is a great buy and at a great price. Prompt service from the Harry J Epstein CO. (second purchase from them).

5.0 out of 5 stars Mora Surprised Me! March 30 2013
By Robert - Published on Amazon.com

I have heard a lot about Mora knives but never thought they were as good as the "hype" they were given. I was expecting paring knife thin blades and chinsy handles. BOY, WAS I WRONG!!!!
If the rest of the line is like this one, I will soon be owning a few more of them.
The knife is impressive as soon as you take it out. Strong, solid, not a loose or wimpy part in its whole construction. Sharp right out the sheath, positive sure grip handle, the blade is thick, strong and well made. The sheath has a sure lock grip on the knife when you insert it into the sheath, keeping it secure and tight. The blade is sharp and ready to use.

Mora Knives, I will never doubt you again. I am a customer for life!!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Mora Jan. 23 2013
By David - Published on Amazon.com

Excellent knife, especially for the price. Like all Mora's it comes razor sharp, and ready to do. This version has a blade thick enough to allow you to do some serious batoning (splitting firewood with a knife) and other bushcraft work. It is so light that you can carry it as an accessory to a designated hunting knife or larger survival knife. The scandi grind on the Mora knives makes them the easiest thing to sharpen in the field. I used this knife snowshoeing and it was more then up to the task, even with winter gloves on. Although the orange color is not tough or tactical looking, it is super bright, making the knife almost impossible to lose when dropped.
