I can tell you that when drilling a thong or pin hole in a knife handle is it a real good idea to clamp the blade, or clamp a stop block in place. If you don't, you can have a nice sharp knife spinning around at a zillon rpm's, then flying off and sticking in whatever it happens to end up coming in contact with. Luckily not me...

OBG...please say "lanyard" instead of "thong" (he said shuttering) crazy
Somehow creating a hole on a knife so that it could be worn on thong is a very disturbing image. sick

Wasn't that giant bolo knife from another thread was it?!?!

There would be no getting away from it.

I don't think so. I think for almost all of them, the tang extends the full length of the knife, but it loses a lot of width for the steel, thereby losing strength. For the price, they are still worth it, but the Mora knives are not prybars. I've seen stories of someone being able to imbed some in a tree and use them as a ladder, but I don't want to test them in that way with my 220 lbs.

Yup... just found it and it looks like a good camp knife. For the price you can't go wrong. Not a fan of the sheath it comes with, so will need a custom one done which will be more then the knife.
