I have several Mora's and I am very satisfied with their performance.

Need some advise.

Specific to the Mora 840 clipper, does the tang extend the full length of the handle?

Thanks,

Blake

The Clipper's tang is pretty short, about halfway into the handle. There are other models with a longer 3/4th length tang.

If you go to google images and query "Mora 840 clipper tang" (no quotes) there are some x-ray pics.

Frankly I'm surprised they didn't go with a full length tang with the Robust (even if just a rat tail) to silence people's concerns about blade thickness and tang strength in one fell swoop. Mora's are apparently well regarded even without a full tang though.

Ragweed Forge has discontinued shipping out of the US due to an increasing backlog of orders and also the exchange costs/procedures. Too bad, I liked doing business with him. I will have to find another dealer.

Sad to hear that. I was hoping to place an order. He had the best prices around. I guess that meant modest margins, though. Can't blame him for keeping focus on his primary market.
