The Cold Steel Finn Bear is a good Stainless Steel alternative to High Carbon Steel Mora Knives.
BLADE- the 4116 steel can be made razor sharp in a matter of minutes, but it is a soft budget steel, meaning it will dull quickly. Very rust resistant. It is great at cutting, carving, and slicing. It is only a partial tang.
HANDLE- the thermal plastic handle is unique and offers medium traction, but is comfortable for extended used when carving.
SHEATH- the heavy duty nylon sheath is well built and holds the knife well.
CONCLUSION- for $15 this knife can't be passed up. Extremely lightweight, and rust resistant. As a side note, the Mora Classic 1 knife is the same price and it is made in Sweden and is full tang. That is a great knife as well for camp/bushcraft.
