Mora Classic #2 mods
by Sam MacDavid · Wed Dec 26, 2012 15:46 PM

So I got a Mora classic #2 a while ago. But I haven't brought it out with me too much because of the poor retention of the sheath. I know alot of people use this as a neck knife (cody lundin), but i don't really like neck knife style. I put the sheath on my belt but the knife falls out after moving around and sitting down. The last time I brought it out I had an empty sheath on my belt because it fell out in my seat on the drive there. So I added a snap to the top end with a small wood screw into the handle and put the other end of the snap on some webbing onto the sheath. The snap placement hasen't seemed to effect my grip on the knife. I originally tried to glue the strap to the sheath with a hybrid polyurethane/super glue (loctites go-2-glue) which just peeled right off the plastic sheath. Then I tried an epoxy which also peeled right off. So in the end I just wrapped it with electical tape. I did the whole thing to give me some extra electrical tape if I needed it for some reason, no quite as useful as duct tape, but pretty useful. Anyway just wanted to share, let me know what you think.

If u heat the sheath with a heat gun or some boiling water u can reshape the. Collar to increase the tention

I hardly notice it. I thought about that and put it up on the far end of the handle to try and not interfer with my grip. I havent used it much yet though. I'll write back when i get to take it out for a weekend.

Nice, that looks like a real bushcraft knife. What did you do to the blade to get the blackend swirls look?
