Nice... I have a few that I use for carving, not that fancy though. They do feel good in the hand though, simple well thought out designs.

Mora's are nice, and fancy ones that are hand made are even nicer.

They mentioned puukko's, pardon my ignorance but I thought the first puukkos were actually almost a short sword?  Fingertip to elbow long and used for everything, including social events with people you didn't particularly like?  And you carried a mora for things like eating and whittling and in case your puukko jammed.   Huh?






(That would be jammed in his little pointy head and he still has some friends and relatives coming after you.)

Puukko is a type of knife
