Micah Barron: am i the only one who noticed he said 8 ounces for length instead of 8
Joe Hammon: Ya Krik I was wondering why you say " Later turtles" at the end of your
videos.....Sorry for taking so long to reply....I barely noticed the
message in my inbox.....kinda stupid I guess 5 months later.
sudsmeister: Nice review. Need to get one too! Mora is getting the traction it needs
plus all knife companies should take heed of its type of prices too.
ANDY SUMAC: Great video . I've had one for awhile and really like it . I've not been
gentle with it and its holding up . And for the cash you can't beat em .
Caden Chandler: I like you guys because you guys actually know what your talking about Caden
BlackOwlOutdoors: Thanks for subscribing! I feel their performance is pretty much the same.
The real difference is the DLC coating of the black and the black can throw
sparks with a ferrocerium rod. If you have any more questions, let me know.
FlatlanderIA: Great review on this Heavy Duty and the Black from Mora! Which of these do
you prefer overall? Have you noticed any difference in cutting or
battoning ability between them? How about firesteel striking? Thank you!
I'm a new subscriber!
Connor Moryn: what camera do you use?
BlackOwlOutdoors: haha. yup you heard correctly. krik misspoke. thanks for watching.
BlackOwlOutdoors: We're glad you like our videos. Thanks for watching Joe. Are you asking why
I say turtles? -Krik
sj mn: Great shots, finally an outdoor channel with great quality videos.
BlackOwlOutdoors: What would you like to know about the knife that I didn't say in the video?
How can I help? -Krik
BlackOwlOutdoors: thanks mika. we shoot on a canon 7d. it is a great piece of equipment. -
NorthSurvival: Great video, i love mora knives and i have many, that mora companion heavy
duty looks like a very sharp and good knife for bushcraft. I am also into
bushcraft and survival and i have some videos on my channel about it. Again
great video. PS you just got another subscriber. Greetings from Sweden.
Rob Davis: When you finally manage to dull your Mora, just use wet/dry 3M
1000/3000/6000 grit sandpaper progressively, glued to blocks of flat wood
with double-sticky Carpet tape. Try to follow the original Scandi grind,
but if you get into old knife sharpening habits it probably won't hurt and
might even put on a "Scandivex" grind, which is pretty much what a genuine
Betmen: Yes I did. I have Companion F but I don't know how to explain it, it just
doesn't feel right. Thicker blade feels much better.
BlackOwlOutdoors: A bit of a downside? I wouldn't say that. Carbon steel does require
different care than other alloys. It's important to know how to care for
you knives whatever their type of steel. For the price and quality of the
Mora, the carbon steel is not even a factor in my mind. But Mora does offer
stainless knives as well if you'd want that. -Krik
BlackOwlOutdoors: it's all preference. we dig the look. thanks for watching. - Stony
n8SWAG: I currently use my zt 0350 every day. I might get a buck 11.9. We'lll see.
I love your camera!
BlackOwlOutdoors: YT doesn't allow it. I guess to keep spam down or something. Is it on your
BlackOwlOutdoors: That's great Grayson. It's funny you should mention throwing sparks with
the knife's spine. Have you checked out our newest reviews?? They might
interest you. -Krik
usernamemykel: "Widdle"? Oh, bright eyes meant to say "whittle".
BlackOwlOutdoors: thanks north for watching. and i love the mora companion heavy duty. it
just feels so much more robust than the regular companion. i'll check out
your videos then. right now i'm at work and don't have time. thanks for
watching and stay tuned for some more videos.
BlackOwlOutdoors: I got that sweater probably ten years at a Gap. I saw the sweater and I
liked its features. I wouldn't really say Gap has the type of clothes I'd
want. But they did with this particular sweater. Finding an affordable,
quality wool sweater is not an easy thing to do. -Krik
BlackOwlOutdoors: Thanks a lot Seba and keep watching! -Krik
Turtle girl: which one do you like better? tje heavy duty or just the regular
BlackOwlOutdoors: Hey no problem at all. Let me know how the Companion works out for you. We
have referral links on our blog to help us generate some coin so we can
continue to offer relevant product reviews. Blackowloutdoors dot blogspot
dot com -Krik
Caden Chandler: You Guys also have very good filming caden
Seba Walczak: Good job Bro! Thank You.
BlackOwlOutdoors: That makes sense. I hope you find the knife you're looking for. I'm certain
it is out there, even if it's not a Mora. I agree though, the extra
thickness will make a difference. Have you tried using a Mora with a
thickness of 2.5mm for work? -Krik
snowpuppy77: Appreciate the reply. I really do not do any more detailed work than
feather stick and the like so the HD would probably be fine. However I do
know that a thinner blade is often better for food prep like cutting apples
or raw potatoes. I order the regular because of this and the Amazon price
is up higher than normal on the HD. I may get the HD later or the black one
your reviewed if I like the companion. If I like it I will want more than
one especially at those great prices.
BlackOwlOutdoors: Thanks for subscribing n8. Let me know how this knife works out for you if
you buy it. Which knife do you currently use the most? My Moras definitely
get the most frequent use. -Krik
BlackOwlOutdoors: The extra thickness and larger handle of the Heavy Duty does not really
inhibit detailed work compared to the regular Companion. For really
detailed work a smaller would be better than either. How detailed are you
talking about? -Krik
n8SWAG: Great review! Subbed. Looking to get this.
BlackOwlOutdoors: I am a huge fan of the Scandi grind as well. Thanks for the comment. Do you
have any vids of you sharpening a knife with said grit?-Krik
snowpuppy77: Which do you prefer between the MG Companion and the MC Heavy Duty
Companion? Does the Heavy Duty with thicker blade and handle diminish
dexterity in detail work vs. the regular Companion? Thank you.
Betmen: Mora needs to make this in stainless
seng0w4: Krik, where'd u get that green sweater?
Cale Canter: Can you by chance make a video of what you guys usually carry in your kits,
as well as your standard camp set up? You guys make awesome videos, would
love to see one that's all inclusive.
Roger Liu: The visual quality of your video is like of movie standard....
Phillip Delaney: If you look at the inside construction... I mean i KNOW the companion is in
act a mora but i just would not trust the tiny bit of metal hidden in the
rubber. It is not the whole "it isn't full tang" that gets me. It is just
TINY. In the heavy duty, although still not full tang, i would trust
handling situations more stressful. For the extra maybe like 6 bucks,
DEFINITELY go for the heavy duty. If you don't believe me, go on their
website and look at the 'x-ray' picture.
Betmen: Well, I prefer stainless because I am a constuction worker and sometimes
don't have time to clean and maintain my knife. There is a big difference
between 2,5mm thick blade and 3,2 and in my job more robust knife is
better. That's why I would love to have a Robust or Heavy Duty companion in
BlackOwlOutdoors: I'm not certain how they choose which knives are available in stainless as
well as carbon steel. Do you prefer stainless over carbon steel?. -Krik
BlackOwlOutdoors: I think you will be pleased with the knife. Let me know your impressions of
it. We have more knife reviews on the way. -Krik
Ontario Northerner: wow it can widdle a stick, u offered practically no insight
screwloose455: Also the aperture you're using seems a little low.
BlackOwlOutdoors: cale, we were actually just talking about that. now that we have a base
line for the most the gear we carry, we are gonna start doing more all
encompassing videos. not just ones where we show what's in the kit, but
one's where we show us using our kit, whether camping, hiking, or
adventuring. thanks for watching. and stay tuned. we have a lot in store. -
smackbitches123: you have really good camera quality. Makes me enjoy your videos even more.
Joe Hammon: Usually at the end of all your videos Krik uses the term "later turtles" or
"stay safe turtles" in this video. This may sound ridiculous but I've never
heard the term before so I was wondering if you would comment on what it
means. Thanks Stony and Krik I love your videos.
