Awhile ago I was looking at Scandi tool company sites to see what they sell besides Moras. Saw Bahco makes wrecking knives in two versions, one straight like a chisel, and the other curved. So I bought both.

Two wrecking knives, Mora, Hultafors.

Image

Note the nice shiny unused Mora with tiny serrations.

Image

The wrecking knives are 4mm thick. On the website they have pics of hitting them on the spine with a metal hammer. I tried that a few times in the backyard today.

Some nice Hultafors and Bahco scandi grinds.

Was sharpening some broken garden stakes. Sliced, sawed and whittled real easy. I preferred the curved one as you can push cut and use the curved bit. Found I could use two hands to help with precision work (as long as you've got a good grip/clamp on what you're working on).
The handles were fine, but I wouldn't use them to fight off a grizzly/moose/hippo.

Note, now I finally have a Mora. I like my Hultafors handles just a little more. The thumb ramp on the scabbard is a little higher too which makes it easier to quickdraw.

as you said, that look like one heck of a heavy duty knife.

It just peeled the wood off, which makes me think it would be good for bushcraft.
The good thing about it being a 'tool' rather than a safe queen is you have no qualms using it.

I know I can look them up (and I will) but what are the prices of those? I'm interested in these.

I was actually gonna be putting in an order for a few more moras in the next couple of days, but these have really grabbed my attention.

Round about $35 for the straight one to $45 for the curved (incl p&p). I got one in Australia and one from the UK.

Hultafors also make a chisel knife, but it looks to be more Mora like in thickness (I haven't got one):

Looks to me that SNAPON distributes them in the U.S. I don't know how that works.

Looks like they had some surplus chisels and just ground them down into knives.

These are made like that. Popular amongst the guys in the building industry.

Generally BAHCO make quality products for a fair price, and I prefer to buy their products over others. (The exception is pliers, there I buy KNIPEX).

I've seen then around before, looks like a pretty useful work knife.

It's that smug, superior attitude of theirs, strutting around in their fancy outfits like they're better than everyone else. Yeah, burn in hell, you snobbish bird bastards.

And don't get me started on pandas!
