“My first knife was this Mora Scout (see pic). I remember the moment well. I was 5 years old at the time and I was on a trip to Sweden with my father, my uncle and my cousin. My father had promised me that once I had learned and proved that I could use a knife safely, I would get my very own knife. But he had not told me it would happen on that day. At a booth in Strømstad my father picked up the Mora Scout and examined it. I still remember how my heart started beating faster when I understood that it might be for me. When he finally paid for it and told me it was mine, I was over my self with joy. It is one of my strongest childhood memories.
That Scout followed me on many small adventures in the forests close to where we lived and on camping trips with my father, making many fond memories along the way. Now I have a 4 year old son, and he doesn’t know it yet, but I have a brand new Mora Scout waiting for him hidden away in a cupboard, ready for new adventures.”
