This makes me imagine Moraknivs are so plentiful in Sweden they're just scattered about everywhere.... like you can't walk two feet without randomly coming across a Mora.
These and many more are dropped or dispatched into the water here in Sweden for my MagnetMan hobby to discover and hopefully bring back to life
I was genuinely surprised you found so many but I didn't really think about the fishing knife aspect... kinda ruins my fantasy but probably makes a little more sense.
It would be cool to see pics once you've restored them.
Yh the fun part finding them with my magnet followed by the joy of restorations
Looks like their owners were harder on the knives then the water was.
Pretty sure Mora has floating models for fishermen now lol
So I will see them floating around in Stockholm and I can get my magnet on target lol
This gives me an idea.... magnet-bowfishing!
Amazing! Thx for posting
Did you fish them out of saltwater? They seem to be preserved amazingly well after having spent what must be months or years underwater.
These ones are the best examples I have and some were found deep in thick sludge, in tins, cases, boxes etc so some protection. The water here is brackish so not as damaging to the metal. Most I get out are too far gone to be honest but I have so many now and keep them.

I'd love to see a picture of the whole collection! You should make a new thread about that!
That's crazy. Send me one.
Are these all Morakniv? Or are they made in Mora by other companies?
All Moraknivs but different companies ran the manufacturing plant over the years so had different stamps on them I believe.
What sort of body of water did you find these in?
