    Better for what? I think you're over-thinking this (can't believe I just said that! )

    There's probably a bigger difference between the carbon and stainless versions of the Craftsman and the Clipper than between the two styles.
    What kind of handle do you like? Soft=Clipper; hard=Craftsman.

    Check this page for a run through some of the Mora range, including the models you're discussing (near the bottom).

    Re: mora clipper vs mora craftsman

    I've used a lot of Moras over the years as they were issued as deck knives and work knives in my day job.

    My own, that I bought in 1979, is an S2. It has a laminated carbon blade and is a seriously useful knife that can cut a 2" sapling with two or sometimes even one cut!. The red birch handles used to be standard but have largely been superseded by the modern polymers.

    I eventually re-handled it and made it a scandie leather sheath for it's 25th anniversary

    I have a Mora 2000 that is a better slicer through being thinner, but not so good for woodcarving.


    The last work knife I was given was a carbon steel hard handled #510. I thought they were taking the Mickey! Turns out it's a good little blade and I now use it for rabbits on a near daily basis. It holds an edge with no chipping despite regularly jointing bunnies.


    The Mora range are just "no-nonsense" tools that all work. At their prices you can try a couple at a time -and then wonder why we ever spend any more.

    Maybe they weren't bothered either way!

    Seriously, look at this picture:



    They're the same blade, different shaped handle and handle material.

    It'll come down to what you find most comfy.

    I got one of those recently for the same job.
    Shorter than my other's and all the better for it.

    These are some of mine



    Plastic sheath is always crap but the knives are great.


    Doesn't really matter what one you buy, they are all a bargain.

    Re: mora clipper vs mora craftsman

    As everybody else has said, there's only personal preference in it, they are all superb knives..I just prefer the craftsman simply because it fits my hand better, but even then it sometimes gets the hump taken off..

    If we're not supposed to eat animals, why are they made out of meat?
