This is an AWESOME knife. I owned the Mora Robust and it is a great knife for the price but this knife has a waaaaaay more comfortable handle. Not that it's a serious issue on the Mora but the tang goes further in the handle of the OK4. It's like 75% tang vs the Mora's like 50% tang. Both are extremely though knives. I also like the sheath better than the Mora's. The Mora sheath feels like it will let the knife slip out even though it never has. the OK4 sheath gives you confidence it will stay put. The blade doesn't rust near as fast as the Mora, although you should always take care of your blades. I can see the black coating coming off as this knife gets more use, opening it up to rusting, but if you take care of it, it should last you a really long time. it also has a spine that you can strike a ferro rod with and the Mora does not. Both are great knives at their price points. This one is a steal even at $30
