I got my Mora 106 this afternoon. It makes the Flexcut knife that I have look like a butter knife. It has a nice long thin blade. A better balanced handle and it seems to do a really nice job. I carved a spoon tonight with it. A little short one. It did well. I need to sharpen it, though. I read this article about sharpening this particular knife. The biggest issue is not rolling the blade edge when stropping it. I need to do some more research before I sharpen it for the first time.
I also sanded my spoons that had dried tonight. They are ready for oil now and I will post my thoughts on that tomorrow after I get it done. I am using Flax Oil. It cures, it is food safe, and it is a very common oil for wooden bowls and spoons. Most organic oils do well, Olive Oil is no good though..it won't cure. It ends up either going rancid or just becomes this sort of sticky film on the outside of the spoons. Anyway, here is the latest picture of the spoon pile.
