Default Moore Maker Knives

Does anyone know a place in Katy area that carries Moore Maker?

Sorry I don't know anyone around you.

How can a $50-60 knife be overrated?

I am pretty sure I ordered mine off the internet.

And I have to agree with Javelin. I hear the old ones were good, but the two that I bought are no good. I like Case knives way way better.

I have one that will go dull sitting in my pocket never being used. It definitely won't hold an edge like a case, eye brand, or tree brand.

Yup same for me. Didn't use it much and now can't get it to hold an edge. Went back to my Case Trapper.

Moore Maker NEVER made their knives. They’re contracted out. When Queen and Camillus were making them, they were good. Now, it’s Utica and Bear MGC. Not as good.

The carbon blades are good all if mine hold an edge as good as any Case, now the stainless ones are a different story. The man that owns Moore Maker is a good of a man as you can find, our CEO went to his house last year before Christmas wanting to buy a couple of knives as gifts. Of course he didn't have any cash only a card, the old man told him to go dig in the shop and find what you want and send me a check when you get home. I'll buy his knives as long as he has them, but I am very picky in which ones.

I wanted the Moore maker due to the locking blade. I like the case as well but I donít believe the trapper, jr, or sodbushter has locking blade.

Case does have a trapperlock now. Itís a single blade trapper with a liner lock and a pocket clip. If you get a Moore Maker I would say the lock is a good idea based on mine. The springs are very weak and it closes up easy. Itís been like that since new.
