De Mora Basic 511 is an all-round knife for a great price. No frills or unnecessary extras, but just a good knife. The plastic handle is ergonomically shaped and offers good grip.
Because the blade is made of carbon steel it is important to maintain the blade properly. Carbon steel is not stainless and should therefore be stored clean and dry.
The plastic sheath is pretty solid and holds the knife tightly. The blade clicks inside the sheath and the bottom of the holster has a hole to drain water if needed.
There is a belt clip included to carry the sheath on your belt or to secure it to another sheath. This makes it possible to stack multiple knives from this series on top of each other. Especially useful when you have a serrated knife and want to carry a plain edge knife as well. Releasing the sheaths goes really easy by rotating the button that secures them.
