Noma Compact Folding Knife Review

USA – -( The Noma compact was designed by Jesper Voxnaes from Loegstrup, Denmark. It is one of those rare folders that is designed for field dressing animals. Drawing from his extensive Nordic background, Jesper produced a folder that would make any hunter proud to carry and use.

The big-belly blade design (I would call it a very high hollow grind) is ideal for skinning and rarely found in folders. The reason this design is not common among folders as most are designed to be “all-around” blades…. translation: They are not perfect for any single task. That being said, the Noma is designed specifically for dressing and skinning our game.

The Noma is a classic lockback with nick nail opening. Its clean lines reflect the ergonomic nature of its design. It is clearly Scandinavian in origin. In keeping with their tradition of simplicity and durability, the Noma’s handle is fabricated from glass-reinforced nylon for a positive grip under all conditions.

The 2018 MSRP of $39.99 (less $$ online) makes this knife one of the best buys of the year.

Not a bad price for now-a-days when the dollar does not go very far.
