Gordo323 is right, auto body and paint supply shops have them.

I get mine from a place that sells tools for jewellers. The cool thing about that place is that they have all sorts of cool sharpening stuff, lots of different buffing compounds and oddly shaped stones (which they use to sharpen engraving tools).

Default My Mora is Pimped!

Hey Guys and Gals,
Here is a picture of my Mora.
I used a grinder to make sure the back of the blade had perfectly square angles, and I put four notches in the back of the blade to aid in scraping magnesium or steel. The grooves turned out pretty sharp to if I need a bit of a saw for something.
I drilled a hole in the handle and used some para cord (believe it or not almost 15 feet) to make a lanyard.
I was walking around the house and found a velcro strap from a guitar cord that I was able to cut to size to hold the knife in the sheath a little better.

Very nice and well done.

Great looking lanyard Amoroque! The velcro strap is a cool idea. Be careful when taking a grinder to a knife, if you overheat the area you're working on you'll ruin the temper. Whenever you use power tools on a heat treated steel blade you've got to grind for short periods of time and constantly dip the blade in cold water to keep it cool.
