It looks like the same ol' shitty handle that every youtuber who's ever really abused the knife has had to replace.
Mine was in the $11 ballpark, but it never made it into /r/just_Buy_A_Mora/ because the Mora Companion blows it away in value right out of the box.
If you're going to make a custom knife via stock removal without heat-treating, I suppose an Old Hickory at $11 is probably as good a carbon steel blank as you could find, (some disassembly required.)
The new one comes with less metal but It comes with a sheath now.

It's pretty decent but I'd highly recommend an old hickory instead. Google around and you'll see many share my opinion.
If you end up getting that and need a sheath, it actually fits perfectly in a standard KA-BAR sheath.
