Mine came yesterday. Its nice, and for the price is very nice. There are some areas that are not sanded that well, but that is an easy fix.
Sheath is like two levels above this price range, you could use it with some handmade knife and noone will complain.
So I was using Bow river for this day, cutting veggies and ham for pizza and just using it on everything. I whittled some wood and it did just fine. Cant tell much about steel performace, but I was suprised how quickly can it take that raw edge from my medium ceramic stone. Like, if you buy Bow river and one sharpmaker medium rod, you are good to go for a long trip in the woods.
I was a bit sceptic about trailing point knife, but I quite like it.
Oh yeah, just my thought. I think that one or two batches of Southfork made in China from 8cr would make a killer bigger brother of Bow river.
