Cons: Blade Material, Finish
good for a cheap knife
i purchased this knife a couple of weeks ago when it was still only $30 on this site. i bought it to try out as a bushcraft knife based on the rave reviews from around the interwebs and i'm liking it, but a little disappointed. don't get me wrong, i like it and it's a good tool, but after some dirt time with it, i'm a little worried about how soft the steel is. the edge came to me fine out of the box, tip was rolled slightly. not only was that a red flag, but the ease with which it corrected on my stone was troublesome. so far, the factory edge has held up to some woodwork, but i can tell it needs some tlc. i tried striking some sparks off the back of the blade and was able to get some decent sparks, but the stone completely chewed up the back of the blade. i know that is supposed to happen to an extent, but it's different on this knife. the edges of the spine seem really beat up and rolled out. i noticed that when using the spine on my ferro rod as well. after a few strikes, it almost seemed sharper, but it was because the blade material was rolling out. the sheath is good quality and the knife all but disappears on my belt. overall, this is a great, quality tool for the price. i have to say i'd be a little upset at the current price of almost $40 though. i was hoping that this knife would fill my need for a good bushcraft blade, but it looks like i'll still be saving up for a knife with better steel. for now, the bushlore will work just fine, but i want something higher quality.

Great Knife
This is a great knife and was very impressed at the sharpness and craftsmanship in the manufacture of the knife and sheath. It will be used in most of my outdoor activities hunting and fishing. Thanks for a good value.

good for the price
i picked up two of the bushlore knives , both came in about the same condition. for the price i knew what i would be getting . the original finish of the handle would wear just by putting it in and out of the sheath . about 5 minutes of sanding with some 220 grit , restaining , 3 coats of poly and i would put it up against any high dollar knife handle . the blade came coated , looked like it was coated after it had been beveled . needed to use a course stone to remove it , after that on to sharpening . it is now sharper then i will ever need . i think this is a high quaity low cost knife.
