I preordered this knife to get the features I wanted and a discount as well. The 20CV steel really takes a keen edge. I haven't had an opportunity to use this knife yet, but I have the original in M4 steel that just does whatever I ask of it. I have no reason to believe this will be any different. DLT service was outstanding as always.

I've been buying Knives from Bark River for over 10 years and the quality keeps getting better and better. This Essential in 20CV is an outstanding combination of engineering and art.

This is my fourth BR and my favorite. Its the second in 20cv and what sets this one apart is the thinner grind making it super sharp out of the box. Its the most useful edc I own and I have plenty of knifes. I love the DLT pocket sheath and use it exclusively. Fit and finish is spot on. I have a size large hand and it fits perfectly both in the hand but also in the pocket. I will have a hard time rotating to my other knifes now because this one works for my everyday office setting but then I can carry it in my pocket hiking and hunting on the weekends. BR hit a home run with this one!

I waited a long time for an Essential in California Buckeye Burl with Red Liners and Mosaic Pins. One of my buddy's spotted this one on Jason's site, I couldn't believe it. I'm so glad he saw it. Great looking, quick shipping and major satisfaction.
