    Woodlore is very much one person's (ok maybe 2) interpritation of what a bushcraft knife may be and there seems to be a premium paid. It's not even to the original make/designer.

    Don't be fooled by the myth. It's just a knife designed to cut wood more often than anything else

    plenty of other cheaper options out there. Custom or not....

    I like the basic shape, the sheath also looks good. I can't say I like the double bevel blade though. The main thing is the price is a bit high for a production fixed blade.

    I would go for a BHK or a custom maker for that price point. It is good to see another bushcrafty knife from a major maker though. Anyone that prefers the blade grind style would like this one.

    The more I look at this blade the more I think I need to order one and try it out.

    Seems like every company I see is hopping on the "bushcraft" gear/ knife bandwagon these days. Looks like a decent knife though.

    Design looks good. Think I'll pick one up when available.

    If that was a Scandi, Convex, or FFG, It would be mine...

    Its a beautiful production knife, but I think it's a tad too thick, and a full flat grind would be better in my opinion.
