I have one of my Bushcrafter's available today. Steel is spalted 01, 5/32" thick, with a convex sabergrind! This one is wearing Osage Orange over Walnut scales. It has a black paper micarta liner (no vulcanized fiber is used at Fiddleback Forge) with matching 1/8" black pins and bullseye filler.

My Bushcrafter is the knife I wanted when I was a Boy Scout. It has a 4" blade, and a 4.5" handle. IMO, the ideal length for a woods knife is 4”. Its got a spearpoint blade that is wide and has lots of belly. Very Kephartish. The Bushcrafter was reviewed by Scott Wickham at Woodsmonkey, and his writeup can be found here:

Comes with a JRE sheath for $210 shipped.

I like this version of the bushcrafter. The "Plain Jane" types are boring. I like it when artists spruce it up :)
