Hello Everyone, This is my first post, and it's great to be here! Thank you for all your responses in advance. Last week I received my first Bark River knife and it is the Crusader in 3V (see pics below). I've been looking for a large bush knife and when I came across the Crusader, it was perfect, especially in that steel choice. The knife is super capable, well balanced and beautiful. However... As this is my first Bark, I did want to get your opinion on some finer details on the blade. There are a few, what I would consider, significant cosmetic "imperfections" and asymmetry on the knife for this sort of a price tag. I wanted to know if this is just the way Bark River rolls and it's their "style" or level of execution, being a "semi-custom" and all, or if this is something you would recommend I address with the seller or Bark River themselves. Am I nit-picking or is this unusual for a Barkie? Here are the "issues": The grind is a full 3mm higher on the right side than the left. This is also partially responsible for the uneven grind depth around the choil. (See pics) There are some unsightly grind marks that were missed during the finishing process on the blade grind by the choil and on the butt of the knife tang. These don't look great and are subject to corrosion. See pics below: Additionally, the false grind is also visually asymmetrical, but it's hard to depict that in photos. So what do you guys think? Should I just forget about these cosmetic flaws and just enjoy the knife, as Bark Rivers are meant to be imperfect. Or did I get a "Monday Morning" specimen and should have these things looked after? I do absolutely love the knife, but I'd be lying if I said there things weren't a bit annoying on a hefty purchase. Thanks so much for checking this out!
