    I wonder what the percentage of people that buy one, end up selling it because it didn't live up to their expectations. And what did you buy to replace it?

    I ordered my SBT April 10, 2014 and got my email from Rod on October 2, 2020 that my knife is now ready. The only correspondence from him since my order. I almost forgot about it and was just getting ready to buy an LT Wright Lagom when I got his email.

    Glad you folks are getting your knives. I've seen too many threads over the years here at BF about people ordering knives (and sometimes paying for them) and then never getting a knife.

    Again, I would never wait years for a knife, but that is me. I'm content with production stuff.

    Interestingly, there's a thread that just popped back up to the top in the Good the Bad and the Ugly on this same topic. Lots of the same personalities and points made. By all accounts the maker is an honest guy although perhaps not a great businessman or communicator. To me the product appears to be mediocre but then I never understood buying beanie babies either.

    I have owned a few. They are at least as good as any other $200'ish bushcraft knife. Only difference for me is the "artisan" guy making them in a home based shop. As a similar craftsman I like supporting that. Many other bushcraft knife companies have grown into small factories with a half dozen or more guys collectively building each knife. Nothing wrong with that, I just like the lone crafstman approach.

    You know, I've come a long way since making the original post on this thread. While I can't justify buying a SBT, that doesn't mean nobody else can't. If you can afford one, let your money buy you happiness.
    The main thing is to get out there and use it!
