First time buying a quality knife and it is impressive. The Sendero bush is no longer made but these guys still have a few I'd get them while you can. The finish on this knife is amazing, you can tell it was hand finished as there are small little things that are not perfect but just holding it you would never notice them. The knife is razor sharp and came in a sweet little box. The leather sheath has great retention and takes a little effort to get it out. The profile of this blade is what sold me it looks perfect for skinning and breaking down any big game. I plan to take this thing out and put it to the test on elk and deer in the coming 2 weeks. We will see how the blade handles 2 elk and possibly 2 deer if we can find them. I will update or add another follow up after I get back from that trip. The people at northwest knives are awesome and very knowledgeable willing to go the extra mile with customer service. I plan to head back at some point and have a talk and look at more of these White river knives to add to this.
