    Them have some nice designs. Anyone have one? Not super crazy money either. I like the fox river magnum.

    Yes, I own several. They are excellent. I've had a Bravo 1 for several years and it is my all time favorite all-round fixed blade knife. Their edge geometry and heat treat is very good. I love their A2 steel and wood handles. Very good fit and finish, good designs, good sheaths if you get leather. Their kydex sheaths are terrible.

    I like almost everything I've gotten from them, and I'm very picky. I own all sorts of Busses, Chris Reeve etc. and Bark River is in that range quality wise. Their prices are very reasonable for what you get. One of the top production fixed blade makers out there. Their Blackjack models are just as good and even less expensive.

    I've got a Gunny model with a redwood handle that I'm fond of. Its a well made knife in a useful size. I used to be a Gunny (GySgt, USMC) too, so that doesn't hurt either. It replaced my Ka-bar on my last deployment.
