I got two from Tim, a Loveless style and a B & T. I really like both knives. I gave the smaller away as a gift but have been using the other. I've skinned 3 calves and done a bunch of odd chores with it, also ran it through the dirt a bunch the other day cutting some morels I found. I like the steel so far but I will know much more after another 3-4 months. I stropped it a few times and it's still shaving sharp. So far so good.
