Terry- I have looked at a lot of different knives and I was drawn to this maker because of the materials used and some reviews I've read.
The biggest reason is because it will cost me nothing out of pocket to try out this manufacturer's product. I wasn't a big fan of Spyderco until I started getting them as gifts from this same friend/salesman. I've been carrying my PM2 or Southard ever since. That is saying a lot, since I was a diehard Benchmade fan, but that changed. Now I think BM is overpriced for the products they offer.
My opinion on the lack of a Finger guard is, a matter of preference. I will approach using this tool the same way I do any hand tool, distraction free and not to use beyond it's intended purpose. Most accidents involving sharp tools involve 1 of those 2. As a manager of a machine shop, I approach every tool knowing it's purpose and capabilities.
Other Bark River Dealers
and the largest dealer by far
Brad, I'm curious why you're considering Bark River knives. I don't know much about them and would like to hear what you and other members of this forum think of their quality vs. price. None of the Bark River knives I've seen online have finger guards on them, which IMO is an indispensable feature of every fixed blade outdoor knife except maybe a neck knife or Cold Steel's Bushman knives. What is it about Bark River's knives that appeals to you?
Here's another Bark River retailer.
They offer free blade options, such as removing the ramp (field version), standard, swedge grind, spear point, and drop point blade configurations.
I would say what a nice guy. Here at this site are deeply discounter Bark River knives: http://www.dlttrading.com/bark-river-overstocks-discounted-knives
My steel salesman has asked that I pick out another knife. He has to use his "expense cash" before they take it. He asked that I not pick a custom knife since we are still waiting for the Medford knife he ordered for me last Christmas. I was looking at some Bark River knives last night, but was undecided. I have a $400 limit, ideas?
Hey Aubrey, Are you talking about your profile pic?
Those are some very good makers. But the picture is so small that it's almost impossible to see the knives. I'd love for you to post that picture here in the full size.

it really bugs me when someone uses the wrong tool to do a job, like a knife as a pry bar, and yet I find myself doing it too. if we could only carry our whole tool box with us at all times this would never happen.
I don't think there are many steels/set up that would endure 30-40 degree bends at rockwell 64. Maybe CPM3V might hold up at rockwell 61. But in general you REALLY don't want to be using anything over rockwell 56 for pry duty.
There's exceptions offcourse. Like the really thick 1/4" knives. But in general they compromise on their cutting ability.
