Personally I am not familiar with Sheffield products, so I can't say much for the quality/construction of the blade. But given the long blade and the design(hollowed belly, unknown full tang, sharp pommel, serrated false edge spine), I do suggest to be very careful if your son do intend to baton or chop wood(or even prying) with it.
The Sheffield Bowie has been imported from England since the 1850's. Sheffield knives have had a sterling reputation for well over a century.
My son doesn't baton with a knife, and understands that a good knife is not a crowbar. I noticed this knife is relatively light (due to the cut outs in the blade.), even with a full tang, so I'm not sure it would make a good chopper. Definitely big enough to whack down a few limbs, though.
The back of this Rogue has a very sharp, square edge, and he's already struck a few good sparks with the included ferro rod. He's still in his "big knife" phase, as I was in my youth. The serrated false edge on this knife is the only thing that doesn't appeal to me.
Spyder, I have no idea if it's 440, or not.
