    Very cool video. Did not know about the bullseye being their trademark.

    Why don't I own a Fiddleback? I've been asking myself this question for years and never come up with a good answer. In particular, the Bushraptor is a model I've looked at many times and keep coming close to pulling the trigger on. Thx for sharing the vid!

    The Fiddleback Forge Bush Hermit is a fantastic mid size knife with a superb handle and a nice point for detail work. It's a model everyone needs to check out. And yes there is a heel of a good deal for a Gaucho right here on the forum. This is a difficult model to find period, much less available on the secondary market.

    I got a Terrasaur a month or so ago. Quickly went to the top of my list as my favorite knife. I've had some hour plus whittling sessions with zero fatigue.

    i wish he would go back to being a true custom maker...as in i get to pick the exact model, thickness, grind and handle materials...i’m willing to wait a year and pay in full in advance for a scandi arete with burlap micarta.

    currently, you just get to buy whatever he happens to have available.

    It's a tough business doing full customs. Shoot him or Phillip a message. Every so often he does some custom builds as requested

    Same Here, Ive had a couple, hated the colourful handles. Very unlikely to own another but I do keep my eye out. Im happy with straight black micarta, I dont want an oreo burlap and unicorn burl over spaceship orange with solar power pinstripes, blue accents with 50 pins holding it on. Just plain thanks.

    The colorful knives were what keep me from buying a FF. Every year at Blade I would handle some of their knives, but never bought one due to the bright colors. Ive got my eye on a couple more FF knives, but cant seem to find them in any other color than "Ruby Red" and "Bright Blue".
