    Well, its been another week, and it is time for Fiddleback Friday once again. This week I have a lot of wooden handles, as requested. I have lots of curley cues on Bushfingers, and Kepharts. I’ve also a Hunter and a Recluse with tapered tangs, both wearing Osage Orange.

    As always, my first priority is to thank all of you from myself and Ron and our families. We depend on y’all, and we hope you love the tool you buy from us.

    The prices this week are without sheaths. I am lucky enough to work with both Heber Ellsworth and Rick Lowe. Both make fantastic sheaths that are completely different from one another. I appreciate your support for them as well.

    All of the steel is 3D Spalted 01. Shipping is included within the US. We do all our shipping on Thursdays.

    Payment may be made to Paypal, or by personal check or MO. I hold all personal checks until they have cleared. This usually doesn’t cause a delay because they usually clear before shipping day. The paypal address is: fiddlebackpayments at att dot net. Please describe your purchase in the payment notes.

    The scandi batch didn't upload. Must be a glitch.

    Another batch of beauties.

    I saw a comparison thread - it's the KE Bushie that sings to me. Any chance of another in the future?

    I don't own any SS, and won't be using 3V. I tried 3V. Made myself a Bushfinger. It was horrible stuff to grind. I wound up hammering it into a stump.

    Thanks G. Both knives you got are beauties!!!

    Thanks Ice-Pic

    Thanks Rusty! It is yours.

    I appreciate the support bro. Thank you.

    Thans Soulava. You got it!

    hmmm doing your friday batches at 6:30am est doesn't really offer the west coasters much a chance... maybe you don't care :) it's 8am pst here and most your knives are already gone. So I guess that is a good thing :) cheers!
