    It had to happen eventually. After years of admiring Andy's work, I was finally able to snag my first Fiddleback a few weeks ago!

    Euphoria over my score turned to anticipation and then to agony as every day the parcel delivery studiously avoided my house. :eek:

    I can't tell you how happy I was when this showed up in my mailbox: :D

    The photos really don't do this knife justice. Amazing work Andy! You exceeded all my expectations!

    Hey Phil, that's a sweet Bushfinger. I especially like the spalting on that one.
    My first Fiddleback was a Bushfinger as well. I think it is still my favorite although I've got my eye on another model that I'm hoping to snatch up soon that may be a contender.

    Take care, Sergio

    That is a beautiful knife P! That burlap leaps out against the 3D Spalting.

    Seeing your Bushfinger is making waiting for my first bushfinger even harder. I love the canvas micarta and the blue pinstripe really pops. Great looking knife - enjoy
