    Behind The Scenes @ Fiddleback Forge

    Just a friendly reminder these knives are for “Preview” not “Pre-sale”.


    Kyle has officially taken over the “glue-up” process today. He’s had a couple small batches w/ Cody over the past couple weeks in an effort to get him fully up to speed.

    Here he is getting a little advice from Allen regarding the “Fiddleback” way of doing this process.

    Someone needs to say something to Kyle about his knife of choice.

    With Kyle moving on to the glue-process, we have a new Sheriff of of the Drill Press. John.

    I think this is his 3rd week here

    He’s about ½ way there

    I recall reading an older thread where someone mentioned lanyard/fob beads made from the ‘bullseye’ materials. Seeing these BTS pictures reminded me of it, and I wasn’t sure where to ask about it.
    Any chance of those ever being produced?

    Say what... These guys are crazy, that's an awesome/useful vintage Vic solo(?) there Kyle

    @VANCE chop me up some 12x12 squares of your glue up table and that other beat up table. It would make a pretty sweet tray to display Fiddlebacks on.

    there were 5 made. 1 marked " Fiddleback". I put it on my Runt and carried it for awhile. I gifted it away at the last USAMADEBLADE open house. The other [​IMG]


    honestly...i did not find it as cool as I thought it would be. it just looks like a stainless tube on a lanyard.
    The first 4 people( 1 per person please) to email me at [email protected] can get the remaining ones.>>>>>ALL GONE, Thanks everyone

    Much respect to the Vic's.......this is more like a the cheapest knife in the history of the worlds...google "penny knife"


    What if we just take a air hammer and chisel some off and send it to you. I'll enclose some epoxy to affix it to your table. your wife will love it:D

    That could happen. Staying sane in a marriage sometimes you must act first and worry about consequences later ;)
