Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Here is a Cohutta Mountaintown between 2 Fiddleback Forge Bush Hermits. The differences are maybe subtle in the pics, but in your hand the Hermit feels fuller. There is a little more belly in the handle and because the curve of the swell sits a little further back on the Hermit, it makes a noticeable difference and just feels thicker. The MT thins more toward the butt. Both are ROCK STAR designs in my opinion and you wouldn't want to put either of them down, trust me! As you can see, blades are really similar and vary slightly even within each model, but the MT is a little slimmer. I can't attest to any hard work with these three yet as you can see, but... I plan too. They are WAY too clean and purdy LOL and need a little dirt and a few scars IMO. Hope that helps?!
