    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.:D They are WAY too clean and purdy LOL and need a little dirt and a few scars IMO. Hope that helps?!

    Nice trio! Thanks that does help and it looks like some of my concerns about the Bush Hermit handle might be addressed in the Mountaintown. To me the Bush Hermit handle felt like a very specialized wood processing beast. That is a great thing for most but for me it was just a little tall which did not always feel like what I am used to in different grip positions. My primary uses are probably not where it's strengths lie. The Mountaintown might just lean more in the all around feel that I am hunting for. Could just be that the Larger grip would feel normal after a while because I am coming from smaller knives, who knows. In the end if I can find that one compromise 4" knife that has the perfect balance I will be overjoyed. I doubt it though because it is nice to be using the right tool best suited for the task it was made for.
