    Andy and I discussed this topic again today and hammered out the details. The way we handle discounts now will be a little different, obviously, since sales are on the site and for a larger audience.


    Military/LEO/Fire/EMS Discounts
    We will still offer the Military/LEO/Fire/EMS discount at both Outpost and Forge have always done.


    Here’s how we’ll handle it:
    1 - A person reaches out requesting the discount. [email protected] .com
    2 - Person sends proof of service using the same email they’ll use for orders. Email to [email protected]. We’re very relaxed on what this requires, so that it’s not difficult for anyone. We use a common sense approach here.
    3 - We then tag that customer’s email in our system as being able to use the promotion code.
    4 - Customer uses discount code EACH TIME they check out. The promotion code is: SERVICE10

    Remember you have to be added on our end for the code to work for you!

    If you were previously on Outpost's eligible have already been copied over. You can get the discount on both sites! If you were not setup previously, you'll need to email us to get setup.

    Pro Tip
    Once you are on the approved list, you can also use a URL to go to the site that would automatically apply the discount to the cart so you don't have to put it in manually. However, you should have the code handy just in case the link doesn't work for some reason.


    Gold Member Discount
    Goes away. Sorry.


    Reviewer Discount
    The 10% discount for reviewers WILL be available. To qualify, you will have to send @VANCE a link to the review (outside of Fiddleback Forge's Subforum on Blade Forums) a Fiddleback Forge knife that you wrote.
    • Email your review link (or other proof) to [email protected]
    • You will be emailed back a promotion code to use at checkout.


    Dealer Purchase Award Discount
    If you purchase a knife from on of our authorized dealers, you will be eligible for a ONE TIME discount of 10% a purchase at
    • Email your receipt to [email protected]
    • Receive promotion code back via email for ONE TIME discount
    • Limited to one time per one person

    List of current authorized dealers can be found here:



    Discounts are not retroactive, make sure to REMEMBER to use it when you buy!

    Only one discount code can apply to a checkout. Use the best option for you.

    The Gold Member discount going away and reviews having to be done somewhere other than on Blade Forums seems to herald a major shift in the Fiddleback Forge paradigm. Interesting.

    Edited for clarity:
    "Outside of Fiddleback Forge's Subforum on Blade Forums"

    Elsewhere on Blade Forum qualifies per Andy.

    That's up to Leah. Ask her when you take her out to dinner.

    Firstly, none of the discounts are changing at all when you buy a knife direct from Fiddleback Forge directly at Bladeforums during group buys, or at shows. The gold member discount included. In addition, I have negotiated to have each of the other three discounts honored at There will be no change to where you can post reviews either. They just have to be out of this subforum, with a thread containing a link here to the thread. It will add an e-mail to Phillip to the process though. I find those delightful and I hope all of you do as well.
