    Thanks for the compliment, Uncle_P! I need to take a better picture and try to do it justice.

    It's my first FB and it's just the perfect size at 7.5". I really like the feel of the bushboot in hand and of course it's a work of art. I will try my hand at making a sheath for it soon.

    Looking forward to seeing yours, Vance!:D

    Some beautiful specimens, mistwalker!! It's hard to pick a favorite out of that group;) Since the bushboot is a favorite of yours, and i have had the pleasure of reading many of your posts and garnering your insight while lurking here, can you speak a little bit as to why it's a favorite of yours? I'm just curious and maybe some others are as well.

    It's just a very handy little knife. Great size for edc, looks classy for urban environments rather than looking tactical, but still has great intent and works well in some of my favorite grips. The new one will look even classier than the others when I break it out at a restaurant :)

    Thanks for your thoughts, mistwalker:D I had many of the same thoughts and thus the reason I purchased it for my first FB:D

    The new one is very classy and I look forward to more pictures of it!

    Another shot in better light. It seemed to draw some attention too:D

    Very nice! Yeah, the Bushboots always catch my eye. Doesn't matter what the handle material is I always think about getting it lol. I couldn't believe I was fortunate enough to snag the curly cue Friday. I have been wanting one for a long time!

    Here's one of mine:

    For me, the Bushboot has a different geometry than many other knives. To me, the blade seems lower than the handle where on many other knives the blade seems higher than the handle. If that makes any sense.

    Thanks and I look forward to some of your shots of the curly cue when you get a chance:D

    Just a beauty, swonut!! And I understand and agree about the geometry.

    Thanks so much for pulling up all those works of art, bonafide!! Myself and i am sure others appreciate your effort!!:thumbup::thumbup:

    Here's my first Fiddleback. I remember back when I first heard about Andy Roy and Fiddleback Forge knives and I thought to myself, "This guy is making knives that speak to me and anyone who uses lime green liners is okay in my book." So I determined to get anything from Fiddelback Forge with a lime green liner. Then I read about Fiddleback Fridays and I was very excited to jump in feet first and see what I could come up with. Now that many FF Fridays have come and gone, I'm still amazed that I was able to get this beauty on my first try! I had Rick Lowe make a sheath for it and the rest is now history.
