This one was my gateway knife to more Fiddlebacks...
The best handle of any knife made
Truly versatile handle - one of the few Fiddlebacks that has enough width across the handle to still work with light gloves in the MT winters. I tend to switch to this one during the colder seasons due to this reason.
Diggn those custom pinstripes, Swo! Did you make that steel?
@Hurrul, what is that knife in the first picture?
Looks like a pro kephart
think its a Duke but it hard to tell at that angle
As NoRest noted, it is the Kephart model in black canvas micarta.
Just in case in your curious, the bottom pic is a Puuko
Nice piece of pitchwood/fatwood - love that heavy, dark amber color...which means it's a very saturated specimen. A few good fires inside that little stick.
nice bones Chris

@Lady1911 are those keppy scales really that textured or is it an illusion? I’ve only seen smooth scales on the pro series (except for BDB’s mods).
Production scales are textured. Custom Shop knives, which put the Forge's regular handmade scales on a Production S35VN blank, will have smooth scales.
here they are..they are a little exaggerated on this Prototype...but show the concept pretty well
Thanks. While any hike in motorcycle boots is less than thrilling, the end result was pretty amazing. And we left Atlanta at 98F, we arrived in Cruso at 65F staying under 80F the entire time in NC. Mountains rule during a heatwave.
They are very grippy, but not as aggressive as the pictures appear. It's hard to explain. The texture is roughed up enough to keep the knife locked into the hand, but not to the point of digging into skin or anything. These handles definitely make the knife all the more useful....and bulletproof!
