    Fiddleback Friday...After Dark
    Fiddleback Friday BONUS. We picked more knives to post on the site at 9PM tonight. There’s no preview for these. Think of it as a scavenger hunt for awesomeness. Hint: they will post on the same Fiddleback Friday page as the above knives. That will reduce the effort involved to find them. Happy hunting!

    That's exactly what I thought! However, I thought it wasn't big enough.

    Clue me in. I don't like them, mostly (the way most people do them) they annoy the hell out of me catching on fishing line, sinew and tendons when dressing game, small cord, or the edge of something I am cutting. I'll never never take a knife with a sharpening choil on a night fishing trip again or into combat. But I do understand the point of a small sharpening choil for sharpening for some people. What would be the point of a larger one? The only way I like them at all, much less the larger ones is the way Bill Harsey does his were they slant out to the blade's edge to help avoid them hanging during the uses mentioned above. Lol, for me the absence of a small notch between the edge and the ricasso is one of the features I really like about Fiddleback Forge knives.

    I jumped on that grenade for you guys. I'm calling it the first choil that has ever come out of the forge. Anyone got anything that can disprove this stance? I guess you could count Allen's little choil work, but those are all closed IIRC.

    As a flashback, here's another first....

    I was being sarcastic. I think once I've been where I choked up on a blade where the choil was big enough to get a finger into, but at that point is it even a choil?

    Ah, gotcha. And yeah, that particular shape in that particular location is general accepted as being one type of choil or another if there is no handle material in that area. It's just the smaller ones are sharpening choils and the bigger ones are finger choils, the ones in between are mostly confusing to me...

    Damn, I hate it when I need one, but can't do anything about it. That purple Falcen is sweet, I think I like it better that @pertinux's blurple one even.
