    Wow! Alayna is lucky to have a father like you! Mine gave me a Buck 110 when I was 14. I still have it and lots of great memories with it but its no Fiddleback!

    Aha! Was eyeing that HB on DLT because the ruby burlap matches my Ladyfinger. So, you saved me from having to purchase it based on looks alone. Congrats! (I think... :) )

    I chose it because it reminded my of the local endangered cockatoo here in Western Australia, the Red-tailed Black Cockatoo. They're a large (up to 26" tall), raucous bird that live in the forests where I hike. The male is jet black, save for solid bright red panels on the tail feathers. The female has orange banded tail feathers (see my avatar).

    I named my hiking group after them, and usually use Redtail as my forum and track name. (Hopefully BF will get around to processing my name change request soon!)

    I like everything about this post. It’s cool to learn the ‘backstory’ behind your choice, and I’m glad you Found the right HB for you. Now you have to be on the lookout for a black/orange combo.....;)

    According to the tracking info, the Bushboot below decided to take the scenic route through Memphis after stopping in Alabama on its way from Georgia to Louisiana. :( Was expecting to have it today, but alas, another lesson in patience courtesy of the USPS.

    It’s black palm. Will be a first for me. From the pics, it looks like an interesting wood.

    I regret not trying to buy this knife although if I remember correctly it only lasted long enough for someone to give up some CC and shipping info.

    According to USPS this gorgeous Bush Hermit should be in my hands tomorrow evening. After years of gawking at Andy's knives and a few months of deliberation and searching, I will finally get my mitts on a Fiddleback. I'll be sure to post my own glamour shots soon.
