    Got this the other day on the big auction site. Currently It's in the air somewhere between Georgia and California.
    This is one of the auction pics.
    Coming out of Georgia, maybe someone here recognizes this little gem?

    I've been curious about this knife for a long time and am pretty stoked to finally use one.

    Other than opening boxes (I know this is a beast for that) what are you guys/gals who also have one, find yourself using it on? Anyone use if for food prep/eating?

    New to the forum and new to Fiddleback Forge knives. Sorry for the crappy picture, couldn't get a great screenshot from their website. My Christmas present is on its way from The Knife Connection. Old School Lady Finger in Oreo burlap with natural liners and lime pin stripes. Super excited to get this peice of art in my hands. My wife will kill me if I don't use it as intended but it's going to be tough taking something so beautiful to a hunk of wood. Do most of you actually beat on your knives or are they mostly for looks?

    Welcome!

    You’ve picked a nice one! The Ladyfinger was my first Fiddleback and has remained one of my favorite models. The great thing about the Fiddleback knives is that they are beautiful to look at, but are also meant to be used. The User Pics thread is a great place to see these knives in action.

    Make sure to post pics of your Ladyfinger when you can. We like pictures. :)

    Great score man—you will not be disappointed... if fact, you’ll likely be addicted! And yes, I use mine... and they just get better looking as you knock the new off of them! Congrats.

    Old School Ladyfinger finally arrived! I think I'm a sucker for the brighter pin stripes. Thoughts on a neon green lanyard to match?Last pic is with a Bradford Guardian 3 for a size comparison.

    Thanks, but That may not happen anytime soon lol. I love the oatmeal burlap too. Also being 3/32" makes it more harder to let go for me.

    Just ordered this Esquire from the FF web site. I'm really digging the striations on these scales!
    The tortuous waiting game now begins lol!

    Got the matching shirt to go with it too! Hey, my wife matches her purses to her shoes, so I gotta match my knives to my shirts! lol (not really, but my wife did roll her eyes at me when I told her the shirt & knife match lol!)

    This one:

    I know I am not a super-active member, but I have been following for many years. Just got back to a position where I could start buying again and I just couldn't resist pulling the trigger.

    NICE!! Congrats! I know a lot of folks were after that one and it was tough for me to behave and not try for it. Love that high grind, and the colors of course :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks. It was a tough choice about wether or not to also grab that Bushboot. Fortunately, that decision was taken out of my hands because someone else grabbed that one quick.
