    @VANCE was there a final layout of what there is to choose from yet. I may have missed that if so. Thanks for the update. I've been wondering the same.

    Phillip,
    Good to hear. I have been holding off on buying a HB so I could be in position for this.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Quantity: 20
    Model: Hiking Buddy
    Steel: .118" AEB-L SFT (that's in between 3/32" & 1/8")

    Scales:
    Desert ironwood over natural liners & white pinstripes
    Osage over natural liners & blue pinstripes
    Natural canvas micarta over natural liners & white pinstripes
    Black canvas micarta over black liners & white pinstripes

    I will start a thread this week to get the handle combo that each person would like to pre-order.

    This sounds great and would be a perfect “just because” gift for my girlfriend :)
    I’ve been wanting to get her her own Fiddleback and the stainless option in this pattern would be ideal.

    I‘m pretty sure it was decided to go in order of last/first name initials - in my case that would be AC... :D

    Just make sure I have spot #1 incase I’m not around. I want Osage on one side and ironwood on the other. Or Osage bolstered ironwood

    So no OD option. Guess it'll be Osage if I'm lucky enough to be in the first 20... Or maybe natural canvas...

    Absolutely, if OD we're an option I'd have a lot tougher of a choice. Though an OD would complete my Surls/Osprey/Fiddleback OD trio. :D

    I'm bummed that after Andy said yes to OD now it's not available.... I cant spend the extra money on a second choice handle material.

    I’m not sure if it’s possible, but maybe you could work something out with another forum member.....buy one of these options now with and agree to trade for an OD if one becomes available in the future. It’s a gamble, though.

    @VANCE I have an edit for you. Last part of the sentence, unless 1 knife person gets to buy all 20 :D

    - We want as many Fiddleback folks as possible to be able to get in on this unique opportunity so we are limiting it to 1 knife person.
