    Handle options look to be acceptable and a one per person limit makes sense if the batch will be limited to 20 knives. That being said, I'll be holding out in the hope that a Handyman is offered sometime in the future since I already have several stainless Hiking Buddy's in my collection.

    +1 to the above. All the stipulations seem good and a one per person limit is probably a good idea. I hope this works because I too will hold off for a handyman in the future.

    The folks at Fiddleback Forge are the best!

    Perfect. Ironwood combo for me. Will there be a stamp on them indication a group buy like GB1?

    I thought it was agreed that “BIG DEAL” would be stamped across the full side of the blade...?

    I think a small indicator on the tang - maybe at the back of the pommel - would be a nice/appropriate touch. And “GB” followed by the number of the series sounds like a good idea.

    i would like to see final details, but i'm for-sure interested. of the handle options Vance mentioned, i like the Ironwood and Nat Canvas choices. i also like the osage, but don't prefer blue pinstripes. i could get over it though. :D

    Edit: you guys are planning to do "li'l-bit-thicker" handles on this special group buy, right? ;)

    I don't think a stamp is necessary. Making these precise combinations in this exact steel on this particular model an exclusive to the group buy could be neat, though. Honestly, if it happens at all I'll be happy.

    You may or may not regret that decision. Haha.

    I'm excited to see how this turns out. Would be cool to see some groups of a few of the other models in the future.

    Also, I'm definitely in for an Osage one!

    Hope I'm fast enough to get in for an Osage as well:D. I'm betting these go crazy quick when they are released:eek:. Thanks again to Andy and the Forge guys for giving us a shot at this:thumbsup:

    @VANCE Any idea if it will be a surprise drop or if you guys will give a couple days notice when you will open the thread?

    Thanks a lot
