    If it was OD over natural and blue that would be my top choice

    Agreed! My favorite and such a rarely seen combo. I need a one from Fiddleback to completely my trio.

    I'm in, Osage natural liner blue pinstripe sounds awesome. Second choice would be desert ironwood. I would prefer a handyman but if it ends up being HB that is fine too, just happy to get in on this. I am down for predator triangle pins or beauty marks etc. if the guys get bored making too many of the same knife.

    (Thanks again to @Odaon and @Choppaman - hope I didn’t forget anyone else; it was a great - very generous - team effort)

    Well, some would disagree, which is why I have it.
    It’s “only” 1/8” TT with a very high grind - personally, I think that’s :thumbsup:, but some of the others are holding out for 3/32”...

    I would be one of those above mentioned disagree-ers. That knife is awesome for sure I was tempted even with the TT 1/8, because of the handle set up, but I really wanted 3/32 Hiking Buddy. ;)

    The weight and feel of the 3/32 outclassed the 1/8 for my preferences. The HB for me is an EDC and light use woods knife. In those instances I want as light and thin as possible. Now a days I'm rarely doing heavy wood prep for fire making, or bushcrafty wood work that might warrant a thicker steel. I just don't have any needs for a thick stocked, heavy knife for what I do. So might as well go and light as possible! :thumbsup:

    I'm thinking the Hiking Buddy I snagged from Mac will be perfect for me. Might be one of the lightest HBs around actually. :D


    All that said, the AEB-L stock is slightly thicker and falls in between the two. But I'm willing to settle a bit on my preferences when it's stainless.

    @Odaon
    Pls share pics when you get it. Or, what is the color/materials scheme of the handle?
