    Yeah I know, all of you already have several but this is my first FB that just came in today.

    Like a proud papa with his 1st kid I just got a need to show her off.

    I really like the way it looks and feel. Can't wait to get her all dirty this weekend.

    Wicked Spalting on that Scandi grind! I dig the Ruby with Black, too. Does it have Black Liners, as well?

    Enjoy!

    Nice choice. I had my eye on that one! I'm glad you got it. I'm sure you'll be like the rest of us and your collection will grow. I look forward to seeing more pics of that one.

    Same here bob. Went right through an avocado on one of mine and into my finger! Obviously, I have not made that mistake again :O

    I think this should be called the Deadpool configuration in honor of Jerry.

    By the way, congrats @texasrimfirenut

    That sure is a beauty! Enjoy!

    Like others have said, it probably won't be your last FF knife.

    1 or 50 matters not, but the smile on your face when you carve into something with that sweet scandi means everything.

    Congrats on the first and do enjoy the journey whether it's your last or one of many more to come.

    Thanks guys. Yep I do have quite a collection of knives so this won't be the last FB.

    I usually buy 1 nice knife each month, this month it's gonna have to be two, lol.

    I am going have to pick up one of those Arete next week from one of the members on here.

    Look forward to my collection but mostly forward to using my FBs.

    Thanks again everyone!

    You picked a good one. Do you folks think I should hurry up and re-build the Scandi jig?

    @Fiddleback Andy, I am a fan of the BC line up. Scandi’s and bushcrafting goes together. I would like to see a scandi BC. I would try it out if that were an option. Maybe pass it around to a few others for an opinion. The BC has a high blade so I’m not sure how it would turn out. KEB’s and Blade’s similar in height may be a better fit?

    The long way around it but yes. Would like to see some more scandi grinds.
