    Growing up in the '60s pelicans were a rare sight and nearly extinct. Conservation efforts have paid off and they are now back in large numbers. I got to see several large colonies this week and smaller pods of birds like this hanging around the docked boats are a common site.

    Thanks Brian. I gotta say, it’s one sweet knife. I’ve always liked the blade profile of the Ladyfinger and to have one in an EDC size is just awesome.

    Yeah, same here. I'm more drawn to the smaller blades these days, and I like the mini L better than the original. I've handled a few of them.

    Bold standing up in a pirogue like that. Wish I had mad skills like that. Always loved the marsh in the morning and evening light.

    Here's my Christmas afternoon garage time works tempering in the oven. (As you can see, I really need to clean the oven.) oh and the grinds could be a tad bit more even. Every time I do this, I really appreciate how much goes into a FBF knife and how much craftsmanship really means.

    This is my wife's Christmas gift from me. Jarrett custom made it for her since she loves turquoise. Turned out superb. Just wanted to show it off.

    I'm far from Georgia these days, but I can definitely see how I've been influenced by the "Georgia School" of knife making when I look at these two I hammered out this week. Hope I can make Trackrock this spring, I definitely could use some pointers on evening out the grind lines...

    Some combos just make me smile when I carry them. The EDC II (unused) and sheath both came from Rick Lowe, a true craftsman and Gentleman.

    My 2nd Fiddleback from a while back. Love how the un-dyed spot matches the exposed bark and the green pinstripes and dye match the mosses. My Arete is at one with the tree!
