    I've been really pleased to see so many models sporting osage lately and how well it has been received. My very first Fiddleback was the osage HB on top in this photo. the fact it doesn't need to be stabilized and ages with dignity over time are two qualities I love about this natural material. Put up your favorite osage shots here and from Vance's post yesterday there should be plenty more good osage shots to come.

    I'm a fan of the Osage as well. The Ladyfinger pictured is my first Fiddleback. :thumbup:

    I don't have a FB in Osage YET. However if you don't mind, here's my TM Hunt Trailmate in Osage.

    Osage will always be trending. A beautiful wood. Not sure why I have not yet picked up a Fiddleback sporting it but here is a recent addition from the FF family

    My thoughts exactly Kal-El.

    What's the steel on the Ladyfinger? I still have many models to try but the Ladyfinger is my favorite so far and I need one in Osage or Bog Oak....or both. 😀

    Mine to come as soon as I get home and snap some pics. But Gent...that osage blade you showed me at Trackrock hooked me on it.

    I thought so. I'd love one in 3/32 CPM154.

    The CPM is really nice. I'd love a matching one in 1/8 A2 with a full hight grind. :thumbup:

    I take and post so many pics I can't remember where I post them all. The BTS album is actually about twice the size of the Knives '16 album.:eek:

    But here is some more Osageawesomeness

    Osage is a great wood, naturally hard, typically not toxic, changes character over time, chatoyant, and useful.
