    Pertinux,

    You could use some of my leather for those knives.

    I've now caught up the most recent outlier:

    Jonny - that is an OLD one of mine. I can't even remember the last time I used that thread!

    It looks pretty good though.

    The chestnut sorta bores me, but it probably looks the best against different knife handles, in various lighting, etc-- like above!

    In person, I do like the russet very much, although it varies enough from piece to piece (including, within a sheath) that some of it is my favorite while others of it tends towards too orange-y. I look forward to seeing how it ages with time and use: I think it has more potential 'upside' (character) as it breaks in.

    I guess I'll find out!

    Exactly!

    And, to soften my statement above-- the chestnut bores me in person, in isolation, but always catches my eye in the best way when I see it in pictures or peeking out of my pocket.

    Prepare yourself, 'cause you can't have just "one" Fiddleback! Seriously though, you can look at pics of Fiddlebacks all day but once you get one in hand and use it that's when you know its the best handmade knife you will have the honor to own. Have fun!

    Pretty much what he said. I had always carried folders and never really considered carrying a fixed blade as my every day carry knife. Then I stumbled into the Fiddleback forum. I bought my first one (a patch) and fell off the deep end. While I still have my folders I always have a Fiddleback if I am not at work (at work I usually have a 3" Hinderer or CRK). those Fiddleback knives are a functioning work of art.
