    I picked up a Hiking Buddy with black bolsters and Bocota with O1 steel. I have to be honest, I couldn't decide which knife to get. This year, I think Andy out did himself. There were several models that were speaking to me. Great job Andy!!!

    I don't have any pics of the bushfinger i scored from Andy i gave it to my son for his birthday. He was very happy and hugged me for the longest time. It has ironwood handles and is quite beautiful with a Heber sheath which is also very nice. Bring on the pics guys i wish i could donate some myself but i have'nt seen that BF since my son left with it to go hiking.

    Sweet knives guys. Thanks for sharing the pictures. Anyone else with BLADE goodies from Fiddleback I know we'd all enjoy some pictures if you get a chance :)

    BBQ Boy that HB is particularly nice. That knife is high on my list of desirable Fiddlebacks, and those scales are really handsome. Very nice!

    Doug that is such a great story! Really, it made me smile. Sounds like your son appreciates a good knife when he sees it...and it sounds like it'll be well used as well! Another of Andy's blades has found a happy home :D

    Bladeshow was a lot of fun again this year. I'm very glad you are all happy with your knives, and I was very glad to meet so many of y'all at the show. I've made a lot of friends here over the years and it is quite an experience to put so many names with faces. Thanks for all the support guys.

    Hidden tang KE Bushie, I knew I wanted this one from the pre-show pics, fondled it a bit, walked the floor and came back a bought it, it was extra difficult, since every blade on Andy's table was outstanding

    It's propped up on a big chunk of Thuya wood burl that I managed to score in Morocco

    Really nice scores!! Now that Lisa has my old Hiking Buddy my next is going to either be convex 5/32 HB, or a Woodsman.


    Some pics from the Fiddleback, Fletcher, and Dogwood booth :)

    I think I fondled the Woodsman a little longer than Andy would have preferred...

    For some reason these put me in mind of the Crysknife from Dune

    Of course Dylan and the Mrs. were there.

    Not recalling the name of it, but I really dig the re-curved tactical tanto design Dylan came up with!

    I also really like the newly designed Pocket Kilo I picked I picked up :D Sweet blade and perfect for discretion in my urban environment.

    Ohh, I think I see my new camp knife in there. :D And that Duracoated Machete contrasts nicely with my sheath.

    Mystwalker, thanks for the pictures! Looks like everyone was having a great time.
