    I love the visual show threads so why not start another for possible the knife with the best handle design.

    When Andy first announced the BH he posted an OD over natural with blue stripes that I don't think has gone up for sale. That would be my choice!!

    About six months ago, I got the opportunity to borrow one of the early Bush Hermits from my good friend Peter. I wrote about that experience and how impressed I am with the Bush Hermit in this thread:

    http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/s...int-Maverick-Comparison?highlight=Bush+Hermit

    At the end of the thread, I mentioned that I had just scored my own burl handled Bush Hermit on a Fiddleback Friday thread. The purchase was a little unusual for me because I seldom buy wood handled knives any more. When I showed my wife pictures of the knife on the Friday thread, she said that was the most beautiful Fiddleback she had ever seen. She asked who the lucky person was who scored it. When I said “me”, she smiled and told me that she wanted it to be "her" first Fiddleback. Since she has always been supportive of my knife hobby, it was easy to say OK. I told her this is an excellent choice for her first Fiddleback.

    I am still on the lookout for a tapered 1/8” Bush Hermit with synthetic handles to call my own. If anyone :))) wants to sell one in black micarta with Koa bolsters, please let me know. ;) Until then, the search continues.

    Phil

    It's a bigger work knife for sure. Nice full handle

    Phil skunked me on the pretty BH so I had to settle for this old thing. ;)

    Love this thread. The Bushhermit is my favorite model in a long time. I carry an Osage Orange dud that had tearout around the bullseye tube. For a long time I didn't think I'd come up with a better bushcrafting knife than the Bushfinger, but I think the Bushhermit is better.

    Here's some pics of mine form a recent trip. It has certainly become favorite for me as well. I think this one is going to Africa with me this summer.

    This thread inspired me to get the Camelthorn 'Shermit out. The handle shape is really becoming a fave of mine.

    Loving the CT! This has been my most used pattern for awhile now. Orion, I think you were looking for one of these [emoji3].

    Heck yeah Justen! That's got to be one of my favorite Fiddlebacks, to date. Glad to see it surface! Looks like you've been getting some use out of it! :thumbup:
