    I want to Second this notion! The Bush Hermit is a special knife. I got to handle Justen's 1/8 TT versions and was blown away at how nice they feel in hand. I wouldn't mind owning one of these myself, though I do have a couple others on my list before it. :thumbsup:

    Just got back some new kydex for the BH from BuyBrown. I think this combo will be going to Africa with me this summer.

    ^That turned out very nice Phillip. Simple, clean, minimal size and maintenance. That should serve you well on your adventure.

    That's a great looking sheath Phillip! I have to say, I really do like kydex sheaths.

    The Bush Hermit is one of the best, bigger Bushcraft knives made by the forge.

    Thanks for the WTB interest Bob. You are currently #5 on the list.

    This is my favorite Fiddleback handle combo. Micarta for a working knife with fancy Curly Koa bolsters for show. I would love to have a 3/32” Bushcrafter with a thicker handle in this combo. That is the only Fiddleback on my wish list. I am hoping and waiting...:) @Fiddleback @VANCE @allen456

    I agree with many of the posts above that the Bush Hermit is the best design Andy has made in the last few years. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an all-around 4” blade with a fantastic handle shape. :thumbsup::cool:

    Gotta add some more photos to this thread:

    Does anyone have a couple of comparison photos to the Bushfinger? Besides the guard and what appears to be a slightly taller blade/handle on the BH, I am wondering what other differences or similarities there are to the Bushfinger.

    @jb33 It is a very different model in the hand. The handle is wider and more open on the pommel end. The blade is also wider. Length wise, though, they are exactly the same. 4" blade and 4.5" handle

    Big Deal,
    You appear to have a rodent problem in your knife safe.

    Here's a modified picture putting the two next to one another. The original can be found in this thread where I wrote about the Bushcraft Tasker.
