    Nice grab on the Muk Andy! I saw it and it peaked my interest then I saw you grabbed it. That is excellent ... Congrats!

    When the maker beats you to old school fiddlebacks you know you are in a competitive market. Nice knife.

    Is this not the best idea or what??

    Also, with each knife purchase, I'll include this printed on card stock so there's no need to try to sneak this
    knife into the house or to try and hide it from your significant other. No need to be sceered!

    Sorry to drag you into uncharted waters ;), with yet another tease(?). Yet, I thought of you right away as one whose work and words would help explain this particular sheath!

    Thanks for being a good sport, and for your helpful input. :thumbsup:

    As I've told you before, I am intrigued by your work, and feel like a rank pretender in light of what you and yours accomplish with your knives, your leather.

    [As a reference point for others, check out this thread.]

    I am still wondering if and how some of your offerings might be incorporated into my actual life (vs. the one I wish I were living...).

    If I'm remebering correctly, there are only one or two 3/32 CPM OS Ladyfingers in existence. I know @Warrior108 owns one of them.

    A while ago I went way back in the Fiddleback Fotki and only found a handful of stainless and guardless Ladyfingers. It's a rare one!

    I'd love to own one myself. Good luck. :thumbsup:

    I bought it in the 7/29/16 Friday Sale and then sold it to Phil @Comprehensivist in Jan '17. I'm pretty sure he sold it to someone else.

    Like he said, I think only a couple of those have been made.

    That's a beautiful F2 in the flea market. If I wasn't searching hard for a couple others right now I'd have to pick that up. I'm sure it won't last long.

    Good lord Jer. I really like my Forager but if I could change one thing it would have osage instead of evergreen burlap. The one you have on the market is just about perfect.

    It really is a sweet knife, and I'm torn about selling it, but just don't find myself using larger blades like this. It sure does put a smile on my face whenever I pick it up though :)
