    I feel we have a STRONG community here and want to provide a place for everyone to “Hangout”. This is the thread to talk about anything you would like, It does not have to be Fiddleback related but that is always a good thing!

    -If you got a new knife and want to share…..Post It up
    -Just picked up some new gear….Post it up
    -Have some awesome “yoda” tactics like fogdart….Let us know
    -Found the most awesome “doohickey”.....Tell us about it
    -Had a crappy day….Someone can probably relate…

    Post up and hopefully this will provide better insight to each of the members here and further the awesomeness of this place ya’ll created.

    This is a great thread Phil. I predict this will become one of the most popular threads on the forum. :)

    This is a Cold Steel Pipe Hawk that I customized for a buddy of mine as a gift. (vinegar dipped, file worked and re-fit the head, sanded,burned then treated the haft, added the 2 cord wraps, sharpened the factory edge) It was a cool project to try. I made some mistakes but I thought it came out pretty good. Yes the chopped pieces in the pic were done with the Hawk. :)
