My presence has been pretty scarce around here this summer. Busy traveling, working, wedding planning, and having fun! Hopefully I'll find some time in the coming weeks to check in more regularly, and if I'm lucky one of those will be with a trip report about our archery elk hunt! In a week we will be heading into the mountains to spend 9 days chasing elk with our bows. Most of the nights will be spent in a base camp, but we will probably also "spike camp" for a couple nights. I'm working on my packing list and I'm having a tough time deciding which knife to bring... So, Fiddleback friends which one of my knives should I take with me? It will be used for part of the elk field dressing, grouse cleaning, and any knife related camp tasks. Here are the contenders: Fiddleback Family Knives Fiddleback OS Ladyfinger Fiddleback F2 Osprey K&T Warthog Fletcher Pro 6-5, my first Blade Show knife Non-Fiddleback Family Knives (I figure posting here a Fiddleback Family knife will win, but I like sharing pictures of my knives so might as well! ) Wanta Forge Small Puukko GiantMouse GMF2 (another blade show purchase that I haven't put to good use yet! Or taken good pictures of...) Cast your votes! One of these knives will join me and my Tyto 1.1 replaceable blade knife (my main big game processing knife) in the elk woods. You have until next Thursday to help me choose one! I'll post some better pictures of the Fletcher and GiantMouse this weekend. Here's the Tyto again since I've mentioned a couple times. If everything goes right I'll have a bunch more pictures to share of the winning knife with an elk!
