    Relatively new here, but suspect you’ll have to wait for Vance to post the preview tomorrow morning (Friday) followed by the actual sales thread a bit later in the day.

    Apologies if this is a dumb question but, in the context of Fiddleback Forge, what are “custom shop models”?

    The Customs are all hand made in-house, usually with A2 steel and with custom scales/handles. Most are Convex, some are Scandi.

    Then there are production models which (I believe) are made up externally built-to-spec parts, usually with S35VN steel and with basic canvas micarta scales/handles that are held in place with hardware. These are flat ground.
    Take a look at this Outpost Link to see an example of the production Kephart field knife
    https://fiddlebackoutpost.com/collections/fiddlebackforge/products/kephart


    To get a Custom Shop, they take one of the production model S35VN blades, usually do a regrind on it and do hand-made scales/handles on it. A nice Custom Shop Kephart can be found in this thread
    https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/fiddleback-friday-1-27-2017.1465783/
    2017 0127 11 Custom Shop Kephart w/ navy burlap over black liners & orange pinstripes, SFT, Convex on 1/8"; S35VN - $265SOLD!
