Good evening, all! I've just spent the better part of my evening perusing this thread and have been enjoying the photography and, more importantly, the knives. My apologies to those who have suffered my "like bombs", it is simply a tool to express my appreciation for your compositions and blades. @mistwalker, your references here and there to Tolkien and such has me intrigued and I'm looking forward to seeking out more of your writings throughout this sub. I do not own any Fiddleback knives yet but I have had the opportunity to handle many at a recent local gathering of fellow knife enthusiasts. I was and still am very impressed with such finely crafted cutlery and am very much looking forward to beginning my collection and Fiddleback enthusiasm. Though I do not have a true Fiddleback quite yet, I do have this recently acquired Fletcher that I've been very pleased with and I hope it's ok to post a pic of it here. If I understand correctly this knife could be considered Fiddleback kin. Looking forward to getting to know you folks better in the not so distant future.
