    I guess this is a model I have never seen from this angle. I'm drawing a blank on what it is.

    Okay cool thanks. I was right, I've never seen that handle at that angle. I was thinking that was likely it, or maybe a one off.

    I have my Esquire in a ISP sheath today.
    One of my absolute favorite ways to carry a smaller fixed blade.
    It’s just like reaching in for a folder, but instead I’m pulling out a nice fixed blade Fiddleback!
    An easy transition coming from years of folder pocket carry.

    The one that every custom is compared to and hasn't matched!

    My very first Official Andy Roy Fiddleback Forge is this very fine & sublime SHOGUN :thumbsup: :cool:

    What a perfectly beautiful and comfortable knife. Features, spectacular ergos, awesomely useful blade shape (aka, "Nessmukie/Kwaiken" - from the intro video ;)). I love that it has no colored liners - just a lovely black on shimmery teal maple. Super sharp - you all know that. AND look - tapered tang.

    Very, very nicely done AR. My first Fiddleback is a solid winner. :thumbsup:

    Now - off to get this one properly dressed to carry out into the world :)

    Thanks much.

    I love the look of the Shogun, but am more drawn to its little brother for EDC, but so many new models there are a few I want to try.

    Respectfully @B Griffin, to my way of seeing - the SHOGUN - is the intended proportions for this blade (the Golden mean, you might say). The EMPEROR & the DAIMYO are respectively, just a little too big and a little too small.

    The SHOGUN is jusssssst right :thumbsup: :)

    3-5/8" blade is a fine EDC size IMHO. I'm glad we have choices ;)

    I get that, and yeah thank God for choices lol. There was a time when a knife that size would have been a fine EDC for me, and I do love the attitude of the Shogun aesthetically. I do hope to play with one some day. I could get away with it occasionally now, and in the colder season, but not all days of my life. These days the slightly smaller Bushboot, with a nearly half inch shorter blade and almost an inch shorter overall, maxes me out for pocket carry in my daily life now. While still giving me the function and attitude I want to have in a pocket knife. I usually have some things bigger and meaner near by in a kit, but for on-the-body-carry now the smaller models do better for me these days. So I want to check out a Daimyo to pair with my two-piece Ti chopsticks because i think they will go well together :)

    Stag and Rustic Wraps look at home together.
