    I’ve handled the fixed blade version. Not 100% happy with the design but unbelievably good value for money.

    Now I have a pair of Hiking Buddies from Fiddleback Forge
    Pair2.jpg
    Specs:
    185mm (7.29") OAL, 80mm (3.15") blade, 3mm (1/8") A2 steel, plain edge, skeletonised full tang.
    Handles are about 18mm (3/4") thick
    The top one is ruby burlap micarta with black bolsters, with a pancake style Ambush Forest sheath.
    The bottom one is sunburst jade. It's matched with a Diomedes Xcarry Earl sheath.

    Now begins the dilemma - which one to take along on any given hike?

    Darn nice looking pair. Is that bearing in the back of the handle?

    Looks like it, eh? No, it's Fiddleback Forge's trademark "bullseye" lanyard hole.
    According to their BaldeForum page:
    "Note: “Spalted™” is a trademark of Fiddleback Forge, Inc. representing its proprietary steel finish. “Bullseye™“ is a trademark of Fiddleback Forge, Inc. representing its lanyard tube design."
    Odd that they can claim spalted as a trademark, too.

    I tend to loose track of these threads after a while, so please excuse if you have seen my knives already.

    A couple of Dewey blades I bought at a gunshow many years ago

    IMG_4728_2.jpg

    The larger is a 5 and a half inch drop point, rather heavy and sturdy. Very comfortable grip with a nice thumb indetation for pushing down hard. The top of the blade is slightly bevelled off to help with slicing.

    The smaller is a capeing knife which I have only used a couple of times with a deer hunting friend years ago.

    Handy little knife and I like the pouch with its securing strap. No chance of losing the knife in heavy scrub.
