    I really like the tapered tang on the Fiddlebacks. Something else to add to my "buy list."

    Chris (former apprentice under Andy, working out of the Fiddleback Forge sweat shop in GA) has a batch of 3 knives going up at 9 tonight on his 'osprey knife and tool' subforum at that other place.

    Here is a Mamushi from him in lightning strike carbon fiber over thunderstorm kevlar

    Hello everyone. Perhaps one of you experienced Fiddlers could help me out. I purchased a Kephart that will be shipped out next week and I need a quick sheath for it. Eventually I wanna have something legit made for it but no doubt I wanna carry the knife when I get it. Sooooo can anyone tell me if a sharp shooter sheath will work for said knife? I have had a couple for Esee 3's and they were pretty decent for the price. Thanks in advance y'all.

    Honestly, I'd just go straight to the leather worker of your choice and get what you want if you intend to buy a custom sheath later. You could probably contact Rick Lowe today and have something to you not too far after your new Kephart arrives - he also has a basic line that is not much more than the JRE/mass produced sheaths. Unless you desire a custom wetforming, he has most if not all of the common profiles. If you are asking if the 4" profile will fit one of the Sharpshooter sheaths that you already own, I can't be of any help there.

    If you don't have a specific design in mind for a sheath, check out Fiddlebackoutpost.com for in stock custom sheaths ready to ship. I believe Jou'Fuu aka/Bud has his own website with sheaths up for sale as they are made. Kniveshipfree also has some sheaths and can probably point you into a basic sheath that they include with Fiddleback purchases from them. Condos Leather is another option if you want to work out a specific design.

    The 4" knives are nice, one sheath from some of these guys can cover a range of profiles.

    My first Fiddle came in today. Hopefully I'll get a chance to get some pics tomorrow. Or later today I should say.
