    It really is a sweet knife. Good size, but not so large that it doesn't handle like a smaller knife. The handle is cool, and I find it comfortable for the most part. The sharp edges on the butt can dig into your hand when you choke back on it, but it looks awesome so I over look it. He has some good designs and definitely worth a look. He does not have a website setup and mostly operates on his BF subforum at: http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/forumdisplay.php/928-Osprey-Knife-amp-Tool

    You can also catch him on instagram @ospreyknifeandtool

    He doesn't take orders for the most part, but if you contact him with a specific interest he might squeeze a custom order into his schedule. It's Thursday, he should be having a sale tonight for a handful of knives at 9PM est on his forum

    Some Bushboot porn. This model has been around for some time and is still one of the better EDC knives from the Fiddleback lineup. Good overall size in both blade length and handle as not to be awkward as the smaller Runt size knives can sometimes be and not too large that it's bulky clipped inside a pocket.

    That Bushboot is sweet! Looks like the perfect size for edc. I have been wanting to find one for a while. Maybe I'll be lucky and find the one by Christmas.

    That is a nice looking knife. Just not quite what I'm after. For this one I'm looking for something in canvas or a dark wood.

    Black g10 with a swedge would be amazing on a Bush boot.

    That navy Esquire you have looks great and I can only assume that model makes a really nice edc. Funny, it is one Fiddleback I have yet to try

    Some pics of the Fiddleback Bullfrog Bowie. A niche knife for sure by Andy, and not too many have been made. It's a kukri-like Bowie badass. The handle is pretty comfortable, I wish it were a bit fatter, but the bocote is nice on this knife. Good feel, good balance, and a handle that locks into your hand. I don't pull this one out often, but it makes me smile whenever I do

    Man I love it when you pull out the Bullfrog. I knew it was destined to be yours when I first saw it at the shop. Now I'm just waiting around for one to come out that I can snag myself.

    It would look amazing in African black wood, straight grain IW, or marbled carbon fiber. The Bocote isn't too bad either.

    Didn't I tell ya. Used to practically keep my ESEE 6 under my pillow, but once I got the Duke and used it for awhile I did the same.

    That machete is badass. I must have one. But first... I must accumulate money.
