    Wanted to post this here as well for anyone who may have interest. Info below and updates will be posted on the Fiddleback subforum on BF.

    Admit it, whether you have one Fiddleback or fifty it is likely way too damn pretty. Try as you might, that patina just can’t get going and the edge just lasts for months and months without need for sharpening. Well, that all changes the weekend of May 5-7. Southern Gent Outdoors will be hosting the first Use Your Fiddleback Weekend at the Southern Gent farm located in Hiawassee, GA.

    The weekend will be packed with instruction, comradery and of course, plenty of Fiddleback use. Renowned instructors Kevin Estela and Brian Griffin will be sharing their vast knowledge in a hands on environment the like you will have never experienced and the Fiddleback crew will be there too. The cost per attendee will be $200 and with your contribution you will receive two days of instruction, meals, class materials and plenty of cold beer and cigars throughout the weekend. We’ll set up camp on site at the farm and tent for the weekend. A detailed suggested packing list will be provided.

    Since the mission of this weekend is to share knowledge in a small group and often in a one on one environment, the class size will be limited to 16 attendees. If anyone participating wants to bring a minor for the experience, the only requirement will be that the minor’s guardian take full responsibility and that they are capable of carrying and handling a knife on their own.

    We are planning the weekend with the attendees’ interests in mind, so the final schedule will be based upon the feedback of those attending. Topics that may be covered, but not limited to are: 72 hour survival, fire making techniques, land navigation, edible plants, knife sharpening techniques, making primitive weapons, improvised tools, knots, ditch medicine, spoon carving, ect.

    More details to follow as there will be many additions to share in the upcoming weeks and I plan on adding more to the pot to make this an unforgettable experience as we get closer to the weekend. Feel free to reach out if you have any particular questions regarding the weekend.

    Cheers,

    Justen
