FIDDLEBACK FORGE - Arete
The Arete is a very popular Fiddleback Forge model. It's an ideal small to medium-sized bushcraft knife with a handle that's as comfortable as they get. The spear point blade is great for drilling and piercing tasks. Whether you are making tent stakes, fuzz sticks or just whittling a stick, the Arete will handle that and more with comfort and efficiency. It also works great for field dressing large game animals. It would be a great addition to any knife collection as well.
