Andy Roy has a unique way of blending style and function into his knives. The visual appeal makes you want to pick it up and the great feel of the knife makes you want to use it.
As a tool maker, Andy focuses a lot of effort on handle designs. His signature handle styles have really been a key part of his success as a knife maker. Andy focuses on making the most comfortable handle you've ever held. It is important to him that you can hold the knife in a variety of positions comfortably and do hard work with the blade for an extended period of time. He also is a firm believer that the handle has to index the knife in your hand, so that however you hold it, you will always know where the edge is without having to look. This is very important when doing work with a knife in areas where you cannot see the blade such as when reaching inside the body cavity of a large animal when field dressing it. The great handle function of Andy's knives works with his excellent blade designs to create a top performing cutting tool. Yes, Andy's knives look great, are comfortable to use and they perform great, but there's another important feature.... they are durable as well!
The antique looking blade finish you see is Fiddleback Forge's new blade treatment. After extensive research this proprietary process was finally perfected by Andy in the first quarter of 2011. The new finish is called 3D Spalted Steel, and it is only available on Fiddleback Forge knives!
Fiddleback Forge Knives began in 2007 as a hobby, but has since grown into a full time career for maker, Andy Roy. In 2010 he was honored to be inducted in the Georgia Knifemakers Guild.
It's clear that Andy is a true craftsman and takes great pride in his work. We are as pleased and excited to offer the Fiddleback Forge line of fine custom knives as you will be to own one!
A high quality belt sheath is included as shown in the picture.
Warranty Information: From Fiddleback Forge's website: Warranty- I back my knives with a satisfaction guarantee. When you get the knife it should make you happy. If it doesn't, return it in unused condition within the first month you own it. I'll refund your purchase price, plus shipping (domestic) back home to me when I receive the knife in unused condition. I guarantee my work to be free from mechanical defects under normal usage, and will repair or replace such a knife/problem as necessary as long as I remain able to make knives. Natural handle materials such as stag, bone, wood, pearl and ivory may shrink, crack, and/or discolor with change in temperature, or humidity or age. As this is normal, expected, and can normally be avoided with maintenance these issues would not be covered under this warranty.
