The Hiking Buddy is one Fiddleback’s oldest patterns and has been in production for over six years. During that time, it has remained one of the most popular and functional models among avid outdoor enthusiasts, including campers and hunters. Like the other Fiddleback Forge Field Knives, it is made of rugged, superior materials that truly set it apart from similar models. This knife is perfect for small cutting chores during a hiking trip, from slicing to making snacks along the trail, or light food prep on an over-nighter. Besides the advantage of having a fixed blade that will not close on your fingers like a folding knife can, you can prepare messy food with no worries of it getting stuck into nooks and crannies in the knife handle. There is no argument that a fixed blade on a belt is far more hygienic than a folded blade in a pocket.
As with all Fiddleback Forge Field Knives, this knife is a "mid-tech" production knife that features precision, pre-machined parts hand assembled and tooled by the Fiddleback Forge artisans to produce a knife engineered for hard work.
This knife is designed to be lightweight and portable to ease the weight load on long hiking trips, but large enough to pitch in when larger tasks arise.
A top quality, leather sheath with belt loop is included, crafted by JRE Industries.
