Fiddleback Forge Chief Knife - Model Info

The Fiddleback Forge Chief is a full-sized 4" bladed knife. The Chief was designed in response to customers wanting a lower priced workhorse from Fiddleback. It's designed as a no frills, down & dirty style handmade knife. By stripping the knife down to bare necessities, it allows Fiddleback Forge to put out a high-quality product at a dramatically lower price point than their other handmade models. It's meant to put in all the work, with little of the guilt when you scratch it up.

The Chief is the largest of the trio of knives that includes the mid-sized Shaman and the little Pygmy models.

If you're looking for your first handmade, here's the best point of entry!

Sheath sold separately.
