    I've included a link to the HB I'm referring to (it's from 2011)
    https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/a-batch-of-sets-available-knives.879311/.
    I ended up with the 1/8 Scandi pictured and wouldn't mind finding the thick handled convex to compliment it.

    I reached out to the original purchaser, and to the person to whom he sold it, but the trail runs cold after that but was told that it was sold for a third time in 2014.

    I would love to get it in my hands.
    If you have the convex HB referenced or know who does have it, please contact me!

    Thanks to those who have helped me thus far, and thanks for reading! 20110902102_4468-vi.jpg 20110902102_4466-vi.jpg

    I had the convex one, it was sort of a match to my first Bushboot, but it got sold during the Michigan debacle and the early days of me trying to get separated from both my former brother (alleged business partner) and my former wife (alleged life partner). I hope now that has been accomplished I can put my life back together. I think I may have sold the HB to Shamrock but to be honest most of that time period is a blur of me trying to make it through it without shooting my wife and/or my brother who were both screwing with mine and my daughter's lives very badly, just in different ways. Honestly I'm surprised I'm not in a penitentiary somewhere, but I'm not surprised I can't remember who I sold what to. I have sold more of my things the last 7 years than I care to remember, so I tend to just repress it I guess...

    If anyone has any leads on the knife pictured (or any older thick-handled fiddleback HB) please let me know.

    Did you find what you were looking for? That's a good looking set! A friend likes turning Bloodwood on the lathe. I saw the pictures and it reminded me of some of his turnings.

    Hi Andy, do you have any thick-handled, convex-grind fiddlebacks in your collection you would part with? I'm looking for one to complement the scandi and find your thick handles the most comfortable. Please let me know!

    I'm glad you like the bloodwood I sold you, it does feel great in the hand.
