Fiddleback Forge was started by Andy Roy in his garage in 2007. What began as a passion project quickly graduated to a real business in May of 2009 when Andy was laid off from his job as an antenna engineer. With his new basement shop, he began turning out 6 knives per week and was able to make ends meet.
More than a decade after Andy's first knife was made from a file and some leftover hickory was made in his garage, Fiddleback Forge is housed in a professional shop with several full-time employees & apprentices. The current operation has successfully created thousands of beautiful handmade knives. In addition to the beloved handmade models, there's been countless Mid-Tech Production Field Knives made.
