In His Own Words
KI: Andy Roy, with over 90 models in your lineup, what makes the Bush Hermit stand out?
AR: I think the Bush Hermit stands out because the curves on the bottom of the handle accommodate large hands very well. This open-handle design on the underside can accept more fingers when you’re gripping on it. It won’t spin in your hand.
KI: What attributes make your blades suitable for the hunter?
AR: I think the convex grind excels at hunting and game prep tasks. In addition to this, my knives feature ergonomic handles. This means a hunter can index the knife in hand and always know the location of the edge.
KI: Hunting can be hard on a blade, what should the user avoid doing with your knives that isn’t normal “wear and tear”?
AR: A knife is not a pry bar, and my knives are not throwing tools. While I don’t consider batoning abuse, it can easily break a blade when done incorrectly.
KI: Pick two other blades to complement the Bush Hermit, GO!
AR: I sell a lot of larger and smaller knives to complement the Bush Hermit. To make a Nessmuk trio from Fiddleback, try using our 12-inch machete (best machetes in the world) and a Handyman. With those three knives, there is little a smart woodsman couldn’t accomplish.
