As far as I know - Far as I know



We all know the phrase "As far as I know".
Nonetheless, does the variation "Far as I know exist?
I do not remember where I read it, but I did read it somewhere.

What´s your opinion?

    In fast natural speech, I can imagine it sounding like "sfar as I know", but 'far as I know' is not something I've seen, or would expect to see, in writing.

    Agreed. "As" in that spot is commonly left out in casual speech but wouldn't be left out in formal speech or writing. It could be included in writing as a character's dialog (natural speech).

    I think it would mostly be used as a short answer, even in casual speech.

    - Is he coming tonight?
    + Far as I know.
    - What did you say?
    + I said as far as I know he's coming tonight.
