I Forge Iron

Walnut Skinner


Recommended Posts



This is a skinner that I made a couple of months ago. Full tang construction with walnut slabs and 1/4" brass screws from Pop's Knife Supply. Finished with Tung Oil.
The steel is from 3/16" Circular saw blade steel. Edge bevels are hand forged. It is flat ground to 400 grit then polished with buffing compound.
OAL: 9 3/4"
Blade length: 4 3/4"
Blade width at widest point: 1 9/16"

I was going to send this one off to a knife maker out west so he could have a look at it, but poor finances has hindered that. I found a local knife maker this past weekend that liked it.

I love using walnut. The first time I tried it I didn't think it would be very pretty until I put a coat of sanding sealer on it. Then suddenly the grain popped out and I saw just how pretty the handle was going to be.
