Here's what I've been up to. *pic heavy*

I haven't been on in a while.  Been hugely busy with work and play.  I've been doing some hoof rasp knives for friends and family.  Not the best work in the world, but its something handy and hand-made.

The little twisted-all-metal knife turned out to be a pretty decent little skinner.  Went through a whitetail deer's hide and sternum like butter and held a good edge.  I love the little loop on the end.  When not in use, it hangs on the gambrel perfectly.  Its not pretty...just a knock up first try at that style.

Used hoof rasps.  The fellow that wanted the two rasp knives gave me his grandfather's old double length hoof rasp.  Probably over 100 years old.  Really tough stuff.  After heat treating and tempering, they really took a nice edge.  I love the first one the most, too.  It really turned out to be a nice knife IMO.
