My third knife a gift for my buddy

Recommended Posts

So this is my third knife. Hit me with corrective advice. 1058 steel hardened up great. Poplar handle. All I had. Sharp as all get out. My buddy hunts so I figured he needed a good skinner type knife. Anyways have at it.

Seems to be somewhat different from the proportions that I would have used (the blade seems a little wide for the length), but it looks pretty well done, though I think that 120 is still a bit coarse.  So the title says it's your third knife, where are the first two so we can see progress?

just as a design comment from one who has skinned many animals,  it might have been better to leave the back straight and bring the edge back to it. this would have allowed for more useable tip space without that pointy tip risking messy organ punctures. looks great though.

look like it'll work just fine , good job, nice thing about knife making is your options are endless and so are designs...........

you'll always get opinions , to wide to big to fat to small to long to short........so just make what you like and what feels good to you.....forge on !  good work !
