I Forge Iron

Tactical Skinner (pic heavy)

Recommended Posts

Here’s a recent custom knife I made for a friend.  All stock removal except initially bending the stock to make the design fit.  1095 and canvas micarta. Going to a seasoned cowboy who primarily needs something to slash through bailing wire.

Thats a solid user!  The materials 1095 and canvas micarta are nearly indestructable....and You got a nice design with a pleasing agressive tension in the spine line.

....and a nice form on the handle as well....

I see You had or maybe had some struggle with the blade finish....a bit too uneven and coarse, but maybe You wanted it that way because the finish is first to be ruined on a user that will see field action....cutting through hay wire a sheepfoot blade came immediately to my mind....but sheepfoots are not the blade forms that win the beauty contest and that curved skinner is much more attractive ....and with its large belly this blade will get the job done pretty well.

Cool knife!:)
