Been a while, new skinner

http://www.knifenetwork.com/forum/al...pictureid=4436

It's been a while since I've made anything, been having to focus on my daughter and my career. Now I'm back at it and this is my first knife since I've started back. It's a 3" blade of 1095 with a Japanese styled dyed and stabilized burl handle of an unknown wood.

Looks like a solid working knife for more than just skinning, nice spear/drop? point and good grind with a small guard not overdone. Very nice. It's the kind I would make for myself except maybe the blue handle.lol

I modified the blade shape from a small semi-skinner design I have made for a long time.
I made it for a guy that makes custom cigar cases. He provided the wood. Not my style either but I like how it turned out.

I like it. Simple, no nonsense working knife with a very workable size blade. Utilitarian but not blah plain. that knife is great for most chores up to and including field dressing from trout to deer. Did I say I like it?
