Antlered Forge Welded Cable Skinner

Recommended Posts

Just finished my second forged cable knife.

A coworker wanted a skinner with an elk tine to help with skinning. This one is forges out of the same cable that's seen in the pictures. The spacer between the blade and the antler is also from the forge welded cable. I scribed it to the antler so it would be the same shape and varied contour of the antler as well.

The blade was normalized three times then heated to non mag and then just a little more and quenched in heated canola oil. Tempering was two times at 450 for an hour each time.

the only issue I had was the area just below the crow stamp. I couldn't remove the forge markers without going too thin.

it came out very hard and razor sharp!

Thanks for looking.
