4” Skinner

Nice little skinner.


I noticed in the top picture that you have the same issue I get sometimes with a little uptick in the plunge cut at the ricasso (and on the same side of the blade as I get). For the life of me I can't figure out what I'm doing differently between the grinding on each side and how to stop it. It doesn't make a big deal to me at the moment because I usually take all my blades to a full flat grind, but it is annoying when it happens and I have to correct it.

This usually happens to me on the disc.  I typically also take it up , but when I want to leave that little flat line along the spine, I take it out by hand with 220.


Nice looking knife Eric. I'm not terribly fond of the blade finish, but that handle came out great. nice positioning with that crown to get the bird beak shape.

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

Thanks Joshua! There are things I would change if it had been for myself, satin flats and bevels being chief among them. 

Of the whole build though, I am happiest with how the handle turned out.


He also wanted a kydex sheath, but I think I may make a leather sheath as well. I really think the leather will compliment it better
