Thanks guys. This knife will only have one purpose that is to remove the skin from the fillet. Very flexible which should make removing the skin easy. The Olive wood handled knife has less flex and will be used to do the rough cleaning chores. I knife for every purpose!

Sometimes you just have to do something different. Today I was chopping vegetables for a camping trip and I thought that it would be nice to have a kitchen knife for the event. So I dug through my box of old half finished knives and found one that I had started about 15 years ago. It was from an old band saw blade that was at the local sawmill. I left the pits and scratches on it, ground an edge and gave it a plain wooden handle. The wood was from a local Locust tree. I used a light brown leather dye on the wood and then sealed it. The rivets are brass bolt style. The blade is 5 inches long with an overall of 9 inches.

Here is the last of the three large skinning knives. I finished it last week. It is ground from the same 1/8" thick D2 as the other two. The elk antler was from another animal though. This antler was from a piece that sat out in the woods longer and showed more signs of age. I thought that it made for some nice character. The bolsters are dovetailed stainless and the rivets are brass bolt style. This time I decided to make the sheath myself. The knife was given to a teenage boy who just lost his father to MS.
