Just finished this Skinner / Bird knife for a friend. He wanted it kind on plain but I think he'll like it. Amboyna with brass pins and liners.

1095 High Carbon, clay quenched in water
Overall length 8 in.
Blade cutting edge 3 5/8 in.
Acrylic Stabilized Amboyna Burl
brass pins brass liners
Handmade leather sheath
Screaming sharp!

Sometimes simple is elegant. I wouldn't minde something similar, in maybe a 4" to 4.5" blade for skinning varmints and deer sized game. I probably don't have the dough for a full on custom job like that though.

Nice work.

you can see that little hamon line in the blade. I etched it in ferric chloride to bring it out. All the blades I make are not for the weak lol. They average .200 thick

that's pretty mild compared to most Amboyna. I have some other stuff you won't believe. It's expensive wood but I think some of the most awesome stuff you can buy.

I agree with SSGN. It's simple, but definitely elegant. Beautiful work Dan.

Nothing pleases me more than to see that great little hamon line too...you just don't see that work done much anymore and a lot of folks don't understand what it means. IT'S BEAUTIFUL KNIFE ~ WELL DONE!

I'd keep that one.
