    Well guys, here it is, the eagle skinner.
    This one was a fun one to make, and to top it of I finally made it to Burlington and got some nice wood for the scales.
    so break down of the skinner.
    O1 steel
    skinner template from our friend Dan Da man!
    scales: Zebra wood.
    engraving took about 5 hours taking all in to account, setting up to finish.
    the H.T. left behind enough discoloration to add some definition to the engraving .
    Hope you guys like it.
    comments and critiques very welcome!
    Cheers

    I was actually thinking of setting a gem stone in the eye!
    this is the final result...

    Looking good, should be okay if not used as a hammer.

    Very cool. How are you holding the stone in.

    Hey Icho, I got some bevel setting rings from Michaels, made a recess hole and they had some type of gem glue to hold down the bevel.
    once dry you put the gem in and close the bevel around it.
