    Here is a knife a finished up for a friend, he sent me a picture of it a few days later covered in moose blood.

    01 tool steel, Elk antler, ebony, and brass

    Very nice package!

    Do you find the brass scuffs easy?

    Nice work! I like that little band of ebony in there for contrast and the brass polished up well.

    But didn't we all want to see it covered in moose blood? LOL

    Nice looking little skinner.
    Some hunters just like small knives, other guys want something a foot long.

    Most guys who have asked me to make them a skinner want a drop point blade about 3 to 3 1/2 inches in length. Haven't been asked to put a gut hook on any of them yet, though. Really nice job on the knife and the sheath, Mark.

    You had me until I saw the gut hook. The design and workmanship is beautiful though.

    A gorgeous knife indeed!
    Newbie question if I may, gut hook? hard to do?
    Asking because I have one to do and wanted some tips from a pro.

    It's just a single backward facing serration with a hook. Try to copy that one in the pic on a piece of mild steel, if it looks the exact same it will function the same way.
