    Hey Guys, Just competed a new skinner with gut hook.
    still using oak as scale...I like the rustic look.
    the pins are needle brass pins.
    Thank god for the good old dremel for making the hook part.
    Hope you guys like it.
    cheers

    I personally am not a fan of any knife with a gut hook. However there is nothing that I can say that is bad about it I just don't like gut hooks.
    Good job
    :)

    I'll agree with Jason that they look rather silly, but there is no arguing their utility. That's why I'll be packing a knife with a gut hook on my next hunt.

    That blade you made, Peter... It's so homely looking with that Oak scale that it's beautiful in its own right. I like it!

    I agree with both of you...just the term gut hook sounds like something out of a horror movie...I like to think of it more as a rope cuter! :)

    Gut hook would terrify me to use, but even still nice work!

    Good job, not the easiest of things to get right.
    Will you have a chance to try it out?

    Nice knife
    I've only done one with a gut hook and will not do any more.

    I'm with you Kevin, I did one once and swore I'd never do one again.

    But it's a really nice knife Peter. Very well done. Am I seeing a spacer between the scale and the tang or is it wood grain?

    Hi Krash, Thank you, what your seeing is the grain, no spacers used. I used a torch to burn the wood and make the grain pop.
