    Here is a skinner i just finished up for my neighbors fathers birthday. Knife is 1084 and measures 7 inches long, 3.5 inch blade, and blade is 2 inches wide at the widest point. It is hand sanded to 2000 and mirror polished. Handle material is Redwood lace burl with blue G10 spacers and 1/8 copper pins. Wade is an avid hunter and loves bear hunting so his daughter asked me to make him something for skinning bears and other game. Some of these pictures aren't great as i was having trouble getting decent pics today. As always comments and criticism welcome. The knife has not been sharpened yet in these photos.

    Thanks for the comments guys. The 1084 is coming from Rob at knifemaker.ca and the wood i have been using comes from bad dogs burl source out of the states.

    Nicely done! Even though I don't hunt, I can see it looks really comfortable to hold.

    Thanks Myth. The design is quite comfortable for a large range of hand sizes and works well in a standard style grip, but where it really seams to shine is in a sort of side grip / pinch grip, that myself and others i know regularly use for skinning. The grip is hard to explain to those who have not used it or dont do much skinning, but thats the grip style it was designed around.
