With archery season right around the corner and I’m chomping at the bit to get in the stand; skinners have been on my mind. I make the 105 series knives skinners and decided I’d do a variation of them and came up with this design. This was the first one and it sold in minutes after posting it. This first one I made with Kingwood (rosewood) handles, I have two more that I intend to finish up today, probably use spalted hackberry on one and not sure yet on the other one yet. I think it’s going to be a good seller for me this year. It’s 9” OAL with a 4 ½ cutting edge 80crv2 with a high hollow ground, satin finish.

I like that profile. It kinda has an old-school "Buffalo Skinner" feel to it. Great Job!

80crv2 seems to be increasing in popularity as it becomes better understood and more well known. What's your take on the steel?

The only draw back with 80crv2 is normalizing it three times, even with stock removal most others you don't have to.. It's tough steel and sure gaining in popularity.

Mikei; I've been selling my high carbon steel knives with sheaths for $ 230.00 on the hunt forums, my website they start at $250.00 unless I have to buy some specific handle material.

I'll have a couple of more done tomorrow (Wednesday)
