Plan to keep this one but you never know about these things. 6 1/4" overall and 2 7/8" tip to scales. I made the blade made from Alabama Damascus Redneck Skin and heat treated and tempered it to HRC 60. Scales are stabilized weathered Elk antler with red liners. There's even some file work on the spine under the scales. Basket weave tooled sheath finishes things off.

That’s one beautiful knife Mike. I’ve been enjoying that bullnose Damascus I got from you. Great work as always.

Well guys I managed to talk Mike out of this one. He made a couple of skinners for my nephews a few years ago and I wanted my brother to have one of Mike's knives, too. Feel very lucky that this came together. Thanks again, Mike.

I have had several of Mikes knives. Make great gifts in addition to being very useful tools.
