    I almost lost a finger when I was 9 years old and have like the lock back type of knife. You can work the blade to whatever you like it to be.

    Rough sanding all done.
    A lot of firsts for me here.
    First hidden tang, first stack leather handle and first peened end cap.
    So far, so good.

    I've Used The Boning Knife
    As My All-Round Outdoors Knife For Over 20yrs Now
    It Hones Out Hyper-Sharp
    And Once The Blade Was Seasoned
    It Seems Impervious To Rust
    I Made A Scandinavian Style Sheath For It
    Where Only An 1 1/2" Of The Handle Is Exposed

    Used To Buy Them In The Utility Sections At Supermarkets
    Have To Get Them On-Line Now
    I Have 5 Of The 4" Paring Knives
    I'm Making Bone Handles For Neck Knives For The Boys In The Family
    Maybe They'll Put Down Those Damned Video Games
    And Go Outside Once In A While

    The best sheath I've ever had is the old style Buck 103 skinner.
    [​IMG]

    It hangs low on the belt with barely 1cm protruding above the belt and completely prevents the handle snagging branches or vines in this sort of bush.

    Nice work. Not that I could ever see myself using that style knife.
