    Fall giveaway

    I’m watching my heat treat oven go up in temp with 5 blades in it. Mill this over and post a shout.
    Damascus, AEBL, or 154cm blade.
    Drop point, semi skinner, or clip point.
    Handle material is my choice but will be nice.
    Post it up!

    I'd be interested in seeing the most recent pictures of your work! No point in teasing us just a little bit...have to go the full monty! *Edited to add that I Googled your knives, and they look most impressive.

    My next knife will definitely have to have some skinning attributes. Two deer last year with a made in China fillet knife and their cheap steel left it looking more like a bread knife when I was done.

    Here is one in action. Three of us skinned 5 elk.
    Mikes blade was still sharp at the end of the chore.

    My problem is I’m horrible at sharpening knives. I have several buck knives, skinners and general utility pocket knives that couldn’t cut water. They collect dust in dresser drawer now. I’ve tried many times to sharpen them with a variety of gadgets but again I’m horrible at it. That’s the one thing keeping me from getting a nice knife.

    You need to find you a diamond Lansky sharpener. Blade held in a holder and the rods with diamond grits can be changed from side to side. You can go 30,20,18
    degrees for whatever angle you want to get you a super edge.
