Default She Needs A Handle!!



I've had this blade for who knows how long! But she's needing a handle and I'm posting her up to start getting some inputs! Hopefully the tape measurer will help in giving you an idea of the blade's length. So start pushing up those recommendations! Can't wait to see how she turns out once a handle choice has been made!!

If Frontloader was still around, he sure could have made that into a real pretty skinner. Bob

Well the knife handle is finished and I just received it in the mail! Jacob Bennett of Shared Obsession TV put on a beautiful osage wood handle! What I can't wait for is the darkening effect osage has while it ages!! The rounding on this handle fits into my hand very snugly and I can't wait to put it to work on some skinning!!

Check out the stellar before-n-after pics!!
