Three small skinner knives I recently put handles on. The woods used from top to bottom are padauk, purpleheart and verawood. I made the pins out of brass tubing. And on the verawood knife I filled the pins with a turquoise/epoxy mix. I finished with a paste wax then buffed them out with a buffing wheel on a drill.

The blades are about 2.5ā€ long. Overall length is 6ā€. Iā€™m still learning and practicing with different woods for the handles and plan on trying to make blades I design in the future.

I plan on selling these three along with custom made leather sheaths as soon as I figure out how to price them.

I appreciate any and all feedback.

OldWrangler makes a lot of knives. You might look him up. He might be able to help.

Nice work! I just completed one with some Wenge handles. I used some Mosaic pins at two positions. I have one waiting for Purpleheart handles. I do like the color of your top knife. Congrats.
