My friend Roy gave me a very large Redwood round. I in turn made him a stubby skinner for everyday carry. The handle is Manzanita.

Although I do forge my own knives and make my own handles – this blade is from Texas Knife Maker. I added the handles from scrap wood in my shop.

Looks great. The one you posted earlier is also a very nice knife.
Was the blade a blank or did you still have to shape it?

That blade is also from Texas Knife Maker, ready to use. I do forge and grind my own knives but the two knives I posted today were gifts and I needed a quick turn around.

This is a beautiful knife. He should be very satisfied with that piece.

Thx. He’s a great friend entering in to the last months of his life. I just wanted to give him a small token of my appreciation.
