This is a set I made for myself. I just started making knives, to go along with my woodworking and hunting hobbies. This set is stainless with ebony handles.

Nice job, I like the one on the left, it looks like it would be a great skinner. The other does too but I’ve never been a fan of larger knives for skinning.Great looking handles!

Those look like they would add more stiches to my hands. LOL! Nice set!

Just curious, is there a reason for the curved shape of the blade?

Very nice. They look like good sharp tools. I’ve only made one knife handle and it was trickier than I thought.

Mostly just for the way I wanted them to look. The bigger was designed to be like an Ulu knife but I wanted a regular handle. The smaller is meant to more of a caping knife, though I tend to use the smaller for all the cleaning.

Greg, Making a similar set added six stitches to my hand when I thoght I was in too much of a hurry to use a clamp when I was drilling. I haven’t made that mistake since, so I guess I can still learn.

That’s great making your own knives. You get them just the way you like.
I’ve re handled a few knives. Mostly all with elk or deer stag. Don’t make them yet, but on my bucket list.
Tape those blades up while working….......
