Knife 17 – Hunting-Skinning Knife with Wenge Scales

This was made as a hunting and skinning knife. The style was chosen for a couple of reasons. The bevel of the knife makes it easy to make. The curves could be easy made with my grinder, making the hand sanding to a minimum.

1084 steel

Wenge scales

Steel pins

Brass lanyard liner

Design Note: A Drop Point is the preferred knife blade for big game hunters. Drop Point blades are: durable, versatile, and effective at stabbing strikes. The Drop Point is easy to identify with a convex curve from the spine of the blade to the tip. This knife blade style is a great all-around design. A clip point knife is similar except the point has a dip in the drop.
