Is a real unique skinner knife.:)

The preliminary sharpness was enough to get me. I don't over sharpen the knives.. I send them sharp but not SHARP.. Felt really good with the finger on the blade..

My first thought looking at the title was "Timken is still made in the US?" ;) Nice Work! :) What material are the rivets made from? Hard to tell with camera color chameleonism...

Reminds me I have an integral I started to make that I put a dog leg in so it would have a wood scale on one side and the metal tang on the other. I didn't like how the transitions were coming out when I started grinding and it got stuck in cabinet.

Thanks Matt, took me years to figure it out in a way that would satisfy me..

The idea of having the blade to 1 side did not strike me as desirable..

the next one will be easier..
