This is one of my new skinner I put together. I still have a little finishing to do (going to etch it ( have to make up a makers mark) and need to put a finish on the handle).

Looks nice. Next time think about etching before you add the scales. Makes the job much easier

Looks pretty good. [thumbsup]
Next one you make, try making the blade with more belly and less drop in the spine. I think it would be more ergonomic to use for skinning.
This one looks like it'd be a real good leather working knife.
