I may finish this one out for my KITH.
Here is one of my EDC knives. It may be closer to your liking. A little over 7 inches overall. Made from 1084, differential heat treat with polished hamon. I applied clear KG Gun-Koat which will keep it rust resistent for years and prevent blood and animal fat from sticking to the blade. Handle is Rosewood with multiple coats of Birchwood Casey’s Tru-Oil finish. What do you guys think finish the skinner or this one?
That is a funny story. It was intended to have two pins and no lanyard hole but stupid me forgot to drill the holes before HT so right where I would put the front pin was not covered by clay so its way too hard there to drill. So I added the lanyard to serve as a second pin. It does look funny so I will just keep this one and make another for KITH because I do not like the skinner either.
