goblin skinner

Post by hellize » Sat Nov 21, 2020 8:56 pm

Hello,


I have a little necker today.
It is 18 cm/ 7 inch long, the blade is 8 cm/ 3.15 inch long, 33 mm/ 1.3 inch wide. It is forged of L6 and 5160. The handle is made of deer antler and leather disks.
The sheath is made of 4 mm/ 0.16 inch thick, sturdy cowhide.

Handy little fellow and ideal companion for longer walks in the forest or on mountain hikes. Helpful at peeling an apple, when you sit on a fallen tree trunk at lunch time, while goblins are lurking behind you in the bushes. Carving stuff into a stick to pass time in the hung up cage waiting for the water to boil up in the huge cauldron, after the goblins rushed you and dragged you away to their cave in the thick woods. Guess who's coming to dinner?! And finally eviscerating those pesky goblins with great delight, after you manage to free yourself from their primitive cage, thanks also to your trusty little knife and a well developed frontal lobe.

Thanks!
Not a trade secret but yeah, I came up with it :)
It is easy to work with, the outer part is pretty hard and the inner part is stabilized with epoxi.

I really like the shape of that knife. And what you did with the handle is outstanding. Very nice work.

So much creativity. I love how the white of the antler accents both ends of the handle. A beautiful knife.
