My uncle was generous enough to give me some stainless steel he had. I spent so many hours on this thing partially because I didn’t know what I was doing and partially because this stainless is so hard. I ended up making another identical one for my uncle who gave me the steel, but didn’t make another knife for 3 years. I just wasn’t up to it.
This knife has a Teak wood handle and has been with on many canoeing and hunting trips. I’ve helped skin a few deer with this as well.
