Little full-tang hunter

Here’s a little full-tang hunter I just finished up. It’s a prototype of sorts, in that I may make it a regular model.

The knife is a compact design measuring only 6 1/2″ in overall length. Meant for light carry and ease of use in the field, the sheathed knife will fit comfortably on a belt or even in a pocket.  The stag handle scales and finger notch provide a sure grip, even when wet or bloody (as often happens when hunting knives are put to proper use), while the stainless lanyard tube allows for the attachment of a, um, well a lanyard.

The C75 blade is fully hardened and hand-rubbed to a 400-grit satin finish.

The full tapered tang sits slightly proud of the handle scales and retains a rough-filed finish which I cold-blued for stain resistance. I find that the contrast in color and texture also add some visual appeal, but the aesthetics are secondary to performance considerations. And this knife is designed to perform.

For skinning and dressing game, fish and fowl, a simple, compact carbon-steel knife like this will be hard to beat.
