This was maybe the 4th knife Ive ever made. Its full of imperfections. I finished it years ago, and tossed it in a drawer.
I don't really care for roach belly knives, and this basically reminds me of one.
Ive been on a quest for the best squirrel knife, and figured I'd give it a fair chance to be useful.
Turns out to be excellent for the task. There's something special about using the under dog as well. Its 1095 steel, and I really did a good heat treat on it. Got it next to my Sage for size comparison sake. Figured I would post something that isn't beautiful or amazing just so anyone interested can see that you don't have to be a Master Smith to make a very functional knife.
The more knives I made the better they got naturally. Just like anything I suppose. 20220114_222704_1642217310779.jpg

Sorry about the double pics.
My phone is acting nutty.

I like the blade shape, it could fill several roles, and, I really like the grip.
