Skinner

A project a friend asked me to make for him based off of a knife he lost years ago. Forget the type or original company, old age and no notes to blame.

Blade is CPM 154 stainless steel, tempered back to a 59-60 HRc and cryogenic quench for 12 hours for improved wear resistance.
Handle is a curly maple that has been stabilized and double dyed with purple and green and in the natural yellow color and it makes for a odd looking handle material.

One of those cases of an experiment with colors being stranger than first thought.



 
 
Still some cleaning up to do like getting the wax off the blade and buff one more time. Also have to figure out what kind of sheath to make for it.
