The line up for this weekends elk hunt. The top knife is the first knife I made around 4 years ago. It's from a saw blade. After field dressing a deer and two elk with it I found that it got dull faster than my blade under it which was made from O-1 steel. I decided to take it apart, anneal it, then oil quench and temper again. I'm very satisfied with it now. It's one of the sharpest knives I've ever held. The skinning knife I made 2 years ago and it has performed flawlessly. I hate using a big skinning knife. This small one can be controlled a lot easier and works great skinning big game or small cottontails without any nicks to the hide. The rasp skinner was finished a couple weeks ago and hasn't seen any blood. Hopefully I can change that this weekend! #kciron#forgedinsaltlakecity#knife#blade#knifemaker#bladesmith#huntingknife#bushcraftknife#bushcraftblade#elkhunting#skinningknife
