Here’s my patch and rabbit//hare/fox skinning knife.
It lives in a built in leather sheath in the strap of my hunting bag.
Not one that I made but a piece of cut down Canadian cutlery with a plastic handle, trouble is I’ve come to love it and have been using it for decades.

The top knife is my current standard carry. Made by Swampfox Knives, (Tim Ridge). I've had it for maybe fifteen years. I found it at the Eastern Primitive Rendezvous and just thought it was the best knife ever. It's a pretty good frontier style knife.

The second knife is one I assembled many, many years ago. I found it just the other day in a box of stuff in its sheath. A former club member did the artwork on the antler handle. It has a Norwegian laminated blade. This knife is authentic to the 1980s.

My forty years old bear jaw knife is a good skinner, feels very nimble in hand, consequently it gets carried and used more than any other except perhaps my Russel butcher knife. The bowie comes in handy for heavy duty task around camp. I hafted both but the blades were commercial made.

My favorite was one I made from a file and antler tine back in about 1990. Painstakingly. It walked off with someone. Now I use a Jeff White most of the time in the bush, but this is the one I'm the most proud of:

The only one ever that I didn't break on my last attempt at flaking. Took me quite literally years (I'd do a little, freak out and set it aside, and then repeat)

I currently don’t have one! I really need to make myself one! But here are a couple I made and sold.

Nice work. You ever do any rifleman type knives?
Thanks!! The second and third picture down are the same knife. It is the closest I’ve come to a riflemans knife. It’s a little on the small side for traditional riflemens knife. It’s on my list to make I just have some other orders I need to fill first.
