    Default A couple handmade s30v skinners hot off the press.

    Finished up two s30v Skinners both are similar knives first one in buffalo horn and nickel silver, 2nd is in blue and black g-10 with stainless steel bolsters and nickel silver pins. I love s30v stainless steel this stuff will hold a keen edge these blades are 59HRC just about perfect if you ask me, some times I will have them heat treated to 60hrc but that becomes to hard for some to sharpen, these have been cryo treated also.

    8" total, 3 3/8" blades

    This one is buffalo horn.

    Beautiful work. Your filework is top shelf. Photography , not so much..hahaha.

    Looks really thick for a straight up skinner. I imagine you could perform much more demanding tasks with a knife that thick.
    I had a compass, but without a map, it's just a cool toy to show you where oceans and ice are.

    That arrow is really cool. What would you think about s30v in a scandi-grind? Chip too easily?

    I use the word Skinner more to describe the shape of the knife I guess, I would say you could pry a car door open with one of these I used as processed 3/16" stock on these. After flat grinding I end up with just a tad more than 3/16" thickness, I then do a nearly full flat grind on them, I take the edges down to .015" before heat treat. I then sharpen these at 17 degrees. These knives are very tough and durable.

    I here s30v chips to easy a lot but that's because its to hard to heat treat, I send my s30v to peters heat treat for treatment and cryo treatment, I can cut through the pelvis bone of a white tail like butter I have several of these out and have never had a chip. I have never messed with a scandi grind not my style but I may try it some day. If I was going to heat treat my own stainless steel I would do cmp 154 or s35vn they are simpler to heat treat in a oven.
