So my friend Kelly came over tonight and gifted me a knife with no stamps, roll marks, nothing. I Google Image searched it and still came up dry. I've been drinking, so it could be me. It looks like a skinning knife? Sharp as shiz too. She clipped her own finger fondling it before she brought it over and needed 2 stitches.

@CamoDeafie , that looks to be about it.

Handle fit isn't 100%. Looks warped, but I won't be using it for any chopping, so... For my taste, the blade is way too thick and stiff to be a boning knife, but I'm not a knife maker. I like it though. It'll definitely get put to use in the kitchen and go out with me as a skinning knife, along with the Havalon.

Those Serbian Chefs use funny looking knives. Doesn't look like any boning knife I've ever used. But hey, if it gets the job done...

So the knife came with a sausage and cheese gift box as well and I cut some read the newspaper thin slices with that knife.

What's the difference between a carbine and a rifle? The barrel, until the manufacturer calls it what they want.

Like Havalon's skinning and boning blade...

‍:duh: Who knows. That's why I have certain blade types I like for certain jobs in the kitchen. And a completely different set of knives for butchering.... animals...

To me it's more clip-point than drop point, or the bastard child of them...
what are my odds of getting you to do a paper template and mail it to me? I ...dabble with making knives. Can't duplicate it exactly, (patents and legal stuff) but it would be a cool template to have and mess with

Want to wait until the second one comes in for both templates?

Works for me. I'm in no hurry. My stock arrives Sunday, so I'll be building a muzzleloader for the next couple months - between remodeling the kitchen and... How did I find time to go to work?
