She Needed A Handle!
I’ve had this blade for who knows how long! It was given to me by an elder family member long, long ago and she was in desperate need of having a good quality handle mounted up!! So I hit several hunting/fishing forums that I’m a member of to get some inputs on what folks thought would make for a good handle.
Hopefully the tape measurer helps in giving you an idea of the blade’s length. Because this is no Bowie knife blade!! It’s a very small one that I plan on using for small game and for areas that call for an intricate skinning knife. From the forums that I posted up on to gain inputs from blade choices, many options were given!! Shown below is a cheesy chart breaking down all the options given.
Out of all the recommendations given, I chose to go with the one made by Jacob Bennett (of Shared Obsession TV ) who put on a beautiful osage wood handle! What I can’t wait for is the darkening effect osage has while it ages!!
The rounding on this handle fits into my hand very snugly and I can’t wait to put it to work on some skinning!!
