    Custom D2 hunting knives

    Just got some blades back from laser marking and will be ready to go in a week. 3 styles that have been tested in the field all come with quality leather sheath, Iíll post images of finished knives as I complete them, because they are hand made the handle contours will differ slightly. All handles will be OD green canvas Micarta as this gives best grip when covered in blood. Price is 250. Blades are hollow ground D2 steel RC is 60-61 PM if interested to reserve one.

    Hi Danny, it’s called “Jack” and I named it this because it’s a jack of all trades, the design is a cross between a boning knife and skinner and a drop point.

    The stag knife is the same design as the top or far right blade, the one on deer is one I roughed out as I had no knife for my hunting trip so needed to make one in a hurry, it’s one of the prototypes and now I’ve sorted the design I will be making a lot of them. Blade length measured on cutting edge only are : Jack is 4.5” B is 3.5” and c is 4”.

    FYI people, I’ll be putting handles on them this week, please PM your details if you want one, as I complete a knife I’ll post image on here and pm any one that has expressed interest, also the logo on the knives are not where I wanted them so some of the knives will be getting them removed so I can make the handle sit as I intended it to. I have been making knives for a long time now but only just this year decided to start selling publicly.

    Sold out of Jack sorry, I have one drop point left and three notched skinners, all are tested and work well for dressing deer, there is a 6 week wait on import of new steel so if you are keen on jack... or maybe Iíll rename it JOAT 🤔 let me know and Iíll make you one, all will be D2 or K110 as Bohler call it.... I am humbled by the response and thank you all for the business.
