thanks OP ,, that wood came from an 85/90 yr old walnut tree that grew beside the outhouse , it was the only walnut tree out of 15 that survived the dust bowl era because of where it was planted ,, not sure what you mean by did the stock remove those blades ,,, both skinners are 440 stainless that i purchased from a knife supply, the bowies are a cheaper carbon steel that were preformed but needed work.
wish i had the facility to properly forge my own.

i actually have the others listed in my e-bay store and decided not to sell that one for some reason ,, mostly because the blade is not the greatest of quality even for a simple carbon steel blade , it has a little bit of a disfigure to the shape , not really warped or bent ,, just not perfect and the brass hilt wasen't ground flat on the top before it was applied ,, has a couple small waves to it ,, there was also a small check in the wood that was filled with 2 part epoxy and can be slightly seen in the base of the handle ,, the handle is what makes this knife ,, it came from a walnut plank i purchased some time ago in NC , i heard it's old growth that was stored in a barn for the last 60 years ,, it has a glow / sheen to it that i've never seen before in walnut and being raised by a gunsmith i've seen alot of walnut , i'de rather not sell this one ,, i just won't take someones hard earned money for something that's not up to my selling standards , however if you were to have an extra half doz of the arrows we might talk a trade , i will attach a couple more pics of the handle but belive me ,, the camera does not catch the glow from the walnut.

got another one that i'm just finishing up ,, been working on the handle design for some time now , i wanted a skinner that made it easy to turn and twist the knife while in use but fit comfortably on your hand ,, looks a little different but this is what i came up with.
