Looking at the shape of the blade, I reckon that will be a combination of a useful camp knife and a really good skinner. I like the timber in your scales…a very nice looking piece of timber.
I’m sure Gelan will support me here, but now that you have made one, the bug will have bitten you deep…you will want to make more knives, of different shapes and styles.

hopefully in the next week I can find something worthy to blood the knife with...
shes a chunky monkey..... but its mine LOL.
