I have 2 hand made furharvester's (beaver) knives for sale. I made them myself. They are hand-cut, hand-filed knives, with very little machining.
They are made from A2 steel, which is an extremely tough tool steel. They hold an amazing edge and come razor sharp. I made a bunch of these for a hunting guide friend of mine who gave these as gifts to his clients and these 2 are whats left. He used his to skin a hog, 4 deer and a dozen or so coyotes before a resharpen was required. One of his went to a taxidermist who loves it.
They are nearly identical except that one has a walnut handle, the other hickory. Both have an approximate 4 inch blade that is 1/8" thick, making it very easily to remove a hide. The rounded tip prevents slicing through hide. The edge ends at about the 10 or 2 o'clock position on the tip (depending on which way you look at it). The handles are cylindrical and about 3/4" thick at the forward end and 1.5" thick at the back end, giving greater control over the edge while decreasing hand fatigue. The handles are polished and clear-coated for the most moisture protection and stain resistance, but can be sanded and oiled depending on purchaser preference. The blades themselves are black powder-coated for corrosion resistance. A2 is not technically stainless, but is pretty corrosion resistant. I just keep a very light coat of olive oil on my edge just to prevent moisture from setting in. Both knives come with a black kydex sheath with belt loop.
