Made by David Farmer.

I am going to use this one as my Deer Hunter/Skinner this year. Great sharp knife with a nice thick spine. He used Red Palm for the scales and it was antique Saw blade that donated the steel. It has a 4" slightly drop pointed blade. Brass pins. A little over 8" OAL. Hand fits is perfect for me.



I am in the process of learning to tie a Lanyard for it. Trying to work with some leather which is rather tricky.

Very nice skinner, I hate even mentioning it after seeing your knife, I just bought a Buck Mini Alpha Hunter off ebay yesterday. I am going to have to look at his site after seeing a picture of yours. Now I wish that I didn't win my auction.

No David is one of us Southerners and is from Acworth Georgia. He has a rudimentary web site (http://dfarmerknives.com) but he often posts up knives for sale on Bladeforums in the "for sale by Knife maker" section. http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=754

There are a ton of great makers hang out over there an offer up their wares. If your a knife enthusiast or just someone looking for something for yourself as a unique "user" you'll do your self a favor by being a member there and looking there for your needs. Treat yourself... and help out a knife maker at the same time. Great talent over there.

That is a beautiful knife. Hand made knives are awesome! I was a gun show recently, and was taken in by some custom, hand made knives. Howes Knife Shop, in Northern Michigan sells them. They have a website www.howesknifeshop.com. I'd love something like this
.

My fixed blade knife is similar to one retsupt99's but without the gutting hook. It's the Buck Vanguard.

Haven't gutted deer (none shot yet). But it does a great job on chickens.
