 this little number ... no it's not a bush blade it's a skinner



other side



 it was made by Alan Gerber, # 133 it was his deer skinner design ...
handle is corian with brass spacers. and yep real turquoise.

not sure of the steel but holds an edge like nobody's business :-) granted
I doubt it would be something I'd baton with :-)

Wow, exotic!

I've heard you can actually get stabilized turquoise that is made from crushed turquoise in a polymer binder. The Corian is cool too. I haven't used it yet but I'm looking forward to trying it some time. Cool knife though, thanks for posting it!

I like that one. :D
I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)

That looks pretty cool.  Have you skinned anything with it yet?

Nice looking knife. I can only imagine how difficult that handle was to make.

That is very nice. Looks like a polar bear to me.
