    Cool!

    What an awesome way to recyle a sawblade into something useful!

    I'm probably going to steal this one....

    That's very cool. Not a lot of people would look at an old saw blade and see a drop-point skinning knife. Tell Brian he did a great job.

    So who is making the sheath

    VERY nice job Brian, and thank you Dawn for showing us his work.

    How hard was it to drill the sawblade?

    If that stuff is hard enough to hold a good edge, it would be hard to cut...... No?

    I have a deer hunting buddy, I know he would appreciate something like that.

    Cheers!

    Fine looking gutter/skinner. And the zebra handle looks just as fine. Clever recycling from an old sawblade.

    Dawn and Brian, I too thank you for the idea and posting of this great knife!!! Now I know why I have been saving all of those old circular saw blades!!! Am interested in hearing answers to all of the questions already posted so will quit typing and wait patiently (well somewhat patiently! ) for the answers.
