(Updated photo and write-up as of 16 September 2019.)

These knives are shop "users". Not meant to be carried or "display" knives. Fashioned from bandsaw sawmill blades so, yes, they do hold an edge. Scales of American black walnut, or fire-killed western juniper. Each knife individually handmade, so there are slight differences. These will last. Prices of either the pelter, the skinner, or the beaver knife are $25.00 plus shipping. PM me if interested. Thanks for looking. Hope everybody has a great fur season coming up. Shown are representative knives. I make these on demand, and currently have about 50 made up.


[Linked Image]

All the knives in this image are western juniper. On the left are "skinners". Right are "pelters". Of course, bottom two are "beavers".

Beautiful knives Gulo. I just might have to save my pennies to pick up one of each. And like has been mentioned, there are some of us who appreciate the old time look and simplicity of knives and other objects. After I close a couple of deals that I'm currently committed to I'll be contacting you.

One question that I've been dying to ask and have been too embarrassed to ask is, what is the difference between a pelter and a skinner and what are their different jobs?

Trap4fur - Thank you sir. Glad you like 'em.

TheBig1 - The pelters are the triangle blade. I use them for opening about everything. I use them exclusively for muskrats, mink, marten, skunks. The skinners are the drop-point. I use them for skinning out coyotes, red fox, bobcats, wolves and wolverine. I also use the skinners to gut and skin deer, elk, caribou, moose, pronghorn, bears. For me, 2 different knives for two different duties.

Thank you Jack! Like I said, let me wrap up some deals that I have going at the moment and get those gentlemen paid and then I'll be ordering one of each. I appreciate it. Pick me out a beautiful matching set! smile

You're certainly welcome, Guyk01. Thanks for the feedback. After you give 'em a workout, let me know.

All I can say is that you are selling way too cheap! I charge twice that just to put a handle on a blade.

Gulo,

If they are still available, I gotta' have one of those beaver knives.But, I don't know what "PM" means. Please tell me, in intricate detail, how I can get my hands on one of those.

O.K. Now I know what "P.M." means. I will try to email this post.

Well, that didn't work. Gulo, hope to hear back from you.

Jack M.
