    **WITHDRAWN** 2 Skinning Knives

    Found these 2 at the back of the cabinet, new and unused as they came from the makers...

    The first is by John Millington and I would say very unusual in design. John studied ergonomics at degree level and came up with this design:

    The knife is 6 1/2" long, blade is 2 1/2" and handle 4". The blade is 2mm 01 steel with a flat grind and false swedge on the first third of the blade from the tip. The handle is Elm Burl with a 10mm mosaic pin, 10mm brass lanyard hole and black fibre liners. There is NO SHEATH with this knife. How does 40 30 SOLD posted Royal Mail 1st class Signed For sound, including any PP fees?

    Secondly is a blade I bought ages ago and had handled for me by Ben Orford, a maker who should need no introduction in knife circles. At the time I couldn't afford high end damascus, so I bought an 01 tool steel damascus patterned blade....

    The knife is 7 3/4" long, blade 3 3/4" and handle 4". The blade is flat ground 01 tool steel in a 3mm stock with a damascus pattern and micro secondary bevel. Ben handled the blade in Lacewood and secured it with 2 brass Corby bolts. It comes complete with one of Ben's hand stitched pocket sheaths. How does 90 70 65 WITHDRAWNposted RMSD, including any PP fees sound?

    Any questions please ask and thanks to the SD for the facility.

    They look nice knives , I wouldnt drop the price as seems fair to me. At the end of the day if someone will not pay for a decent knife then dont sell them. Just my advice as a maker , if someone want a rubbish blade there a great selection on T'internet

    The second knife looks like a paterned steel to me not an etch, nice sheath and if Ben has handled it its worth more than your asking, post it on british blades if no luck here, or uk blades forum....

    You're right, patterned was the process name I was looking for - the grain is too deep for an etch. Thanks
