Smile Three ready for HT!!

The first three i have been able to work on since finishing my very first one this last summer. Tried t cover the gambit and did a Hunter with some basic file work. A bird and trout and my take on a bull nose skinner (my favorite so far) also with some file work on the spine. As always any comments, criticisms or critiques for the next ones are always welcome. Thanks for looking guys.

Looks good so far. You may eventually decide that file work may not be desirable on knives that will deal with blood and goo as it gives those things places to hide and hold on. You can fill in the gaps with glue but that may not last for long on a knife that gets used for years. Something to think about ...

Yea I ended up getting carried away with it on the bull nose just fell into that zone. I am going to make another bull nose and leave it all out but some jimping. Going to be ordering me some norton 1x30 belts as they HAVE to be better then the ACE brand I've been burning through on this last batch. Anyways enough rambling and thank you for the input Ray as always.
