Hedge Post Skinner
« on: February 08, 2019, 09:17:17 AM »
Here is knife #250 I just finished up. This knife has a stabilized hedge handle (cut from an old hedge post), stainless guard with blue G-10 spacers, and 1095 steel. I plan on using this one as a deer skinner next year and hopefully many years to follow. The knife is 8" overall with a 4 1/4" blade.

Really nice!! I wouldn't have thought to use blue G10 spacers but it looks great. Nice color and contrast. I really like working with hedge (Bodock, Osage Orange, Horse Apple). Not sure how many names that wood has, just depends on what part of the country you're in I guess.  :biglaugh:

Thank you sir. Hedge is one of those woods that will look good with about any color of spacer. I debated between blue or red and figured I would try something different and use blue for a change. And yes, it has many names. Where I'm from, we just call it hedge. But just a couple hours south once you cross into Oklahoma, it turns into bois d'arc!
