This is a curved blade Damascus knife. It will be a great skinning knife with the sweeping curve to the blade. But don't let that hold you back. It will be good for any of the chores that go along with big game hunting. The wide handle style is a great canvas for nicely patterned wood. The blade is
3 1/8" long with an overall length of  7 5/8".

The knife can be made with the brass guard as pictured, or in an all wood format.
