I make four standard hidden tang-hunting knives. The 'Coyote Meadow' is a utility style hunter with a trailing point, Blade lengths are from three to about 5 inches. The 'Chalk Creek' is a "semi skinner” with a 4 to 5 inch blade. The 'Selby' is a 4-inch large sweep classic skinning shape. The 'Silver Peak' is a 4-inch drop point.
I make four full tang hunter utility designs. The 'Meadows' is a 4.5 inch semi skinner, the 'South Fork' is a 4.5 inch trailing point, and the 'Smoke Creek' is 4.5 inch drop point.
I added one more basic design in 2009. It is called the 'Bow River'. This is a partial tang with blade length limited to about 4 inches. For more detailed information on this design and evolution, please see the articles section on this web site. Blade thickness on all designs is 0.120 to 0.187, depending on the available blade stock and choice of the buyer.
I use the same flat grind on hunters that is described above for fillet knives. This allows a constant taper in the blade from the hilt all the way to the point. Balance and ease of sharpening are greatly enhanced using this method.
