That would certainly make a rather nice skinner Roger!
Beautiful work to say the least!

Curious, Lignum Vitae, is a wood that has a very high content of natural oils and a low coefficient of friction, often used in natural bearings. And has been known to retain this low CofE for hundreds of years (literally). (clocks and also ship propellor shaft bearings) I would think the scales would not be at all "grippy" when covered with blood or gore from skinning operation, is LV a good choice for knife scales?

Ok, it will be interesting. I do like the looks of the knife.
BTW the picture seems to have disappeared from the thread.

Still there for me. Very nice knife and sheath. I do prefer longer blades with a guard, however that is a nice design, just the same.
