The newly redesigned Clip Point Skinner is a hidden tang knife kit design that is modeled around the half-tang handle concept. This type of knife handle design is perfect for use with antler tips, stag rolls, contoured blocks and other full handle treatments. The blade on this model is AUS8 and is 1.35 inches wide at its widest point. The blade length is 5" inches and the thickness is .195". It comes hollow ground, satin finished and has a slide-on 416 stainless steel finger guard with matching .093 inch 416 stainless steel pin. Once sanded, the pin in the guard will virtually disappear, creating a truly professional finish.
This is a wonderful skinner blade and is a fun, affordable and very simple knife project to complete. The tang has a pre-drilled .1875 (3/16) inch hole in it for use with standard handle pins, mosaic pins, tubing and other common 3/16 inch diameter materials.
