B&T and a skinner

Just finished these two
First is a skinner in buckshot pattern damascus. 7" overall with a 3" blade. The handles are sheep horn.

Next is a nice little bird and trout knife.
7" overall with a 3" blade. The handle is some really nice stabilized curly Koa.

Thanks for looking

Really love the pattern on the skinner. How was the sheep horn to work with; is it as stinky as working with bone?

Yes the horn was very nice to work with but it smelled terrible when cutting grinding or sanding...

I lean more toward the B/T, but that's just me. Like 'em both.
Hope you got the sheep horn mechanically tied down (flared pins) it likes to walk away from epoxy over time.
Great looking stuff but does a lot of wandering when humidity and temps change.
Stinks pretty bad.....my dog really likes it! (He likes me too, what's that tell ya?)

Love the B & T particularly. Nice, delicate, simple, looks like a perfect design for its intended purpose.
