    Joe, the blade on this one looks very similar to your Turkey knives. Is it ? or do you grind them thinner for fish ?

    Shockjockey, thanks! I'm at a hunter safety course with my boy today, will check email when I get home tonight, to a computer instaed omy my
    Phone

    Longbow, I was just thinking of doing some bigger ones, if u want, u can pm me what your after and I can include it in the next batch.

    Roland, these are off the same pattern as the turkey knives, about the same grind, maybe a bit thinner, but the blades don't have any flex to them dUring normal use. They are for walking a trout stream, trout where I fish are usually 14" and smaller and don't need filleting, just gutting, then build small fire and cook right on the streamside, maybe with a pot of rice. So this blade is just right for that with the micarta handle since it will see more water than the turkey knives.
