Found an old skinner blade i bought some 15 years ago, it was quite beaten up and in bad shape, a nice piece to try a octagon handle. Its birch and pocenholts. I realize its not a kitchen knife per say but its practice for later attempts on kitchen knife making :wink:

I like that kind of Oct on the small knives, big hands and small handles tend to raise issues :p

I think it's really neat looking. Not to threatening, would make a good choice for an edc grip, IMO.

Nice job. I hope my first attempt is half as good.
