    Cool, what kinda stainless?

    The steel is 440-C stainless

    The wood on the Moray (one with the gut hook) is walnut (from a friends property) and cocobolo on the Wolf

    Both are treated with 3 coats of Minwax, I didn't want more on them because they are working knives and I didn't want them to get to slick

    Poly? If so, thin it half and half with thinner, that way it will go in the wood, instead of build up.

    It does stink, pretty bad sometimes but like with giraffe bone the result is worth it.

    Good job!

    Bear, I'd kill for some stag that could be made into scales!
