Can you also do a Muskrat like geedubya's?
--- If you are talking about that round nose knife I made GW awhile back, Not in a hurry to
do that again. A real pain to grind.

Tim, have you ever considered trying something like the Grohmann #2 Bird and Trout?
--Made something similar a while back, but nothing similar lately. Maybe one somewhere down the road.

I will put you on the list for a 5" Boner.

Thanks
Tim

Not to be an ass but my immature sense of humor makes me laugh at a 5” boner

Something that may be helpful to everyone who's snatched up any of these S35VN Blades.

I got one early last year and used hell out of it for almost a year now. Each and every time I was finished I got out the Lansky block with the grey sticks in the 20 degree holes. I pull the blade through once and only once full length, moderate pressure on each side.

So far it has left me with that wonderful, toothy, razor sharp edge that it came with and I think is just a characteristic of S35VN. The second one that I've only had for a couple months but in that time it has also seen very heavy use. Same routine, one pass and one pass only 20 degrees and it is back to that toothy edge that is so perfect for cleaning quarters of membrane and clots and makes it slice like a banshee.

I've never had a knife before that was such an easy keeper. I have never had S35VN before though either. I haven't tried carving rocks with either one yet, but both have been used heavily enough that they became noticeable less sharp, Both knives react identically. One is a slightly longer version of the Michigan slim, the larger one is about twice the cutting length of a Slim blade and more like a conventional boning knife.

I have a slim ordered with Tim, and from as handy as my slightly larger Slim is all these new orders for Slims are going to make a lot of people very happy, myself, not least.

Finally had a chance to use the boning knife I ordered. Very impressed. Thin enough to allow me to get the backstraps out easily yet had enough muscle to use anywhere else. After finishing one deer the blade could easily shave hair off my arm.
Money will spent.


My biggest fear is when I die my wife will sell my guns for what I told her they cost.

Just used my boning knife again on a nice 8 point my wife shot the other day. It continues to be my all time favorite blade for boning out deer. One heck of a knife for the cost. Well done Tim.
PS: Used Tim's skinner today as well. Both will still shave hair off my arm. All I did was touch them up with my steel.

I used my new Michigan Slim yesterday to help my son process a buck. It’s perfect for getting out those tenderloins and back straps. My lad did most of the work with one of Tim’s old school drop points in 154CPM.
