"Lil' Buddy"

   The Lil' Buddy is a fixed blade skinning knife that is designed for small to medium sized game. When placing your index finger on the spine of the knife and using in a sweeping motion this knife quickly capes game up to boar and small deer size. This knife was named after Jeff's son Dylon (nickname Lil' Buddy) and is a huge hit with boar hunters in England. These knives come with a custom fitted sheath made by Jeff and can be found in the "Leatherwork" section of this website.

   Jeff's Lil' Buddy pattern has a flat ground blade with a variety of blade steels and finishes to choose from. The length of this knife is 5-7/8 inches with a 2-1/2 inch blade and can be handled in any material you wish. Pins are available in stainless steel, nickel-silver or brass. Decorative filework and bar shield are also available. Here are a few examples of knives Jeff has made in this pattern:
