Just picked up this little beauty made by Gene Ingram that he calls his "GWB." I have no idea what "GWB" stands for, but this knife is impeccably made, as is typical of Gene's work. I would classify it as a small "semi-skinner" blade. Blade length is 2-3/8" and overall length is 6" so it's almost small enough to carry in a front pocket. It features S30V steel, spalted maple scales, mosaic pins, thin black liners, jimping, rawhide leather lanyard with antler fob, and a nicely made thick leather sheath.

When you are dead, you don't know you are dead.It is difficult only for others.
It is the same when you are stupid.

That is a great length to work with. Personally I really like a shorter blade on a hunting knife and any knife under 3 inches is probably legal to carry even in the most restrictive places. You do have an eye for quality work brother.
