You don't need a Knife for gutting, I always squeeze the guts out of Rabbits these days, with the Knife laws being what they are! It isn't hard with practice.

smalest knife i can make would be tiny , the handle would be the largest part . i think i would need to make a straight cutting edge on it for grinding my end and so you can get a new edge when you need it .

the blades on them lethermans are crap i dont know how you cope ?

here is another option for you i have some ORANGE kydex and could sheath it in that and maybe handle it in the same you would strugle to loose it then !!

i have done 5 small stick tang blanks today hoping one of those might be what ypour looking for but sounds like you want something differant again !

il wipe of the buffing wax on this lot and take some pics see if anyone wants a go at making there own stick tang pauncher ?

this lot are also available cheap but they are heat treateed and tempered and ground sharp . just drill a peice of suitable wood fill the hole with apoxi and fit the tang in there , a little shaping you have a paunching knife , im happy to finnish any of these with handle and sheath if anyone wants ?

all the best , matt.
