Gut hook .......

Recommended Posts

I had a couple of hours spare so knocked up this gut hook out of an old farriers file. I’m going to put an antler handle on it ... and finish off the blade when I get a chance this week .......

I’ve got a real small sharpening Steel but the blade has been tempered and hardened and it’s only used on skin so hardly ever needs sharpening .......

One thing i do like about that hook looks as if you could use it without having to make a cut first. Nice one.

He can tie his first aid kit to it so it will be close by when he grallochs his hand using it.

First blade I ever made was a gut hook from an old file some antler and a pound coin , still in the rucksack today and still worth a pound 😂
