Handmade Filet Knives. Ulu and Crown Fillet

A 7 1/2” recovered high carbon steel blade with cobalt. Set into a mule deer crown. The tang is pinned into the antler. The blade is thin and flexible at 1.5 mm. The fillet ulu was made from recovered carbon mill saw blade steel. 1/4” stem and a 3/16” blade with a wide bevel. Moose antler scales.
