Description: This is an early example of Shane Taylor's Batwing style knife, which became one of the hallmarks of his career. This knife was forged in 1997, prior to his journeyman smith test. The batwing would later on be used for skinners and folders by Shane, and would eventually inspire his Dragon folders.
This skinner and its sheath are in new condition. As you would expect, the fit and finish are spectacular, from the integral bolster to the fit between the bolster and scales. The apple seed ground blade is a rarity for Shane, and shows a strong eastern ABS influence. The scales are dovetailed to the integral bolsters, showing a tremendous amount of skill. The two bar composite bars that form the blade are zipper welded together forming a wave pattern. The backbar and spine are fully fileworked.
