The Pigeon knife is designed especially for bird and other small game hunters. It has short 2 1/4" polished carbon steel blade with an acute point. The handle is an attractive assembly with curly birch at both ends, and stacked birch bark in the center. It's treated with linseed oil, giving great feeling and grip also when wet. The handle is about 3 7/8" long, and works best with average or slightly smaller hands. The knife would also make a very nice upscale whittling knife.
