Hi, new here, but really liking your stuff!
I like small knives, so I toss my hat into the "patch knife" pile.
Definately 52100 steel 1/8" nesmuck...don't know if thats a choice but for skinning,fleshing etc..will do great.
A 3/32" Nessmuk with lots of belly is about as good as it gets for a fieldcraft knife IMO! Some people don't care for the looks, but they function as well as anything I've tried. No Scandi grinds on a Nessmuk though, they are made for slicing, skinning, some wood work, general camp/kitchen chores, etc.
Definitely go for the Hudson Bay type knife, but in 1/8 A2steel. I also would like to see a rifleman's long knife in 3/32 steel in a 6-8 inch blade, but make the profile about 1 3/4 wide to add a little weight but keep the thinness too to be a good camp slicer/kitchen knife. Maybe out of L6 or 52000.
+1 on the hook knife
A trade knife type for the 18th century guys. I like the Rifleman knife you did. I'd like a straight tang to put antler scales on.
