You’re way more talented than me. I count on Mr Miller and Mr McCrosky for my hunting knives.One of the best presents I have got was 30 years ago a Victorinox 6" boning knife and a Victorinox steel to sharpen it.
BIL was a meat cutter at Pratts in Moore and man that knife is awesome.
Getting narrower but man what a knife.
Not an EDC.
If your buddies hunt and fish or do outdoor things with a knife there is a larger Victorinox
Swiss Army 1 Alox Silver.
That is a useful sized blade.
I take turns using different knives for deer season and sometimes an old timer 2 or 3 blade is in my pocket.
I used to make my own fixed blade for deer season, a new one every year.
Knives are nice to have for sure.
A custom knife would be a super cool and very memorable gift, but that would put Holechit way over his budget.
