Mini Skinners

I was pretty happy with my first attempt at a skinner so I made a few mini versions. I thought one of these would be good to throw in with my camping kit, as a sort of emergency knife for 'light' bushcraft needs.
I decided to make these in two different styles.
The paracord wrapped one is a drop point and the other (hoochie cord wrapped) has a more traditional trailing-point spine.
I also chose to give both knives a smooth, seamless bevelled edge, and left out a ricasso to give a longer blade length that could start a cut from either the point or rear of the blade.
