Bird’s-eye Maple Herron-type Skinner


Herron-type Skinner with bird’s-eye maple with stainless-steel pins. $150

Timothy (Bubba) Hutto of Springfield, South Carolina, has always had a love for knifemaking, though it wasn’t until a year ago that he fashioned his first blade. On several occasions over the years he was able to watch legendary knifemaker George Herron in his shop in Springfield, where the master bladesmith created his beautiful works of art.

Influenced by Herron, Bubba handcrafts his stainless-steel blades, which are meticulously heat-treated and tempered. For his handles he uses blackwood, rosewood, bird’s-eye maple, cherry, black walnut, and bone. His knife styles include straight points, drop points, skinners, fillets, and recurves.

“I want to pursue my knifemaking skills to the highest level I can achieve,” says the 39-year-old craftsman. “My wife and three children stand behind me in all that I do.”
