Well clay you were on the money. This did an awesome job on my 8 point buck and splitting the breast bone really did not dull the edge nearly as much as I expected. Also I sharpened my skinner at 18 per side and took it to a highly polished edge with no micro teeth and this made my skinning task a breeze very slick. I will post a picture of my European mount when I get it back.
That's great and congrats on your hunt. I'd love to see your pictures if you get a chance to post them.
