This knife is a upturned skinner style. It's intended as a large to medium game skinner. A time honored design that's been around for ever. I've just added some modern engineering principles and this is the result.
Overall Length: just over 8 13/16" Blade Length: just over 4 9/16" Blade Width: just over 1 1/4" Blade Thickness: just over 3/16" Handle Length: just over 4 5/16" Handle Width: just over 1 1/8" Handle Thickness: just over 3/4" Finger Guard: just under 1 5/8" x 1/2" thick. Hidden Tang. Scabbard included.
Price $135.50 plus shipping in deer antler or brass with walnut handle.
The first one is with a bone finger guard. The one on the bottom has a brass finger guard. That's really the only difference in the two knifes. In the bottom picture you can see an example of my typical loop stitched scabbard. On most of them there will be a hot brand of my logo. Some may be a stamped brand because of certain kinds of leather dyes, but most will.
If you like large upturned skinners, this is about as good as it gets. The knife features a long radius cutting edge with a diminishing radius hollow grind that maintains strength at the upturned tip. There is a thumb rest and finger grove at the guard and a finger grip at the hilt of the handle. The handle has a sweeping radius starting at the thumb rest and continuing to the hilt. A great feeling knife. The balance is just at the front of the guard so the weight pivots between the index finger and thumb as you work. All and all...and with all the great design...this knife is just plain sexy! Pictures really can't do them justice.
