This skinning knife is more than just a tool; it's a companion for hunting enthusiasts. Boasting a rounded point to prevent damage to the skin during removal, it's specifically designed for the careful preparation of game for food. Its cutting-edge design is traditional, with a focus on slicing rather than stabbing, featuring a single sharpened edge for optimal performance.
The blade showcases a graceful curve, aiding in the skinning process, while a straight portion facilitates efficient meat slicing. It even includes a guthook for versatile use. The rounded point design and the meticulous arrangement make this knife the quintessential 'skinner,' preventing skin damage during removal.
Inheriting its design from the legendary Bowie knife, our American-style hunting knife retains the popularity and efficiency of the original. Created by James Black in the early 19th century for the legendary Jim Bowie, this knife carries a legacy. The Bowie knife offers a large sheath knife structure with a crossguard and a clip point. Modern adaptations of the Bowie usually range from 6 to 12 inches, with a broad blade made from thick steel.
The Bowie knife's design is renowned for its utility in skinning and butchering game. The sharpened curved top clip bevel serves for skinning the carcass, while the straight portion near the guard is perfect for cutting meat. Each of our Bowie knives stands out for its high-quality craftsmanship and exceptionally thick steel. Ideal for hunting, these knives are for display purposes and are not intended for use as a weapon.

One of my favorite knives in my collection. I've had it for almost 2 years and still looks and cuts beautifully. I highly recommend this company. It was a long wait but they provided periodic updates and made sure the blade was verified to meet standards before shipping it. Well worth the wait. On a side note they also make amazing gifts for anyone who hunts or fishes.
