Skinning Knife Description

The skinning, skinner, knife is a type of hunting knife that has a rounded point as to not damage the skin as it is being removed. The hunting knife is a knife used during hunting for preparing the game to be used as food.  These activities involve skinning the animal and cutting up the meat. Hunting knives are traditionally designed for cutting rather than stabbing, and usually have a single sharpened edge. The blade is slightly curved on most models, and some hunting knives may have a blade that has both a curved portion for skinning, and a straight portion for cutting slices of meat. Some blades incorporate a guthook. Most hunting knives designed as "skinners" have a rounded point as to not damage the skin as it is being removed.

This American style hunting knife is based on the Bowie knife.  The Bowie knife is a fixed-blade knife created by James Black in the early 19th century.  This was founded in Arkansas, USA in reference to the legendary Jim Bowie. The Bowie knife is used to describe a wide range of hunting knives, although in common usage the term refers to any large sheath knife with a crossguard and a clip point.  The knife pattern is still popular with collectors and hunters. Most modern versions of the Bowie knife a blade length between 6 and 12 inches, with a relatively broad blade with thick steel. The Bowie knife's design makes it the perfect hunting knife for skinning or butchering game. The curved top clip bevel of the blade, when suitably sharpened, may be used to remove the skin from a carcass, while the straight portion of the blade edge, toward the guard, can be used for cutting meat.  All Battling Blades Bowie knives are extremely high quality knives, with exceptionally thick steel. These knives are used for hunting or display and are not intended or sold for use as a weapon. Some hunting knives are adapted for other uses in the wild; such as a Camp knife, which hunters may use as machetes or hatchets when those specific tools are not available. In this case, their function is similar to a survival knife.

Blade Details

This knife is made from Pattern welded Damascus steel.  Pattern welded Damascus steel is a hard heat treated, folded carbon steel.  There are 11 pieces of steel, folded five times, making 352 layers. The steel is the perfect combination of hardness and durability with a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC.  High carbon damascus steel must contain layers of high carbon steel. The high carbon steel we use is 1095 steel which is the highest content carbon steel used in swords. The combination of the steel layers creates a sword that is strong enough to hold a powerful edge while having the strength and flexibility to withstand powerful collisions.  This makes the perfect steel for swords. The handle is black horn with an HRC of 55-56. It comes with a leather sheath.

Good knife for the price

Not the cleanest knife they have, however you really cannot beat the price, it’s totally worth it. Real Damascus too not fake edged. Worth it!

I love this piece so much. It’s gorgeous and feels great in my hand. I haven’t had the chance to use it yet, but it’s very sharp and I’m excited to get the opportunity. Love this shop, the people are so nice and they always do gorgeous work. <3

Excellent product

Great craftsmanship, excellent steel once sharpened holds the edge well. Do recommend will use again


Those is my second gift purchase. The first one was a couple years ago. (Sorry, I don't remember what type of knife it was) Both have been for my son-in-law. He loves them. After his first one I gave him, he in turn bought one for his brother. I love the artistry of these products.
