Large Hunting Knife- D2 Steel with Buffalo Bone Handle- 17"
Hunting Knife Description
This 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.
