Our Skinner Knife, a specialized hunting tool, is purposefully designed with a rounded point to preserve the integrity of the skin during removal. This knife is an indispensable companion for hunting pursuits, allowing you to prepare game for consumption with finesse.
Unlike other knives, the Skinner Knife is primarily designed for cutting rather than stabbing, featuring a singular sharpened edge. It has a gently curved blade that facilitates effective skinning and a straight edge for slicing meat. Some models may include a guthook for added versatility.
Rooted in Tradition
Our Skinner Knife takes inspiration from the iconic Bowie Knife. Established in the early 19th century by James Black, the Bowie Knife is revered for its broad, thick steel blade that ranges between 6 and 12 inches. The Bowie Knife's versatile design makes it perfect for skinning and butchering game, and our Skinner Knife incorporates these beneficial features.
Every Skinner Knife we produce is a testament to high-quality craftsmanship, featuring thick, durable steel blades that make them not just tools, but collectors' items. Please note, our knives are intended for hunting or display, and not as weapons. In scenarios where other specific tools are unavailable, our Skinner Knife adapts as a camp knife, functioning similarly to a survival knife.
Blade of Distinction
The Skinner Knife blade is crafted from pattern-welded Damascus steel, a heat-treated, folded carbon steel known for its exceptional hardness and resilience. Through a process of folding 11 pieces of steel five times, we achieve 352 distinct layers, achieving a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC.
The blade is composed of high carbon Damascus steel, with layers of 1095 steel, the highest content carbon steel used in swords. The steel's strength holds a sharp edge while retaining the flexibility to endure high-impact situations. The knife's handle, made from black horn with an HRC of 55-56, ensures a sturdy grip, and it comes with a protective leather sheath.
