Item details

All you hunters out there, how often have you thought to yourself "man, i really need a good skinner knife, but it needs to be unique"?

Im sure that there's at least one person still reading this, so, random citizen, I'm here to tell you your search is over with this awesome little blade! Made from 1/8" 1095 high-carbon steel and measuring 8 1/4" in overall length with a 3 1/4" blade thats 1 1/2" at its widest, this blade will take a razor edge and hold it for a good long while.

Making the already excellent 1095 steel perform even better, this blade has been differentially heat treated. This produces a blade with a hard edge and a soft spine, raising the toughness of the blade as a whole, allowing it to bend and flex under use and impact more than a conventionally hardened blade would. In addition, the process used produces what called a Hamon, the wavy like near the edge. That line is actually where the hardened steel of the edge meets the softer steel of the spine, and is as unique to the blade as a fingerprint it to the wielder. Plus, it looks cool, and that's always a good thing.

Now, no matter how fancy the blade is, it's useless if you can't hold it, and a blade like this deserves a handle that's just as unique. The material used is Sassafrass (what they make root beer from) thats been resin-stabilized in house. Now, Sassafrass itself isn't horribly uncommon, but this particular piece of Sassafras has the advantage of being over 300 years old. Originally cut from a 100+ year old tree growing in Tennessee in the 1780's, this lumber spent a few hundred years underneath a log cabin before being unearthed and sent to me.

Complementing the blade is a hand made leather sheath, crafted from 8oz vegtan leather. Hand-stitched, dyed, sealed and buffed, itll stand up to a lifetime or two of use with proper care
