Well, it ain't here yet. The mail is soooo slow. Anyways...
It's D2 steel, a full 6" cutting edge, orange G10 with 1/4" black G10 liners. Should be a sweet skinner for sure. It's the bid brother to this one I already own:
I got to try the knife out a little this fall.
A friend of mine shot his first buck:
It carved through the little buck like a hot knife through butter...kinda felt like I was cheating:
A couple weeks ago I killed this medium sized bull moose and gave the knife a real test:
Me, making meat:
Nicks knife was scary sharp all the way through the process, and I still havent sharpened it. I'm afraid I might mess it up! If it keeps up like this I won't have to worry about it for a few more animals. So far it's been awesome and has become my go to blade .
Went out this last weekend and found another job for the knife - Bull musk ox. The hair and hide on these things makes them a real challenge for skinning. I ended up touching up the blade near the end of the job with a ceramic stick. I'm not sure if it was getting harder to cut because of fatigue or the edge. Seemed to work like normal after though. When I get a chance at home I'm going to run it on the strop. I'm very happy with it. Seems to fit the bill for what I need a knife to do in this area. Enjoy the pics.
