This knife is made for outdoorsmen that like to pack light. It has a lanyard hole for convenience, along with a lightweight synthetic handle and thinner blade to make it a great knife to carry. The Skinner blade is commonly used for skinning or field dressing. The blade is made of a high-carbon steel that helps blades hold an edge longer than conventional steel. It offers superior blade strength and corrosion resistance. All case knives are handcrafted in the USA.
