Description
KS1080: Skinning Knife
Kershaw Knives

Part of the American-Made Hunters series, the Kershaw Skinning Knife is designed to be a simple, well-made tool that simply works. The blade has a razor-sharp edge and a deep belly to make skinning easy. Its compact size makes it perfect for doing both larger jobs and delicate work. It's highly maneuverable, lightweight, easy to carry, and easy to stow.

High-performance Sandvik 14C28N blade steel and full-tang construction makes the Skinning Knife strong and corrosion resistant. The blade's stonewashed finish hides scratch that can be expected on a hard-working knife like this. The Skinning Knife comes "shaving sharp" out of the box and re-sharpens quickly and easily so your work on tough-skinned animals—like wild hogs—is barely interrupted. The handle has an index finger contour so it stays securely in your hand as you work.

Textured G10 handle scales and heavy jimping on the top of the knife ensure you get a secure grip every time, in all outdoor conditions. The simplicity of its design also makes it very easy to clean up after a good day's work. Field-tested by hunting pros, this made-in-the-USA hunting knife is sure to become a go-to knife for the quality-minded hunter.

Pros: Materials, Handle Material, Blade Material, Finish, Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
I've using this more for a everyday carry knife at work. So far it has handled all of it's chores well and holding a good edge too! Cutting boxes,paper,rope and my lunch! The balance of knife will make it a great skinner when it comes time. The only thing I would change is the sheath even though the leather and stitching are great. I think a kydex option and possibly a molle attachment would better fit my needs.

USA made all around winner for general utility.
This is awesome, Kershaw's American made smaller companion to the also US made "Field knife". This one's much more concealable, been carrying it in the zipper pocket of a fleece jacket, not really much bulk except for the leather sheath's belt loop. I am OK with the simple pouch-style sheath, it fits tight & works well, the leather quality is basic, but far better than the leather used by competitors like SOG & Cold Steel on knives 5x this price. Some people would prefer a kydex rig, but you could always have one made. Kershaw has really stepped up their game in the past 5 years regardless of where the blade is made, even their foreign stuff beats many others in fit & finish, this US piece is no exception, RIDICULOUSLY sharp, straight out of the box, & the edge keeps holding, I bought mine locally about a month ago, & have yet to even touch up the blade on a fine ceramic rod, even after weeks of breaking down recycling & other mundane chores. Really great grip for a little fixed blade, the G10 is rough enough for a wet handed grip, but gentle enough where it won't tear up your palm under protracted use. Nice full belly for those guys who hunt & will use it as its "skinner" name implies. great value, & bravo to Kershaw for continuing to improve their quality again, on foreign knives, & 100% USA made ones like this, the 14c28n steel is, i think, a Sandvik/Kershaw exclusive, & cuts & holds with the best of them, I like this steel better than 154cm...great knife.
