KS1085: Kershaw 1085 Diskin Hunter, G10 Handles
Kershaw Knives
Skinning, quartering, dressing, light splitting, shaving, and whittling are only a few of the things the Diskin Hunter is capable of. Designed by custom maker Matt Diskin to be a field dressing knife that could also perform camp tasks, the 1085 is the happy medium between functional blade size and svelte, compact design. The blade is 4-5/8″ long with tons of belly and shaped like a cross between the Tremor and Rake models. The steel is 14C28N stainless, which will take an extremely sharp edge and provide excellent corrosion resistance so you won’t have to worry about your blade rusting out in the field. The thing that sets the Diskin Hunter apart is the handle. Made from textured G10, the handle being only one inch at it’s widest point makes it easy to get a good grip on, especially with gloved hands. The knife comes with a high quality leather belt sheath and is backed by the Kershaw lifetime warranty. Best of all is it’s made in the USA.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Blade Material
Cons: None
Good Knife, But...
It's difficult to criticize a Kershaw knife. They are out-of-the-box sharp, well designed, well made, and attractively priced. This knife has a beefed-up blade, as befits a hunter. But the handle/grip is much too small to control a hefty blade. My fitted glove size is L (scale: S-M-L-XL), but I couldn't recommend this knife for anyone with other than small hands. Everything else is what one should expect from Kershaw, but it has no usefulness as intended, and ranks as a waste of good steel, design, and craftsmanship.

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Finish, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Hair Poppin Goodness
The knife and its sheath make for easy side carry, without being too bulky. The knife came hair shaving sharp out of the box, and is very comfortable and functional. An overall great utility blade that should work well in most outdoor situations.
