A Great Bushcraft Knife!
The R. Murphy skinning knife is a big knife, disguised as a medium knife!The handle enables you to hold this knife in many different ways and it gives you a lot of control over the blade. I gave the scales a quick sanding, to smoothen up the edges.The grind is kind of a scandi-grind with a secondary bevel. The spine is just over 2 mm. These things ad up to a very efficient and yet sturdy cutter. The blade comes reasonably sharp, and it is 1095 carbon steel, so it will be easy to sharpen. The sheath is a scandi/bushcraft-sheath and is well made. The finish on my knife though, is not fantastic. The tip of the knife has a small imperfection and there is a little space between the wooden scales and the tang.I read a lot about some peoples opinion, that american knives should be made in America. Well, that's fine, but then these finish issues, should be adressed, if you hope to have returning customers. For the money though, this is well worth it, especially since there are not many knives out there, quite like this one.Great service from Knifecenter and iGlobal.
