Knives of Alaska Light Hunter Skinner Cleaver Fixed 4" D2 Bead Blast Blade with Gut Hook, Black Santoprene SureGrip Handles, Brown Leather Sheath - 00010FG
AK00010FG: Light Hunter SureGrip
Knives of Alaska
The Light Hunter Skinner/Cleaver is designed especially for hunters who need a powerful blade to cut through medium-size bones and perform heavy duty skinning tasks. Deer, sheep and mountain goat hunters, who hunt on extended, strenuous, high altitude expeditions, will find it to be an excellent tool that keeps the equipment weight to a minimum, yet still has enough heft to do field-dressing jobs easily and efficiently. Each Light Hunter is handmade from the same incredibly tough, fully annealed, double-drawn and cryogenically-treated D-2 tool steel as the award-winning Brown Bear. The blade is a full 0.25" thick, just like the big Brown Bear; however, it is 3" shorter. Knives of Alaska also added a large capacity gut hook, so the thick hair of sheep, mountain goats, elk, and big northern whitetails won't "ball up" as experienced with smaller gut hooks.
