Cold Steel
Modesty seldom comes into play when Cold Steel describes how good their knives are. But in the case of the Master Hunter, they've been unquestionably negligent in that department. So, modesty aside, Cold Steel has gone on record and say, without a doubt, the Master Hunter is the best hunting knife you can obtain at any price. It features a broad VG-1 San Mai III blade that's been flat ground to achieve the ideal blade cross-section and edge geometry. Carefully honed to razor sharpness, its edge cuts effortlessly while its dropped point simplifies the chore of field dressing and skinning.

The spine of the blade is a full 3/16" thick to allow for the necessary strength and stiffness to field dress and skin the biggest animals like elk, moose, brown bear, and the African Dangerous Seven. The grip is specially designed to promote long use without fatigue. Made of the shock absorbent, slightly tacky feeling Kray-Ex, and featuring the deeply checkered surface, it positively won't slip no matter how wet or bloody your hands get. Plus, Kray-Ex has specially enduring advantages in that it will never rot, shrink, crack, splinter, or mildew, and is completely impervious to even the harshest weather. For safety, the Master Hunter comes in a thick, heavy Conceal-Ex sheath that will accommodate just about any size belt and allow you to carry it all day without fatigue.

Sharing most of the design features of our Master Hunter, this variation features a guthook. This makes it an extremely useful tool for field dressing and opening body cavities without piercing the entrails.

Very well designed skinner
As perfection in human issues doesn't really exist, I may say I've been looking for a very, very good skinner for some time. It wasn't easy but I'm pretty sure I got near my goal by purchasing the Master Hunter San Mai III. Lovely knife, indeed, very well executed for the task, and comes into a comfortable to carry sheath. If I'm to tell any cons, that would be I had to sharp it (as I normally do with most of my new knives) to my partucular needs. I'm a boar hunter and those fellows have a harsh skin like sole in some parts of the bodie. I do like alot the knife so, consequentely, it will have to skin many boars in the years to come.
