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.

I'm impressed and pleased with this Kershaw
Just received the Kershaw Diskin 1085 today (July, 2017) and am impressed so far. I really like the blade shape and handle profile. I normally where x-large gloves and this knife fits my hand well. As the blade is somewhat thin, the knife really isn't meant for heavy work so the handle contours allow me a variety of comfortable hand holds. The blade was very sharp out of the box. I don't really need sharpen it, although I will use my ultra-fine stone to polish the edge. Has been many years that I've seen Kershaw knife I would be willing to buy. With this being made in the U.S.A. and having a size and shape that I find useful, I figured I would give it a try. The only thing I am unsure of is the blade steel. Time will tell how well it will hold up to my usage.

I think it's an underrated knife.
I disagree with those who say the handle on the Diskin Hunter is too small.The handle is thin,but it provides more than enough length.I like the fact i can wrap my hand around the handle thus giving me more balance and control of the knife.I prefer it over straight,thin,square shaped handles or the blocky/bulky ones.The g-10 used is an excellent choice as it does not absorb blood,fluids etc nor rot,smell like micarta can,and it doesn't wear out like kray-ex tends to.The g-10 is nicely contoured and provides good ergonomics.The best feature is the steel used.Swedish 14c28n is a fatastic steel that takes a scary sharp edge,holds it,and resharpens easy.It also has excellent stain/rust resistance as well.The leather sheath is on par with my Buck sheaths imo,but for those who prefer Kydex there's plenty of options online.Overall i feel there's not a mid sized hunting knife out there that has equal to or superior materials than the Diskin Hunter for under $60..

An excellent Knife
On initial purchase of this knife I became worried of the handle size and shape. My hands being quite large would have trouble controlling the blade. I was relieved to find even though the handle was smaller compared to some of my other knives it was comfortable and easy to control. I've used it for a number of task over the past few days and have found no problems with my particular knife. I've striped branches, whittled with it. Batoning it was problematic due to the thin spine chewed up the stick I was using but as you hit towards the tip of the blade where the spine is thickest is should be fine. The sheath Is fine though will loosen with time. Overall this is a fantastic knife and to anyone out there thinking of buying don't hesitate it is well worth the money.
