This skinning knife is very easy to use because of the curve of the blade and the rigidity of the steel.

So, having stood the test of time and being of the highest quality, you need to get yours now.

Wooden handle knives are the most popular handle material in the world. The Traditional line of cutlery has stood the test of time and is the choice of many who appreciate the feel of a wood handle. This Traditional Knife features a high-carbon steel blade. Including an individually ground and honed edge for just the right flexibility and durability. Unique edge geometry ensures a long lasting blade edge, and easily restored performance every time it’s sharpened. The handles are durable and require minimal maintenance if cared for properly, these knives will last you a lifetime. There is something to be said for great American made knives that have been used since the early 1800’s. Made in USA.

Care: Because these have a wood handle and high carbon steel, they should be hand washed and dried. The blade will get a black patina with use. Avoid rust by adding a coat of mineral oil. Ask the old timers, they swear by them.

    Just Received It And The Quality Is Excellent. I should have ordered the sharpener at the same time, I want the sharpener BUT I don’t want to pay for the freight.

    Being a deer and elk outfitter I clean dozens of animals a year, and have about every skinning knife made. But the Green River is far and away the best knife I have ever used, which includes knives costing ten times as much.
