Hand Forged Skinning Knife - The IHK Skinner
The IHK Skinner
This hand forged skinning knife is by far the most popular in the line up of all IHK!!!
I originally designed this knife (which was the second one I ever designed) to be my one go to skinning knife. Usually when skinning or processing game (most specifically deer) I usually had 3 knives that I would use, my butcher knife, my filet knife and a pocket knife.
I wanted one knife that would do it all. One that had a handle thick enough that would prevent my hand from cramping or getting tight (hand fatigue from a skinny handle). I wanted a knife that would not slip and most importantly one that would work like a scalpal (this drop point is similar to the older pointer skinners of yesteryear).
Lastly, I wanted it to be safe for all and any tasks out in the field, which is why I made the belly deep and a nice choil so my finger couldn't slip up on the blade.
All these details are certainly the reason for it's popularity let alone it's absolute stunning Beauty!!!
