This is a very nice Semi Skinner that was commissioned and delivered in 2011. Craig Forged this one out of W2 and applied a matching Gun Kote finish to the blade. A nice Distal Taper and front Swedge on the blade make it light and easily handled.
The Forest Green Canvas Micarta handles have a semi polished surface but will still give plenty of grip if wet or muddy. The handle leaves plenty of room for a full grip and the turned down butt will help keep the knife firmly in your palm.
The Thick Bridle Leather Sheath is by Sherry Lott of Green River leather and it has been modified to hang low on the belt to allow for more comfortable wear when Sitting in a Tree Stand or in the Truck.
Pre-owned but never used or sharpened. The blade has a couple of minor spots on the coating, overall the entire package is still near mint. An excellent value on a Custom knife of this quality.
