This Knife is what I want to carry when I´m in a canoe in Canada´s Backcountry!
I completely modified this skinner blade blank made from high carbon steel by Green River Knives, a company that you would have found traded and in use among tribes and trappers alike in North Americas wilderness as well as in most hunting cabins!
I always loved the back swept curve, flat grind and excellent slicing abilities of these knives, but the crude handles didn´t feel quite right...
Woodsmans Finest Hunter - Prototype
I cold blued this blade, to keep it from rusting, but this will create an even nicer patina over time when butchering meet and fish.
The handle was shaped in my signature style, inspired by classic Dog-Leg pocket knives, with a very positive hand purchase but great choke-up capabilities and thumb ramps for skinning and gutting.
The recurved tip of the knife keeps it from puncturing hides and torsos, when skinning but the added swedge gives it great strength when piercing
I also added a ricasso choil like on all my knives for easier sharpening and esthetics.
The Deepcarry Sheath is made from Wickett&Craig Harness Leather. Hand stiched using awl and needle, with the best thread there is for longevity and strength... German Tiger Thread.
It features a variation of my WCS (Woodsmans Carry System), which allows for vertical, horizontal scout and cross draw as well as diagonal cross draw or use on a Baldric Knife Sling, for added versatility in the woods.
