Buck Gen-5™ Skinner 3″ Blade Skinner with Rosewood Handle and Nylon Sheath
The Buck Gen-5™ Skinners just keep getting better. This new one is a regular production model with gorgeous rosewood handle and 154CM top quality steel blade. It is the brainchild of the latest generation Buck, Josh. His great, great grandfather would be proud.
Here are the specifications from the manufacturer:
There’s a little bit of Al Buck’s streamlined thinking in the lean, simple lines that set the tone for the Buck Gen-5™ knife. Josh Buck took many of the same design elements that made great grandfather’s knife so popular and created the Buck Gen-5™. By taking out the bulk typically found in skinning knives, the Gen-5 functions impeccably without added weight.
