It seems like knives are getting more and more complex. Sometimes you just need a little simplicity. Kershaw really takes this lesson to heart with the introduction of the Field Knife Hunter and the Skinner. These knives feature a single piece of metal with G-10 scales for grip. This simple design means that there are fewer ways to go wrong. The full flat tang adds stability, and the textured G-10 scales improve grip. The long edge on the Field Knife makes it great for slicing and general tasks, while the deep belly on the Skinner Knife is designed for skinning, as the name suggests.
