Skinning, quartering, dressing, light splitting, shaving, and whittling are only a few of the things the Diskin Hunter is capable of. Designed by custom maker Matt Diskin to be a field dressing knife that could also perform camp tasks, the 1085 is the happy medium between functional blade size and svelte, compact design. The blade is 4-5/8″ long with tons of belly and shaped like a cross between the Tremor and Rake models. The steel is 14C28N stainless, which will take an extremely sharp edge and provide excellent corrosion resistance so you won’t have to worry about your blade rusting out in the field. The thing that sets the Diskin Hunter apart is the handle. Made from textured G10, the handle being only one inch at it’s widest point makes it easy to get a good grip on, especially with gloved hands. The knife comes with a high quality leather belt sheath and is backed by the Kershaw lifetime warranty. Best of all is it’s made in the USA and can be found at www.knifecenter.com.

New Kershaw Field Knife and Skinner
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.
Both of these American made knives are going for under $40.
