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.

Is it a tactical combat knife or a wilderness blade? That’s for you to decide. The Combat Kukri from KA-BAR is an extremely versatile knife built to handle the toughest tasks with ease. Fitted with an 8-1/2″ curved blade, the Kukri is well designed for chopping and hacking or for draw cuts and slashes. The Kraton handle provides a good, hand-filling grip and also helps to reduce shock absorbed by the hand. The pommel at the butt end adds to the knife’s capabilities, allowing for light hammering and smashing duties. For a knife measuring in at just over 13″, the best thing about the Combat Kukri is it’s weight. At 13.4 ounces, you get enough weight behind it to get the job done but the balance of the knife makes it feel much lighter and it’s very very maneuverable. Whether you’re a combat professional or weekend camper, try out a Combat Kukri for yourself and find out just how great this knife really is. Best of all, it’s proudly made in the USA and available at www.knifecenter.com.
