Great for skinning, caping and countless other tough jobs, the Elk Ridge Pakkawood Fixed Blade Knife packs a lot of muscle in a compact, easy-to-carry package. The stout 4 1/10" stainless steel blade boasts a robust straight-back spine and an edge that's carefully honed to razor sharp. Polished to a brilliant shine, the steel guard and bolster beautifully offsets the blade's mellow nonreflective satin finish. The handsome pakkawood handle is ergonomically contoured and includes a generous finger choil for maximum control and comfort, and minimal slippage and fatigue. Built into the handle, a steel reinforced lanyard hole provides a handy tethering or carrying option, along with the included nylon belt sheath. Best of all, this 8 2/5" beauty is surprisingly affordable, yet it outperforms knives priced twice as high! It's perfect for budget-conscious hunters, anglers, trappers, outdoorsmen or anyone who simply needs a dependable fixed blade for household and/or farm chores.
