Custom Handmade Tanto Skinner with Micarta Handle
Hometown Knives Damascus skinner is a hand crafted custom knife that appeals to all hunters. HTS-4 skinner has over 25 hrs of work into forging, filing, fitting, grinding, polishing. The dark micarta scales are locked in place with flanged screws. The handle is roughed off for a firm grip. The knife is weighted to have a balance point just above the bolster, to better help in long skinning jobs. Impressive workmanship on this knife! ONE OF MY FAVORITES!!! The Knife is fitted to Italian leather which has an amazing feel to it.
