Columbia River (CRKT) Ken Onion Skinner Hunting Knife
The best works of art aren't merely completed and then sent out into the world. Instead, they're modified, tested, and reworked countless times. One look at the CRKT Onion Skinner and you'll see why that often leads to perfection.
Renowned knifemaker Ken Onion designed the Onion Skinner but spent more than five years giving it to hunters and taxidermists for feedback. After continuous modifications and repeated testing, the Onion Skinner proved its worth in the real world.
Although some were skeptical of the unusual hunting knife, it quickly won people over by revealing its true value as a versatile knife.
The knife features a 3.75-inch three-quarter tang made from Bohler K110 stainless steel. Although it has a high-hollow grind at the blade, the thin tip has a slightly convex grind to minimize drag for detailed work.
A pronounced camel hump at the top of the blade makes skinning an animal easier without the risk of puncturing the paunch.
Even though the blade is nearly flawless, the same amount of thought and effort went into crafting a worthy handle.
The scales are Twin-Fused with a Zytel core and soft textured TPR outside for a comfortable and secure grip.
Finally, a custom leather sheath grips the scales of the knife to keep the knife encased until you need it.
