  • Custom Hunter comparison

    I snagged the following from the Featured Inventory last week:

    "Custom Hunter"
    Blade Length - 3 3/4"
    Handle Length - 4 1/2"
    Handle Material - Black Micarta
    Thickness - .135"
    Steel - D2

    Since there were two more posted on the Featured Inventory this week I thought I post a few comparison pic's illustrating the difference between this pattern and the K2 General Purpose it closely resembles in case someone is interested and more become available.



    Top to bottom: General Purpose, Custom Hunter, Yukon Pro Skinner







    Both the blade and handle on the Custom are slightly (approximately 1/4" each, 1/2" overall) longer than the K2 and the cutting edge is a continuous arc along a slightly thinner and higher hollow ground blade. The pattern has great balance and my example has Daniel's usual amazing fit and finish.

    This is a great blade!

    FYI - This particular "custom hunter" design has been designated as the Model 50 "Safari Skinner" and is now a standard pattern.
