HUNT­ING

Knives Illustrated - - HUNTING -

TRUTH BE TOLD, HUNT­ING CAN BE A MESSY OR­DEAL.

From skin­ning, to break­ing down game, to chop­ping through sinew, mus­cle and even bone, it takes a tough knife to stand up to the rig­ors of the hunt­ing ground. In ad­di­tion, muck, grime and dirt can do se­vere dam­age to both blade and sheath, so it takes a spe­cial­ized knife to tackle th­ese con­stant prob­lems. Th­ese re­lent­less knives have the power to keep press­ing on­ward un­til the job is done, cul­mi­nat­ing in a highly suc­cess­ful and re­ward­ing hunt.
