The Boot Skinner knife kit is a very high quality modern utility knife/skinner combo design. This design works well as a compact skinner knife (with traditional handle treatment), or as a utility knife (with a tactical handle treatment). This knife kit model is 6 inches in overall length with a 2.75 inch skinner blade. It comes standard with 420 stainless steel bolsters and matching 420 stainless steel bolster pins. This version is the combo kit. It comes with all of the basic kit parts, plus pre-machined Lacewood handle scales to simplify the completion process.
Our pre-machined knife handle scales are slightly thicker and larger in diameter than the knife handle tang that they are designed for. This allows for proper sanding, shaping, and artistic embellishment. These are also undrilled to allow for precise placement control and to maximize fastening options. If you want to begin from an easier starting point, the combo kit with pre-machined scales will help you insure that your kit completion will be smooth and successful.
The blade thickness on the boot skinner is 0.117 inches. The blade is constructed from high-performance AUS8 stainless steel and is hollow ground. This skinning knife design features (2) 0.125 inch bolster holes, (2) 0.156 inch tang holes (stainless steel pinstock included) and a 0.250 inch thong hole for customer optioned lanyard (stainless steel thong hole tubing included).
