Case Brown Synthetic Knife - Folding Hunter
Case Folding Hunter
This is the knife I carry when I hunt. It folds up and is out of the way on my belt in it's secure case sheath; snapped and forgotten until I need it. When I do need it, I rest secure in the knowledge that it has stayed sharp and the surgical steel is not corroded or rusted like many other brands of knives. In the decades that I have had this knife, I have skinned and boned many types of game, fowl, and fish. This knife holds a dependable edge and when it needs to be touched up, takes but a minute or two to resharpen with one of two swipes on a medium stone and several reverse strops on a good piece of 3inch wide leather(first the rough side, then the smooth). Did this last two years ago and now I just finished again after skinning my last deer. I know what I am talking about as I probably have gutted/skinned/cleaned enough game, fish, or fowl to fill a couple of storage buildings. The key is to strop your blades. It smooths the rough and prolongs the blades. Practice enough and this knife will last you long past the time you are ready to hand it down to your grandkid. Yes, I know that it does not have all the new age bells and whistles, but it is a Case XX and it does a fantastic job. This knife epitomizes American Craftsmanship at a time when America was second to none. It is deceptive in it's looks, but to a real Hunter it shows that you are serious in your gear and knowledgeable about what you do. I am an old man and have used mine all over the world and the only time and only thing that can panic me is to think that I left this knife behind on a hunt. That's why I have accumulated more than one over the years. I personally think that the only way you could make this knife better would to be to buy a 3000 to 6000 grit Japanese sharpening stone to touch it up with. But that would be an overkill. You just need a medium Arkansas stone and a leather strop a couple of times a year after heavy usage. Longwinded, but I have liked this knife for decades.

no belt needed
I PACK THIS KNIFE AND IT CAN GUT A BUCK FROM STEM TO STERN FAST. I SKIN ON A TARP, IT'S SO FAST, YOUR HEAD WILL SPIN ,INSTEAD OF THE BUCK ON A ROPE SPINNING.IF NO TARP, SKINNING ON IT'S OWN SKIN. THIN YOU CUT OFF THE LEG'S AFTER, THE LEG'S WILL HELP YOU HOLD THE BUCK SKINNING. I'V HAD MY KNIFE FOR FORTY YEARS.AND I DON'T NEED A BELT.IT;S THE BEST. I KEEP A SKINNING KNIFE IN MY TRUCK WHEN THERE IS MORE THAN ONE BUCK . THIS IS A KEEP SAKE KNIFE. LOCK BLADE NOT NEEDED......

I bought this knife for my dad. It was replacing the exact same knife (schrade brand) that was 30 years old and desperately needed to be put away. He loved it.
