Case Ridgeback Hunter Fixed Blade Skinner Knife - Rosewood Handle
Should have bought 2
I bought this one recently when BP had a 10% sale going on for members, and I got another 10% off for military. I checked out the ones with the black and camo handle and they didn't feel as nice in the hand so I went with this one. Wife and I shot 3 deer the other day, so we both had to skin before meat went bad. I used a Gerber skinner and she used my new Case. Hands down, the Case was far superior than any knife I've purchased or used. My only issue now is that the wife won't give it up; for the deal I should have bought two!!! Take advantage of the deals and buy you a couple if you can. I will buy another one once I'm able to!!! The sheath looks and feels awesome, pure leather!!!

I was initially very disappointed with this knife when I opened the box and was planning on returning it. The blade had several very noticeable nicks and didn't seem to be sharpened from the factory. But I needed another knife in my arsenal and figured for $30 what do I have to lose. After a thorough sharpening, I'm glad I decided to keep it. The blade gets sharp and stays sharp. It's also great for breasting ducks, much easier than my Buck Vanguard. Overall, not as pretty or as "finished" looking as a Buck, but a good value for the money. Would buy again.

Great Overall Knife
I've had this knife for little over a year now. I gutted and clean a Pronhorn and gutted three Elk with it so far, as well as cut open many bales of hay. I didn't have to sharpen it until I was deboneing the Elk. It is well ballanced in your hand. The shape allows you to get a firm grip on it when cutting something tuff. It "unzips" critters like a champ. Its my go to knife for any job. This knife out preformed my buddy's Hen&Roster and his Cold Steel knives. Amazing knife for the price. Can't say enough good things about it.

Made in the USA
Excellent steel as always with any Case knife. Razor sharp out of the box and nothing beats a full tang fixed blade. I was a little disappointed by the sheath but the knife alone is a great deal at 30 bucks. The only drawback on the knife I experienced was the non-blade edges of the steel were a little sharp at a flat 90 degrees. I sanded them down to smooth them out. Love the fact they still are made in the U.S.A. Overall it's a great product. Remember, you can never have too many knives!
