Boone Damascus Steel Skinner Knife
Daniel Boone lived larger than life and is frequently the archetypal Western hero of American folklore. Boone was famous for hunting and trapping, exploration, being a militia officer, surveyor, and merchant. He even founded the village of Boonesborough, Kentucky.
In 1776, Boone’s daughter and two other teenage girls were captured by an Indian war party and carried the girls away from Boonesborough. Boone and a few men pursued after them and caught them two days later. While the Indian’s were stopping for food, Boone and his men ambushed the group. They rescued the girls and drove off their captors. This was one of the most iconic stories of Boone’s life and was memorialized in a fictionalized version of the story in The Last of the Mohicans.
We have named this small skinning knife after Daniel Boone as we feel it would be a knife he would have carried on his many adventures. Made of 1095 and 15n20 steels, the high carbon content of 1095 gives this knife an extremely sharp and durable edge and makes it the ideal choice for a skinning knife. The compact blade and large handle gives the user exceptional control. A forefinger groove and ground ridges along the spine gives the user plenty of leverage when using the knife. A lanyard hole finishes off this great knife and makes it easy to draw from the leather holster.
Whether you are a hunter or just want a great knife for EDC, this is the perfect choice for the discerning collector.
