Those fixed blades are sweet Craig!
They are all nice Craig, especially the Stags!
I have a few Case fix blades. I just inherited a Case filet knife my Dad used for many years. I have an old Case hunting knife I bought off eBay several years ago. Now Case has partnered with Daniel Winkler to introduced the Case-Winkler Skinner. Daniel Winkler has produced cutting tools for over 30 years. I met him at the Blade Show last summer. He is a very gracious man. His knives are carried by special operators from many countries around the world. https://winklerknives.com/
I received my Skinner sample a couple of weeks ago. My first impression was this knife is made by Case but has Winkler written all over it. In fact it says Winkler on the opposite side of the blade from the Case marking. The blade is right at the maximum length I like my skinning knives at 5 1/4 inches. Here are the specs:
Overall Length: 9.50 inches
Blade Length: 5.125 inches
Cutting Edge: 4.75 inches
Blade Thickness: 0.20 inches
Blade Width: 1.25
Blade Material: 80CrV2
Blade Style: Clip Point
Blade Finish: Black
Edge Type: Plain
Handle Material: G-10 green camo
Weight: 6.62 ounces
Sheath: Black Leather
Model: Winkler Skinner
Can Be Found: $295.00
I too have this knife but I'm not sure if I like the sheath. The knife is nice though!
