Columbia River Onion Shakaulu Fixed Hunting Knife K900KKP is a versatile tool for heavy-duty skinning and dressing tasks, with a gut hook, a fully curved razor-sharp skinning edge, and a handle that allows it to be used as a cleaver to separate pelvic bones, or even to quarter a large carcass in the field. The blade of the CRKT knife is exceptionally thick and heavy, the hallmark of a traditional cleaver, and has a high convex grind for maximum strength. The blade of the CRKT Onion Shakaulu Razor Edge Fixed Skinning Knife is made of 65MN carbon steel for maximum toughness and is black powder coated to resist corrosion. The handle of the knife is made with a tough polypropylene core and finished with soft TPE inserts, giving you a secure grip in cold weather and while wearing gloves. For skinning, CRKT has designed the Shakaulu to be gripped high like an ulu, with the thumb on the thumb hole. For cleaving, it can be gripped by the handle. Carrying the knife is easy; it comes with a special heavy-duty molded polypropylene knife sheath that incorporates a locking pin on a flexible retaining strap that goes through the tool's thumb hole, allowing for secure inverted carry. A removable belt clip is included on the sheath, and it has multiple slots and grommets to allow lashing to a backpack or pack animal. For a versatile hunting and skinning knife that will add efficiency and speed to your field dressing routine, choose the Columbia River Knife & Tool Onion Shakaulu Fixed Cleaver / Skinning Knife.
