We don’t know whether a hunting knife should really be called elegant. But if any hunting knife could, it would be the Diskin Hunter. And its elegance would come from its perfect match of form with function.
The Diskin Hunter has a big, drop-point blade that’s ideal for a wide range of field-dressing tasks. Of course, this nice, wide blade makes a great skinner, but it’s also capable of helping with all kinds of other campsite tasks, handling each one with ease and strength. And speaking of strength, the Diskin Hunter’s blade is built of premium 14C28N stainless steel. As part of Kershaw’s American-Made Hunters series, this hunter—like so many of those who use it—is made in the USA.
You’ll also note the slim handle that custom knifemaker, Matt Diskin, put on his Diskin Hunter. The handle style is classic Diskin—slimmer, yet completely secure in the hand. The textured G-10 scales have a wide edge bevel for a super-comfortable grip. To appreciate it, you’ll really need to wrap your hand around it—which you’ll easily be able to do, even with gloves on.
With its perfect match of Diskin form to all-purpose hunting knife function, the Diskin Hunter is sure to become your go-to knife if you prefer a larger, wider blade. A leather sheath with belt loop is
