For many hunters, gut hooks make processing game easier. That?s why we added it to this version of the Deschutes ? Skinner. The gut hook is fast and efficient for gutting wild game, and we even thickened the tip to ensure it lasts a lifetime. Plus, the contoured, ergonomic handle features a polypropylene material for extra durability, while an olive rubber overlay gives users maximum grip. Choke up on the finger choil and use the thumb ramp for even more control. The blade?s D2 tool steel is sharp and long-lasting for even the toughest hunting jobs. Its included sheath retains the blade during travel while also being easy-to-operate when it?s time to work. If you prefer working with a gut hook, this Deschutes is a top contender.
