Product Details

You gaze through the trees to the middle of the clearing: There sits the fattest, most self-satisfied, most blissfully unaware wild boar you’ve ever seen. He doesn’t notice you at all. You live for days like this.

If you’re happiest procuring your meat fresh, you might also like the feel of the 5" Skinning Knife (012-5SK) from Dexter Russell. When you bring a piece of the wild animal kingdom back to the kitchen with you, you certainly need to wield a weapon with a real hardwood handle to do justice to the deliciousness. The high-carbon steel blade will make short work of wild game, so feel free to start planning a seasonal menu out of whatever furry delicacy comes trotting into your view.

Additional Considerations

To prevent rusting, these products must be hand dried after washing. They are not coated like other Dexter-Russell items and will rust if air dried.

Customer Reviews

5" Skinning Knife is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Ideal Fisherman's Knife! After trying to find this knife on several sites. I am glad to report my complete satisfaction with it. I first saw this knife being used on a fish cleaning video. Now, I plan to purchase 3 more to present as gifts to fellow anglers in Florida, Michigan, and Texas. Only drawback is that it will oxidize, so we have to season it like we do cast iron skillets.

Customer Questions

you dont have in black handle

Asked by: mozaro
The Dexter-Russell (012-5SK) - 5" Skinning Knife does not come in a black handle. The SB12-6 is a 6" white skinning knife. There are other brands which offer skinning knives in black. Please call our Sales Department directly at 877-877-5655 and an Account Manager will walk you through all the options and price points to help you find the right product.
