Buck 537 Open Season Skinner 0537RWS-B, rosewood
The Buck Open Season Skinner is a very solid skinning knife, ideal for hunting. The big belly of the blade makes it a lot easier to skin game. The back has jimping for your thumb so you can apply much more pressure. It has it around the crop and the direction of the tip of the knife, so real precision work is no problem.
The Open Season Skinner is very sturdy with its full-tang construction. This means that the steel of the blade extends through the whole handle. The back of the handle has a subtle hole for a lanyard.
The knife comes in a black leather belt sheath.

This knife is a beaut, one of the sharpest blades iv bought, it feel good in yourhand and there's plenty of handle to grip I love this knife I love the shape of it well recommended. The wooden handle doesn't quiet go to the top or bottom of the tang inside but that's just an observation and doesn't make any difference compared to the one advertised. Now the sheath it's an interesting design and I really like it put the blade in half way down then drop the rest in, it's different however with the blade as sharp as it is it has caught and cut the leather occasionally however whilst I like the blade and the look of the sheath it robustness is great to but the finish and way it's made is crap maybe it's just mine but the thickness of where the leather joins varies the button works but is all mashed inside however it all works so whilst it's not perfect it gives it a hand made feel.
