Hi Russ,

Just dropping you a short e-mail to let you know that I just returned from my safari in South Africa where your knives performed flawlessly. I took both the semi-skinner and the drop point and was able to use them both to skin my Zebra stallion. Besides looking great they are the best knives I have ever had the pleasure of using. You were correct when you said I dont need a big knife, I need a sharp knife!! The horizontal cross draw sheath never got in the way and I never knew the knife was even there, great design. As you know I have another idea for one of your knives and look forward to working with you on it's design. Thanks again for taking the time to make sure I had a "custom" knife that was going to meet my specific needs.

It was the coolest moment being there with my 12 year old son. He made a picture perfect 205 yard shot in a split second of time as the elk where moving through the brush. I couldn't be more proud. Taking him varmint hunting really sharpened his skills and paid off well today.

Russ, the knife was just awesome! Here are some notes on my new small orange semi-skinner knife.

  • This was the first time I used only one knife from start to finish.
  • I boned the elk out one hour faster than normal...and I wasn't trying to go fast.
  • I sat the knife down at one point and then needed it and made the comment "Now where's my knife." My son quickly says "Right there Dad, good thing it's bright orange instead of camo..." Honest, those were my 12 year olds words. Exactly why I wanted a brightly colored knife.
  • This was the first time I went from start to finish without sharpening my knife.
  • The knife cleans very quickly compared to the folders I normally use.
  • The sizing was perfect even for getting out the tenderloin without puncturing the gusts.

Awesome knife Russ! Thanks for helping me see the light as to what a real knife should be like.

Dallen did it again! I had another wonderful day in the field with my son. Hunting offers such a great opportunity to spend quality time with your kids. 

Dallen shot this cow at 272 yards. One shot through the broiler room and she was finished. Two shots and two elk!

I used the knife again. What a joy! I wish I had this knife 20 years ago. I wanted to let you know that I haven't ran this blade on anything to sharpen it. It boned out this animal in a breeze — razor sharp through two elk! Awesome knife!

Thanks again,

Russ has hunted all of North American big game but his passion is still the Whitetail deer. Pictured here is Russ, his brother Brad, and two nice whitetail deer taken on North Dakota opening day.
