The new Escalade series knives are built to last with a rugged, edge-holding 440-C stainless steel blade forged in either a functional skinner type or versatile drop point style. Excellent balance and extremely functional blade shapes make quick work of field dressing and skinning game. If you prefer the warmth and beauty of wood, a fine box elder burl has been selected to perfectly offset the polished steel blade and mirror-like bolsters. If function is chosen ahead of form, models with durable Kraton rubber handles ensure a positive grip.
