Freeman Outdoor Gear's Model 451 4.25", the "Skinner," definitely lives up to its name. This beast of a blade is perfect as a heavy-use field, utility, or survival knife, packing a lot of punch into a compact, comfortable package.
The Model 451's 4.25-inch stainless 154CM steel blade is stonewashed, heat-treated and tempered to an RC rating of 58-60, providing the perfect balance between hardness and toughness. Each side of the blade is ground to a precise, razor-sharp 20 degree angle, offering a blade that sharpens well and retains its sharpness exceptionally. At 3/16" thick, the Skinner blade is durable enough to withstand the heaviest use.

An exposed, jimped pommel adds to the versatility of the Skinner, providing a sturdy hammering surface. The 451 Skinner comes equipped with a 550 cord lanyard, and slots in both the pommel and front guard offer added adaptability.
