I've always felt that Kershaw makes excellent knives and the sharpest, out of the box knives.

Nice gift.

I have one and it's my go-to deer skinner. Holds a fine edge. I use a Lansky to keep it razor sharp.

Well I tried to skin a possum with it, and to me I didn't like it to well. Seemed like it wanted to cut the hide more than peel it. Will have to try it on somethin bigger and see if that makes a difference. If it don't then I'll have a boot knife cuz it cuts through meat real good.

Sounds like an experience issue.
Could be if I hadn't skint several thousand possum and ****. Now it still may be since all I have ever used is a huntin knife to do my skinnin with, which I haven't cut that many hides with. Course most of my small game skinnin has been done with a pocket knife. This is the first "skinnin" knife I've ever used. Now my dad said the same bout usin it fer skinnin, but it'll do a ceserian just fine.

That's a fine looking skinner!
Like small game hides, as thin as they are, rabbitts and such, might take a "thinner" blade.
But for deer and such, I'd bet the skinner you have will wok wonders.

This is just my opinion and mine only, but the handle to me seems to
be to "bulky" and not shaped right.

Some time back a friend of mine had an Outdoor Edge skinner, and with it's
handle design, it worked wonders on a coyote that we shinned out.
The handle just felt good to the hand and a great "skinning"
type of motion working.

I've never used this type of knife I always had a huntin knife that I use to skin everythin and it works great. Since I have corn right next to the house that means I'll have winter wheat so I should get to try it on a deer this year. Of course I will post my thoughts on how well it worked fer what they are worth.

Cool knife bud, I carry a kershaw in my boot and a kershaw zero tolerance tiger strip up top. Both great quality.

I had trouble skinning with a "laser" sharp knife also. Seems like it's easier to undress the small stuff with a knife that's dull, but it gets easier as you practice. Nice knife.
