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.Sounds like an experience issue.
I plan on usin it if I get one this year since I didn't have any luck last year.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.
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.
This is just my opinion and mine only, but the handle to me seems to1/8 of an in as best as I can tell usin daughters ruler.
