U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- I received a slick looking little knife made by CRKT named the Hunt’N Fisch Knife. In most….or rather all Product Reviews I start off covering the functionality of a product and then if it has nice eye appeal I may wrap up with a sentence or two covering that dimension. On this Product Review though I’m going to start off with the eye appeal features. So that probably gives you a hint. I like the looks of the little CRKT Hunt’N Fisch knife.
I think the first thing that caught my eye was the simulated wood handle. It is nice looking. Upon closer inspection of the handle I then noticed the three brads that hold on the handle. They are classy. (It is actually a multi-colored G10 handle).
A unique feature is that it has grooves on top of the spine to stabilize your thumb so you can choke down on it while doing intricate skinning but an inch from the tip it has another set of grooves. I don’t have any other knives with two sets of spine grooves. And between both sets of grooves is a design to spice up the looks.
The handle has a finger groove but another unique feature is that the tang has some grooves on the bottom side for your pointer finger. Granted the handle covers them almost 100% but they do slightly improve your grip.
Then the sheath is a nice-looking leather sheath and rides sideways on your belt.
Now let’s get into the real Product Review. Again, like on the last CRKT knife that I reviewed something about it made me automatically like it. I think it’s a combination of looks and the fine structure of the knife. It’s not a big Rambo Bowie type of knife and yet I can see how it would be a sweet knife to carry.
I’m not sure what classification that I would put it into. I think it’d work fine for skinning deer. It has a drop point but also, I believe it has enough of a point to be able to cut the pattern. So, I think it’d be ok for skinning deer.
I think it’d also be a nice little knife to carry for general all-round tasks while hunting, camping, fishing, rafting etc. I think it’d also be a sweet little knife to carry on the ranch while cowboying or on the farm. I know I’ve said it before but some day I’m going to count how many times throughout the day that I use a knife. I know I use a knife a lot but I think the actual number of times would surprise me.
I normally carry a 3 ½-inch straight blade but I could make this one work. The full-sized handle appeals to me as well as the small sleekness of it. And it doesn’t hurt that it’s a pretty little knife. Oh well, just one more knife that I can’t live without!
