Mode One's Paleo™ Skinner (MO-SK-001) is designed to be a universal hunting/survival knife. The MO-SK-001's long curved blade specializes in skinning and cleaning wild game while the almost 1/8 inch thick blade makes this knife every strong and useful for surviving in the wilderness. The knife's full tang provides great rigidity and stability. The jimping along the top side of the blade provides grip in slippery conditions. The jimping also allows you the choke up on the blade for precision while still remaining in control. The blade's subtle yet effect point and long edge makes this knife handy for many tasks. The handle is ergonomically designed to be comfortable in your hand, however you may hold the knife. The handle scales are made of G10 composite material that is textured for grip. The G10 handle scales are very durable, tough, and can put up with a lot of abuse. The knife's weight is shifted just slightly toward the butt of the handle making it well balanced in the hand. There is a lanyard hole located at the end of the handle for convenience and personal preference.
