Canadian Belt Knife - An economical knife patterned after the famous Russel Canadian Belt knife. It has a poly handle and 4.5" German 4116 stainless steel blade. We carry this knife to fill a couple needs for back country travellers. First, it is a great choice as a primary knife for those who want economy but still want a quality steel, paper cutting sharp out of the box, and a wonderful feel while handling in all uses, including skinning game. Second it is a great back up knife that is very light and can be tossed in a pack or kitchen box. It has a great feel so many use it as a kitchen and steak knife as well. Although is is a skinning blade design the point is sharp and great for horse people who at times need to poke holes in leather.
