Each Light Hunter is hand made from the same incredibly tough, fully annealed, double-drawn and cryogenically-treated D-2 tool steel as our award-winning Brown Bear. The blade is a full 1/4" thick, just like the big Brown Bear; however, it is 3" shorter. We also added a large capacity gut-hook, so the thick hair of sheep, mountain goats, elk, and big northern whitetails won't "ball up" as experienced with smaller gut-hooks." The Cub Bear Caping Knife: "The Cub Bear Caping Knife is lightweight and designed for fine detail work. Field-tested alongside the Skinner/Cleavers in the Alaskan bush, the Cub Bear's overall length is 6-1/2" with a cutting edge of 2-3/4".
This blade is ideal for fine caping. It includes 2 knives, one sheath, and one field sharpening steel. It appears that the steel has some surface oxide. Neither knife has ever been sharpened other than what was conducted by the factory. There are a couple of surface marks on the Light Hunter, but it is only from insertion and removal from the sheath.
I looked closely at the edge surfaces and they are perfect to my unaided eye. They have always remained in the sheath, so they should be perfect.
The stag handles make it even nicer in my opinion. The item "Knives of Alaska Light Hunter Combo Stag Handles with Sheath (00013FG)" is in sale since Thursday, January 07, 2016.
