Please read our Terms below for details. PLEASE NOTE: We take our photos in natural light outdoors and as a result there are sometimes reflections or shadows or glare shown in the blades. In person none of these exist; we will say so in the description if it may be otherwise. LISTEN: this is one of the very best hunting/skinning knives you'll ever come across but please be sure you understand its size, which is LARGE.If you intend to use it you won't need to have a very big hand but whether you do or not you'll find none finer. This beautifully wrought custom J. McCullough knife was hand-forged with a heavy duty carbon tool steel blade that was made by reforging and heat-treating an old rasp, one of the finest sources of blade-stock one can find. The maker wisely left on it some forge finish, which inhibits rusting as well as giving it a rusticity that's hard to come by. Handle was made of finely figured rosewood over a full tang.
Its curved, very sharp blade is somewhat reminiscent of a Nepalese kukri and is heavy enough to split a bunch of kindling from a log for a quick fire but balanced in the hand so that it never feels clumsy or unwieldy. Without doubt it's a superb skinner and jointer of fallen game, yet it also will help you whittle away the hours in front of a campfire without putting any fatigue on your hand or wrist; I think there's literally nothing this knife can't do and do well. This piece is one of a handful of McCullough knives I've owned and used over the years--and I can't say enough about them--but this one is by far the finest of them all. He also made the sheath for this knife and it, too, is of the very finest quality fitting the knife like the proverbial glove. It weighs in, without sheath, at a very hefty 14.2 ounces and measures 13-5/8" long with an 8-5/8" blade that's about 3/16 thick.By any measure this is a HUGE find for the right person and something you'll rightly come to think of as an heirloom.
