The Knife

The knife has long been an essential tool for the outdoorsman and man kind in general. The outdoors enthusiast would never be caught without it. When you step out the door, it is the first tool in your pack or pocket, it is a sort of companion on all your great adventures. At Hook Knives we believe that companion aught to be a little part of you, a part of who you are. So let us make your dream knife to fit you.

More Caper product testing on a black bear

As you all know I love to use my own product in the field to arm myself with hands on knowledge of what works best and what doesn't. This season I was blessed with the opportunity to harvest a bear with a bow, a first for me, and of course, used my trusty caper for the skinning!  I still find it to be the most comfortable and fastest skinner for my hands.  Edge retention on this project is difficult to evaluate since I had been carrying the knife and using it for some time before I started skinning, but I was able to do the majority of the bear before making a couple passes on a hone steel to straighten the edge near the tip and it's cutting like a champ again. 
No big trophy bear, but a darned good day in creation, and good meat in the freezer.
