The American made Kershaw Skinning Knife model 1080 has full tang Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel construction. Kershaw has managed to achieve a simplistic design in this knife that is highly effective. The G-10 scales of the handle allow the user to stabilize their grip for added control of the 2 3/8 inch blade. The knife weighs in at 2.2 ounces, making it comfortable to use. A leather sheath is included with the Kershaw Skinning Knife for safe carrying and storage.
