Cabela's Alaskan Guide Series 113 Ranger Skinner Knife -
We redefined knife performance with blades crafted of S30V steel by the knife experts at Buck. Developed by Crucible Steel for the cutlery industry and known as the pinnacle of knife-making metals, S30V is composed of metallic powders fused together under intense pressure, heat-tempered, then cooled in a cryogenic freezer. The resulting metal delivers the absolute finest combination of edge retention (45% greater than 420HC), flexibility and hardness (59-61 Rockwell) while remaining easy to sharpen with conventional stones. Its diamond-like carbon coating and high chromium content provide oxidation resistance. Field-testing and independent Cutlery Allied Trade Research Association (C.A.T.R.A.) tests prove these knives will outperform those crafted with other blade metals. Ergonomic rosewood handle. Leather sheath. Made in USA.
Blade length: 3-1/8".
Overall length: 7-1/4".
Weight: 5.2 oz.

Great Knife, But Expensive

Buck has a long history of making decent knives with incredible heat treat. Its standard knives are now becoming obsolete (with 420HC steel). The Alaskan series, however, use the premium S30V stainless that has proven to have incredible edge holding properties, while being tough and rust resistant as well. The only criticism I have is the cost of these knives. I don't know whether it's Buck or Cabela's, but it's expensive for a knife this size, and a sheath that is just this side of being useless. (S30V steel is very good, but it's not a precious metal!) I also find that the brass can be problematic as it can be difficult to clean and keep clean. Still, the knife is probably the best hunting knife you can get. If you're an avid hunter and your knife just ain't making it, you might find it worthwhile to shell out the bucks (no pun intended).

Love it, Love it, Love it!

I purchased the ranger skinner on sale previous to the 2013 hunting season. The knife is beautiful, it came sharp out of the box. I dressed two elk and one buck without re-sharpening. The compact size and light weight make it an ideal choice for carrying deep into the back country or any trek to the hunting grounds. The blade shape is perfect for skinning. This knife is all I need it is the best knife I have used in the last ten years of hunting.

Deer Skinner

Purchased this one for my brother,A retirement gift, he's not retired from" Hunting".He loved it ,skinned and caped multiple deer from multiple states. He said it had perfect balance and weight. A real show stopper at deer camp......

Apparently Cabela's sells lightsabers...

The knife came out of the box incredibly sharp. The balance and weight of the knife are perfect. Beautiful rosewood handle, and usable sheath. This knife is going with me on all my hunts.
