Please read our Terms below for details. This fine and rare beef skinning knife was made by F. Dick in Esslingen, Germany and is simply one of the finest vintage Green River-style skinning knives you'll ever come across by ANY maker. It's a VERY stiff knife with zero flex and any hunter would be well-served carrying it into the field at his or her side. It comes in a nice, handy size (10.75" long w/6" blade), full of the kind of hand-forged quality that once defined German knives as the best in the world.Dick knives, it's full of the kind of expensive, labor-intensive quality that earned them a world-class reputation for quality. Unlike today's mass-produced, hot-drop forged stainless steel blades i. By machine, it enjoys a fully hand-forged carbon steel blade, made from superior virgin steel. As such, it is quite superior to that made today by any but the most demanding custom cutlers. It is very comfortable in the hand and allows a comfort and control that eludes most knives--perfect for making the difficult strokes necessary to cleanly skin fallen game or livestock in the field. A collector's piece though it may be, it would be an utter shame not to use it. It will hold a razor's edge, with relatively easy honing and it is now RAZOR sharp, having been professionally edged for this sale.
We urge the utmost in caution or a careless user may find himself in the E. If you've never used a carbon steel knife before, you're in for a treat. Experienced butchers, chefs, and hunters know that only a true carbon steel blade can consistently attain the razor-sharp edge that makes using it a true pleasure you must wipe the knife after every use to avoid stains and rusting, but will be richly rewarded with superior performance! This knife is perfectly balanced and will make you wonder why you suffered for all these years without one.
When you hold a knife like this it feels like an extension of your hand, not like a weight you're simply holding. As you can see in the photos, it's beautifully preserved with a blade that's full and sharp; ebony handle is tight, completely free of cracks or any other problems. Whether you are a professional or amateur, you'll instantly come to love this magnificent vintage knife as one of your very favorites. It's designed for the primary purpose of dressing and skinning a carcass, either in the field or in the meat locker, but it's also a SUPERB trimmer of meats and boning knife, when precision and tight quarters are the order of the day. Many chefs treasure this design and size as their primary utility knife, cutting everything from tough packaging or twin to sinew and tougher root vegetables, to spare their finer chef knives the harsh conditions.
Will make an exceptionally surprising gift for the discriminating chef or hunter on your list. A WORD ABOUT MAINTENANCE: Never use a dishwasher.Wash the knife by hand and wipe clean immediately thereafter. Wipe the knife clean when using it on wet or acidic foods. It WILL rust if not maintained properly. I apply a very thin coat of non-toxic mineral oil to blade and wooden handles periodically, to seal them from ambient moisture in the atmosphere (olive or corn oil will suffice).
