CRKT Signature Hunters have proven popular, functional, and affordable designs. Most important, they survived the Kommer field test.
After Russ Kommer makes a new knife, he takes it on the next hunting trip he guides and uses it on the heavy skinning of Alaskan moose, caribou and bear. If it works right, feels right, and holds its edge, Russ has another design in his book. If it doesn’t, he takes it to his workshop and destroys it. Our Signature Hunters started as Kommer customs and survived his field test. That’s good enough for us at Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT).
Named after Alaska mountain ranges, the Signature Hunters are simple classic fixed blades, with a full-tang blade of 1.4116 stainless steel, high hollow ground and mirror polished to minimize staining and corrosion and to give less resistance while skinning.
Each blade has friction grooves on the spine and its deep finger choil, giving grip and control under the slipperiest conditions.
The dark-stained bamboo scales are riveted in place with stainless steel rivets. Each knife has a slot at the butt with a hand-tied leather fob.
The Kuskokwin Signature Skinner is a full-bellied skinner with a gut hook. When you have big animals to dress out, this is the knife to take along.
Each Signature Hunter comes with a fitted leather sheath. Like the finest custom sheaths, they are made from a single piece of 7- to 8-ounce leather. They are tooled and perimeter stitched with burnished edges.
As a guide with years of experience in Alaska, Russ Kommer is a no-nonsense guy who designs simple, functional knives. He uses his knives on every trip he guides, and the faster he can skin and dress the game, the more hunting time his party can get in. It’s that simple. That Kommer knives are also graceful and well balanced is almost incidental.
