I’ve deer hunted with my best friend for nearly 25 years in Llano, TX.  His place provides the inspiration for this model, the Llano Legend.  A great hunting and skinning knife, this blade is made from 1 1/4″ stock which allows for a more pronounced dropped tip and butt.  The deep finger groove and bolstered design is nicely balanced and fits the hand just right.  This model of knife almost always features dovetailed bolsters.  Typical dimensions are 7 1/2″ OAL and 3″ blade, but it can be made slightly smaller or larger.  This model starts at $200.
