A Real Humdinger

Inspiration can strike in odd places. For knife designer Ken Onion, it was while he was elbow-deep in the belly of an Alaska grizzly bear. The knife he was using was woefully inadequate to the task, and he remembers thinking what he would give for a knife big enough and strong enough to make field dressing such large game more efficient. The result is CRKT’s fixed-blade Humdinger. The 6-inch black-oxide blade made of 65Mn carbon steel is designed for long, sweeping motions, which will help a hunter quickly break down a large animal. The TPU handle provides a firm grip. Utter simplicity, maximum utility. SRP: $89.99. (crkt.com)
