The ProSkinner

Skinning Knife, ProSkinner Knife, Lucas Forge, Custom Hunting Knives from Lucas Forge

The ProSkinner, a Lucas Forge original model, was designed by a trapper and hunter extraordinaire and each knife is custom built in Alabama by Lucas.

  • The ProSkinner is approximately 7 5/8 inches overall. Blade is approximately 3 1/2 inches. The thin, well-shaped blade makes this knife highly suitable as a skinning knife, but it’s also ideal for processing small game birds and fish.
  • This model features a high-quality, O-1 carbon tool steel blade, 3/32-inch in width as the standard.
  • The blade can feature 1) a sweet aged finish – the standard, 2) a polished satin-finish that should age and take on a darker patina with proper care, or 3) a hammer-forged finish! Your choice!
  • The standard hardware is a set of two brass pins, but can be upgraded to deluxe 3/16″ mosaic pins.
  • You choose the handle! There are many to choose from, but the best handle choices reflect the type of work the model is designed for. Materials such as laminates, micarta, whitetail and stag antler help the handle resist water and grime. The example shown at the head of this page has a magnificent stag handle!
  • Each knife comes with its own handcrafted vertical-carry leather belt sheath.

The ProSkinner model’s base price is $160.
