Compact Hunting Knife
The Perfect Tool for Gutting and Skinning. A collaboration between Glenn Klecker and David Kurt, a lifelong hunter and custom knife maker. This lightweight drop point, all around hunting knife is simple to pack but designed to get the big jobs done. The G-10 handle and thumb jimping are comfortable and have easy to grip finger notches that keep it in place, even when the cutting is wet and slippery. A full-size removable gut hook and bottle opener are concealed in the handle, perfect for gutting, skinning and popping the top off of a cold one. From skinning to quartering, the 3.97-inch fine edge blade is designed for smooth engagement and firm cutting.

I have been looking for a good quality hunting knife for a while now and just happened to be window shopping on a visit to Silverton Oregon, when I spotted the Abiqua Hunter in the window display.
Within seconds, I was treated to an impromptu demonstration (by one of the friendly staff who had spotted me looking in) of the innovative, removable back-strap design that separates from the knife and becomes a skinning tool and bottle opener (all while I stood watching from the sidewalk).
Needless to say, I went into the store for a closer look. In hand, the knife feels as good as it looks and is beautifully crafted with an attention to ergonomics and design that really won me over instantly. G10 handle that fits the hand like a glove, ample gimping and an eye-catching grind on the drop-point blade. I instantly made up my mind... SOLD!
The Kydex sheath is molded perfectly and has a nice thumb actuated feature to remove the knife. Solid retention when sheathed.
The removable skinner tool is not gimmicky either. It is crafted with the same high quality ergonomics as the rest of the knife and (this is the big plus for me) means that I don't sacrifice blade edge length to accommodate the skinner.
A thoughtful design that just works.
Thanks to all the staff at Klecker, who were friendly, attentive and extremely helpful. They showed a real pride in their products and rightly so.
I will be back to purchase the axe/multi-tool in the very near future!

This knife came very quick. Received it sooner than expected. The knife is very well made and I expect it to stand up to years of extreme use.
