One of Russ Kommer's favorite custom knife/sheath packages is the 2-Shot™. He has used it daily in the field as a hunting guide in Alaska and around the world. Russ says, "I've always preferred a smaller semi-skinner, even for the biggest of game. You just use the hump near the end of the blade to locate your index finger. And the blade is short enough that you can work inside the animal and feel where you are at all times."
The skinner has a full-tang fixed blade of 12C27 Sandvik stainless steel with stainless steel bolsters, both mirror polished for ease of cleaning. Hand-finished orange G10 handles are fitted with stainless steel pins. Blade length is 3.15".
Russ explains the sheath; "For me, a horizontal sheath makes getting around easier. It doesn't interfere with your rifle or back pack waist strap, and it's not always banging the bush plane, pickup, or fouling the pack horse guide rope. I've been making two-shell custom sheaths for years. I never carry a box of shells out of camp . . . usually just a magazine and the two cartridges in my sheath. They won't rattle around, and the two pockets will handle ammunition from .243 up to .338. No matter what happens, you'll always have those two shells to get you home."
The sheath is convertible for left or right carry.
I just purchased the two shot and I am very happy with the quality of the knife and the sheath I am concerned about the strap that connects the shell holder to the sheath and to your belt it's sewn together end to end I see this as a weak point I've coated the threads in bow string wax which will help but I would have liked to see a more sturdy connection here. Qver all still happy with this knife sheath combo.

As soon as I saw this knife I knew I had to have it. Can not wait for the upcoming hunting season to really see how well it performs on large game.

Sent one of these to my Marine son in California. He loved it and said it would come in handy when he's hunting... Mark

LOVE the horizontal carry The knife is very sharp and holds it's edge. I skinned a fox with it first and it felt like I was using a scalpel

Great Knife. I wasn't sure I'd like the horizontal design but after a 2 weeks of hunting I'm sold.
High quality knife...my new favorite.

Great design on this knife, very usable blade and handle design, the leather sheath with a 2 cartridge holder is a great idea. Very well crafted, good attention to detail, and good materials, cant wait to take it to the mountains.
