CRKT® Signature Hunters have proven popular, functional, and

affordable designs. Most important, they survived the Kommer

field test.

After Russ Kommer makes a new knife, he takes it on the next hunting trip he guides and

uses it on the heavy skinning of Alaskan moose, caribou and bear. If it works right, feels

right, and holds its edge, Russ has another design in his book. If it doesn’t, he takes it to

his workshop and destroys it. Our Signature Hunters started as Kommer customs and

survived his field test. That’s good enough for us at Columbia River Knife & Tool®


Named after Alaska mountain ranges, the Signature Hunters are simple classic fixed

blades, with a full-tang blade of 1.4116 stainless steel, high hollow ground and mirror

polished to minimize staining and corrosion and to give less resistance while skinning.

Each blade has friction grooves on the spine and its deep finger choil, giving grip and

control under the slipperiest conditions.

The dark-stained bamboo scales are riveted in place with stainless steel rivets. Each

knife has a slot at the butt with a hand-tied leather fob.

The Kilbuck Signature Hunter is a classic drop point hunter with friction grooves

near the tip for maximum control. This is a favorite of ours as a skinner and camp

general-purpose knife.

The Kuskokwin Signature Skinner is a full-bellied skinner with a gut hook. When

you have big animals to dress out, this is the knife to take along.

Each Signature Hunter comes with a fitted leather sheath. Like the finest custom

sheaths, they are made from a single piece of 7- to 8-ounce leather. They are tooled and

perimeter stitched with burnished edges.

As a guide with years of experience in Alaska, Russ Kommer is a no-nonsense guy who

designs simple, functional knives. He uses his knives on every trip he guides, and the

faster he can skin and dress the game, the more hunting time his party can get in. It’s that

simple. That Kommer knives are also graceful and well balanced is almost incidental.

That we can deliver these knives at only $79.99 complete with leather sheath is a bonus

to every serious hunter.

The Signature hunters are available in retail clampacks as the 2810C and 2820C.
