Out of a collaboration between accomplished Outdoorsman and NRA Firearms Instructor Jim McClain, Design Professional Leah Price, and ABS Bladesmith Vincent Price, comes the birth of The Bandit Skinner.
Looking for a light but strong, sharp yet durable, functional yet attractive blade, Mr. McClain sought out friend and Bladesmith Vincent Price to forge the design he had in mind. With the help of design professional Leah Price, the plans were drawn out and the irons were thrown into the fire. "It took me several tries to get it just the way I wanted it but when I had it I knew it immediately and was positive Jim would love it." said Vince Price.
The original Bandit Skinner was forged from 1095 steel with a 1" thumb through grip, Himalayan Rams Horn handle with a Red G10 Liner, and Nickel Stainless Pins with a Lanyard Hole. The addition of Jim's trademarked personal Bandit Logo, Electro Chemically Etched on the blade, sets the original blade apart.
We are proud to offer custom orders of The Bandit Skinner with varying steel or wood choices for handle material. 10% of the profit of each knife sold will go to a charity that will be named during the next meeting where it will be chosen.
