Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Verified Buyer Reviewed by D. from Southest USA on Wednesday, December 24, 2014Previous review was five stars...it is really hard to beat the quality from the Maniago craftsmen in general and the quality / value evidenced in this Elite Skinner from Remington in particular. Upon receiving the second knife there were no real issues, only a slight blemish in the superb holster/sheath's finish...and I do mean VERY slight. This was a gift to my brother for Christmas and it really was a winner; he loves the design, fit, and finish of both the knife and its wet formed sheath. This is surely one of the best knife values from STP at present. When Remington chose the LionSteel / MAX Design folks to assume the building of their previously USA made knives, it was a step up (and the USA made knives had been pretty nice). Final notes: The pivot fasteners are best adjusted with a simple but special tool that is NOT included with the knife; an alternative would be to fabricate one (a small strip of 1/16" - 1/8" aluminum or mild steel would work just fine) or to carefully use a 'circlip' tool with properly sized tips. This fastener is quite common in use by the various Italian knife makers in this region. When I find one I will post that info here on STP. I have not asked Remington yet but will do so. [BTW: Both Skinners arrived without the need for any adjustment - quality control is more than sufficient by this builder and clearly exemplifies Maniago pride.] The LionSteel company makes this same knife with either all Cocobolo OR all Olive wood scales that sell for ~seventyfive dollars (no sheath). Remington's current version uses Aluminum rather than G-10 having the same Olive wood inserts.The G-10 workmanship is among the best out there and if you intend to skin a creature with your Skinner this may be the most practical choice of them all the incarnations. Get one of these before this discontinued G-10 / Olive wood scale version can still be had (for a song from STP). It would be fun to craft one's own custom scale set from an exotic wood species (or ?); the polished skeletonized liners are stout enough to support whatever material used. LAST WORD: There are not many folders out there that behave just like a fixed blade when locked or that may be sheathed either folded or locked. Also, there is no clip on the handle....only on the sheath. The maximum thickness scale to scale is ~9/16" and the finish is quite smooth so this brute actually pockets pretty well by my estimation.
Reviewed by CZ in HP from High Point, NC on Tuesday, December 23, 2014This was an AMAZING deal on a fantastic skinning knife. The quality FAR exceeded my expectations. I purchased this as a gift for my brother, but I'll be on the lookout for one for myself as soon as I can find them again.
Small, compact and easy to carry in a BEAUTIFUL leather case. The blade is dangerously sharp (as it should be) and the fit and finish are impressive. For those that have skinned with a sub-par blade, you know that value of a good one when you use it. This is a good one...
Verified Buyer Reviewed by D. from Southeast US on Monday, September 8, 2014Expected to receive a high grade Italian Remington and that expectation was surpassed. This is a mid weight+ bruiser of a skinner that has been well conceived and executed in every detail. All materials are first rate and build/fit/finish is superb. The sheath is a real beauty as well having a detailed wet formed fit and using premium leather (deep antiqued brown). It has dual sheathing function with the knife being inserted either opened or closed. The stainless belt clip can be left as is for quick on/off belt attachment or can be changed to an absolute belt feed attachment by simply adding two rivets to the clip tip. This fine leather sheath misses no detail and would require a number of hours at the bench by a skilled maker to craft. The blade lock must be activated when either opening or closing this folder. Even after a judicious application of TufGlide to the pivot and spring surfaces the blade swing action remains stout and requires purposeful two handed technique (not a quick deployment design unless carried open in the sheath); this locking system is very solid and about as good as it gets, The scales are G-10 riveted (two) to stainless liners and surround detachable (two Torx) mildly figured olive wood inserts. The lanyard opening peeks out from the handle butt. Blade steel (full flat grind) and sharpness out of the box are both first rate. The non clip handle and finger grooved olive wood yield a great fit to the hand yet sleek profile for pocket carry. Sierra Trading Post sent a first quality example (box also as new) professionally padded and packaged at a more than fair coupon price point. The enclosed literature provides a brief summary of knife building in Maniago (since before 1380) identifying state of the art production methods of the present day. This model is from Remington's Premier line, guaranteed for life (materials and workmanship), and includes a mail in registration form usable by the buyer or gifted first owner when mailed to Remington in North Carolina. This knife is both a sleeper and a keeper.
