The Woodsman Pro in a saber grind lends itself very well for hunting. It has a drop point good for piercing and with its small belly it can also do a little skinning. The Woodsman Pro is a great size with the over all length being 8 3/4" it is a larger knife but not too large to carry on your hip for a long period of time. It is comfortable in the hand when in use with a nice finger guard that allows you to choke up on the knife to avoid slipping. The Woodsman Pro like many of their other knives, has a squared off spine that works great as a scraper for a firesteel. This is one of Battle Horses biggest sellers because it is a great all around knife.
