Gear 101 | December 14, 2018

Hunters have a lot of tools at their disposal, and second only to their weapon, is a good knife. Have you ever tried field-dressing an elk without one?

The Cabela’s Alaskan Guide Series Fixed Blade is a no-nonsense, trust-worthy tool to help make short work of an elk or any other project around camp.

Made in Idaho by Buck knives, this knife features an out-of-box, razor sharp blade made of S30V steel. This field-tested stainless steel has excellent edge retention and rust resistance.

In addition, a titanium-nitride coating enhances the blade’s corrosion resistance.

Built with real-world application in mind, the knife features a checkered rubber handle and a brass finger guard to keep a firm grip when tackling the messiest jobs. A Cordura nylon sheath protects your investment.

At 8 1/2″-inches long, it’s big enough to tackle any big game and you won’t even notice it on your belt—that is, until you need it.

Weight: 6.3 ounces

MSRP: $99.99
