THE MONTANA KNIFE COMPANY™ - BEARTOOTH PRO-SKINNER BLADE
DESIGNED IN THE FIELD
The Beartooth Blade was designed and tested in conjunction with professional Alaskan bear guide Cole Kramer. This knife is purpose-built as a professional-grade knife. Its primary design is for fleshing hides. The sweeping design allows the user to take long sweeping strokes providing as much working edge as possible with little interference of a pointy tip. Large hides can take a lot of work and a large well-designed knife can help cut that work down considerably. This blade is as thin as many pocket knives making it a knife that can be used in a repetitive motion for hours while also being incredibly easy to sharpen. Don’t let the thin blade fool you. In tests, this knife flexed 90 degrees before returning back to near straight.
The Montana Knife Company™ Beartooth Pro Skinner has three hollows cuts into the handle to decrease weight and provide a place for the epoxy to bond the steel and handle material. Screws and high-strength lock tight hold the handle scales in place tightly.
Each Montana Knife Company™ Beartooth Blackfoot Skinner comes with a Kydex sheath with a quick attach belt loop. This belt loop can be put on your belt without removing or unclasping the belt. The knife can also be carried horizontally or vertically by simply removing two screws, adjusting the clip, and reapplying the screws.
THE BEARTOOTH PRO SKINNING BLADE
The Montana Knife Company Beartooth Mountains in Montana are as rugged as it gets. Cole Kramer hunts the extreme conditions of Alaska with the largest bears on the planet. It only seemed fitting to call this rugged purpose build knife “The Beartooth."

This is the knife that most intrigued me from the MKC lineup. Its size is perfect for work on harvested animals and it remains sharp longer than most others waiting in the shop to be used. Good weight to it and blade shape means it takes less time to do the job. I gotta practice with the sharpening but that has nothing to do with the knife. Well thought through piece and will be used for years.
The shape of this blade is incredible. As it’s intended purpose- skinning big game animals, I haven’t been able to use yet.. but Elk season opens Saturday. As of now, I’ve been using it in the kitchen to cut my steaks. Sharp, durable, and worth every penny. Excited to nab one before this hunting season kicks off and will have it for years to come! Thank you MKC Crew!! Love your work.
This is my 3rd MKC knife. It is surprising light in the hand. Sharp and ready to go. Can’t wait to start cutting!
Best blade I have ever held in my hands. Such great detail went into the blade. Can’t wait to buy my next MKC blade.
