When we designed the Stonewall skinner my goal was to create a knife that could do any possible task in the field that a hunter may encounter.  After designing a couple of knives that were intended for the hunters counting ounces we wanted to create a blade that could do it all.  

The Stonewall has a larger belly in the blade making it perfect for skinning out animals or cutting meat.  The added length of this blade makes it possible to baton it through wood if needed.  The blade is stout enough to put up to nearly any abuse you can put it through.  At .135 thick at the spine, this 52100 blade is stronger than any task will be.  At just .015 thick at the edge, this knife will still cut like a laser but still has enough steel behind the edge to chop wood for hunting camp. The G-10 handle scales are equally as tough as the blade.  G-10 is notorious for being strong, durable, and stable.  No natural handle material can compare to its toughness.


Each Montana Knife Company™ Stonewall Blackfoot Skinner comes with a Kydex sheath with a quick attach belt look.  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 Montana Knife Company™ Stonewall Blackfoot 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.



The Montana Knife Company™ Stonewall Blackfoot Skinner got its name from the region that our founder Master Bladesmith Josh Smith grew up in.  The Stonewall Mountain and Blackfoot river valley in Lincoln Montana are on the edge of the Bob Marshall and Scapegoat wilderness. Josh grew up hunting and fishing in this area and felt it was fitting to name this blade after this incredible place.

1st MKC purchase Stonewall knife

This knife is incredible! Very sharp, sturdy, built with excellent craftsmanship and comes with an awesome case that provides many carrying options. Impressed with the hard work put into this knife!

Perfection if American craftsmanship.

This is the perfection of American craftsmanship. You want to use this to skin a deer on your latest hunt? It will happen with ease. You like to hike and want a bit of a beefier blade by your side. Great, this is the one for you. You just want to open Amazon packages and cut up boxes for recycling. Perfect, this will blast through any task. In my opinion this is the perfect all around knife. It looks great, has one of the sharpest edges out of box I’ve ever felt, it’s weight is weight is deceiving and I expected it to be extremely heavy, it’s not. It’s light as can be an will make an excellent addition to any hiking pack. Mark my words, this is the last fixed blade I will ever buy.


Super sharp and strong. Definitely the best hunting knife I’ve ever held and can’t wait to try it out this season.

Josh and the team built a quality knife. Looking forward to field us and passing it down the next generation (eventually).

Top Notch!

Been able to pick up a few tees and knives from MKC. Super sharp and functional all the way around. Quality > quantity!
