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.

Best hunting knives out there

Have the Speedgoat and the Stonewall skinner I bought for my son who is heading to guiding school this Summer. Can’t say enough about the sheer quality of craftsmanship on these blades. You guys are the best! American made at its best!

Excellent Shipping, packaging, very sharp, quality. Very happy with the knife. Only concern is now I want another model and do I really need one

Outstanding Craftsmanship!!

I’m a bit of a knife fanatic and always looking for a quality handmade blade. This knife checks every every box. First thing I noticed upon receiving the blade was the packaging. The box is custom with official MKC logo. The blade itself is wrapped in a basic paper and hand tied with para-cord. The sheath is not just your standard Kydex sheath. It holds the blade secure and gives a nice “click” when sheathing. The blade itself is perfect. First thing I noticed was the weight. For the size and quiality I couldn’t believe how light it was. Fits perfect in the hand. I can’t wait to take it on my first elk hunt this November in Montana. Lastly, I chose the Black and Tan. Looks even better in person. If you want not only a quality knife but made in the USA, get yourself a MKC blade.

Best blade out

This blade has it all and is comfortable in the field, on your pack or in the kitchen. Would recommend to anyone wanting a good all around blade

Great Skinning Knife

Got to try out the knife this last weekend on two 250 lbs. + hogs. Hogs have very tough skin and hair to cut through. The knife performed without any problems on both hogs. Usually I can only us one knife per hog, this was a very good test of the knife. I haven't dressed the blade up yet, I want to see just how much use I can get out of this knife before having to re sharpen it.
