Kershaw Knives Diskin Hunter Gen.#2

I was interested in the racy lines of Diskin Hunter by Kershaw ever since it came out, but the hollow grind of the original version kept me from buying one. Some time back, Kershaw has decided to upgrade the knife with a flat grind and a thinned out spine. The circumference of the long grip is a tad small and I have not been able to use it much outdoors, but it seems (despite being a nice hunting knife, for sure) an interesting utility knife, too, especially for food preparation on hikes and in your camp. It is incredibly agile and light in weight, the only drawback being the too simple smooth leather sheath for right handed people only. An ambidextrous plastic sheath similar to the one used by Benchmade on the Adamas fixed blade would have been perfect. The Diskin Hunter is made in the USA using the excellent stainless 14C28 steel and handle slabs made from relatively smooth G10. Handle it and you will love it.
