Description
CR2860: Brow Tine Hunter
Columbia River

Here is another high-value tool for the serious outdoorsman, inspired by knifemaker and hunting and fishing guide Russ Kommer.

Russ Kommer keeps keeps coming up with ideas for high-value knives and tools that every hunter needs. We call this growing group of products The Kommer Collection. It includes a high-hollow ground skinner, a utility hunting knife and a unique chisel/sharpener.

Our Brow Tine Hunter is a traditional drop point hunter with stag handle. The blade is high-carbon 9Cr18 stainless steel with a mirror finish. There is a pinned stainless steel bolster and the hand-finished stag handles are held by mosaic pins. A tooled leather sheath completes the package, which is perfect for every outdoorsman who appreciates old-style design and quality.

Russ designed our P.T.S. (Pelvic Tool/Sharpener) because splitting the pelvic bone when dressing larger animals such as White Tail Deer and Alaskan Moose is difficult with a conventional blade, and may cause damage to the knife as well.

The P.T.S. is a high-carbon steel wedge with a chisel edge which will neatly split the cartilage at the pelvic bone seam aided by the tap of a nearby rock. There is no need to pack a hatchet.

In addition, we have coated the P.T.S. with a No. 400 diamond grit, creating a useful field sharpener. Use the flat side to touch up hunting knives. The back side has two grooves designed to sharpen fishhooks and arrow broadheads. The tapered, rounded edges are just right to sharpen serrated knife edges, including conventional serrations and our exclusive patented* Veff™ Serrations.

And in typical CRKT style, we have included a braided leather thong for grip and a handy carry pouch with the P.T.S.

Whether climbing up a ridge, sitting in a duck blind, or casting down a riffle, Russ is always thinking. And he thought you might like these tools.

About the Knife Designer

Russ Kommer of Fargo, North Dakota, has been a commercial hunting guide since 1980. He started making knives when one of his hunter clients brought a custom knife and dressed an entire moose without sharpening it. He began working with noted Alaskan knifemaker John Shore, who took Russ into his shop and showed him how to grind. He began making his own line of knives in 1997, and his custom catalog shows a range of fixed blade knives, including Bowie and Camp Knives, Fillet Knives, Hunters, Fighters and Boot Knives, all available with a variety of exotic handles and with engraving. He is the designer of the CRKT Bear Claw, Big Eddy, hunting knives including our Pro and Signature Hunters, 30-30, and Surf ’N Turf, plus the Kommer Fulcrum and I.F.B. He says, “I set out to make a quality knife that would perform and be comfortable to handle. I have found knifemaking to be my calling, and would like to thank all the people who have helped me along the way!”

A great carry knife!
I purchased one of the earliest copies so maybe quality control was a bit off. The stag slabs on my model were slightly off on fit to the frame, and the knife was not sharp. I worried about the Chinese steel not taking a good edge but the knife sharpened up nicely and holds its edge for a surprisingly long time! The mirror finish is very attractive but scratches easily. I know I sound negative, but truth be told this is an excellent knife for hunter or hiker. It's light, sharpens up nicely and holds a good edge. The sheath is attractive and durable.
