Design Note: A Skinning knife is designed mainly for skinning but can perform the jobs of the clip point and drop point as well.
A skinning knife is a knife used to skin game. Typically a skinning knife has wide, short blade. The edge is strong and does not have much flexibility or spring. Skinning knives are more a hunting tool than a weapon.
