The Jaeger is possibly the most beautiful and sleekest knife Knives of Alaska has ever made. Designed as a premier boning and caping knife, this is lightweight and easy to carry, but incredibly versatile and strong, with a 0.118" thick blade. The non-slip ridges on the back of the blade will give you a comfortable platform on which to place either your forefinger or thumb. Also, the individual finger grooves and deep front coil provide a comfortable and positive grip. The sheath is made from 100% American split grain cowhide, vegetable tanned then oiled. It hangs at a 45 degree angle for added comfort.
