Bought as a gift for my partner and he'd never seen one before but was really impressed with how well it worked and how much easier it made the job
Excellent for two handed use on Fallow and above but far too big for Roe.
Some difficulty using it with severely arthritic hands so smaller version which does not require such a wide grip would be even better.
Bigger and heavier that I expected. I found it best to grip the inside of the fur, not the fur. It’s a two handed job to use it, the handles are too far apart to grip with one hand, this means you can’t pull on the claw and nip the skin with a knife at the same time.two people make it easier to use.
Used it for the first time yesterday on two Roe deer. Delighted! Much easier and faster especially as I am now 67 years old and have a bit of arthritis in my thumb joints. Pleased I bought this.
Very good tool for skinning especially the stags, if I could make one improvement it would be to have the handles closer together when in use the are too far apart, but it's not deal breaker this is very useful tool to have in the larder.
