Bill Campbell started this online knife gallery as chief knife maker for Black Elk Outdoors.
As you will see, Bill is an artist and very creative. Not only does he make the knives but also the leather work. He is also a sculptor and painter.
Drop point knives, clip point knives, hollow point knives, bowie knives, fillet knives, folding
knives, we make them all.
Most of our knives are made with 440C stainless steel blades. They are cryogenically treated, which means that they have been frozen down to -305 degrees below zero for just under four hours. The edge holding properties are thus greatly enhanced!
It is not unusual for hunters and guides to tell us that they have skinned and butchered up to five elk without having to sharpen their cryogenically treated knife. How about that?!
Bill Campbell has been involved in Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, past Ducks Unlimited Habitat Chairman and spokesman on wildlife issues pertaining mostly to wolves.
He has been a rancher and breeder of thoroughbred and performance horses and remains active in his community.
Shipping and Handling:
Bill doesn't like it when people say "of course you have to add shipping and handling". So, from us, you don't: It's free! When you buy from him he says, "why should I nickel and dime you for shipping? It's my way of saying thanks for your business, and I've been doing that since 2001".
A hunting knife/ skinning knife as good as you can get!
This is the notorious damascus blade. Also referred to as pattern welded steel. This is top of the line as far as blades go. The process for making the steel dates back before Christ in the middle east.
It is very labor intensive to make the steel, that is why it is so much more expensive. Oh, but it is so beautiful. This steel is so dense it will hold an edge forever with our cryo treat-
Manzanita wood with four coats hand rubbed linseed oil. It is elegant!
The knife style is referred to as a "clip point".
Koyote 2 $ 395.00

Here is a heads up! Your tip of the day.
If you want to keep your knife blade sharp (and I know you do), when you are skinning your BIG game, skin it from the underside. If you skin it across the hair or fur, it is the fastest way to dull your knife. DON'T do it.
You'll be a happier hunter at the end of your hunt. Bill
