The skinning knife was designed to remove the skin or hide from large animals. The skinning knife was made with a curved tip to avoid slicing meat or piercing the hide. Almost all skinning knives have long thin blades that bend in order to remove the hide of an animal. Most butchers and hunters use the skinner knife to carve up their meat to reduce damaging the muscle.
