It's an Old Timer boot knife with the sawcut handle, I work it on a steel about a half dozen times after every skinning session and it stays sharp.

Nice

Well done video. Thanks.
With my arthritis, I've gone to using bent nail hung from a tree at head height instead of the step on tail method. I start the same, splitting the tail and cutting down the thighs, then just slip the skin into the V of the nail and pull down.

yes sir they've got the clamps i was gonna try to make one before i spent $40 on one i just was wondering if they were worth the trouble. I've tried the way in the video by stepping on the tail but my grandfather was looking for something to keep him from bending over.

PTB check my post above. It works great for me. No bending over, both hands working to do the pulling g. All you need is a place to tie off the cord. I can email p pics if you need them.
