Browning Kodiak FDT 3 Blade 3.25" .125" AUS-8 56-57 Skinner=20 Hide Blade=17 Skinner=3.5um Hide Blade=.25um Top A.5 Hunting, Field Dressing
 
Authors Comments:I've used this knife for over a decade to field dress hundreds of elk and have tinkered with a myriad of angles and finish levels. I finally settled on 20 degrees for the skinner with a moderately toothy finish of 3.5um and for a final bevel of 17 degrees for the hide blade with a polished finish of .25um. I relieved the shoulders on the hide blade down to 13 degrees and the added the micro-bevel. With continued stropping at 15 degrees, the edge is now nicely convex.
