Tame the outdoors with this Backwoods Gear Gift Set.
Gut Hook Knife
This beast of a blade is designed for hunting and skinning, with a full-tang construction and sturdy gut-hook tip. The curved edge provides optimal leverage for piercing through hide without puncturing anything underneath, while the razor-sharp gut hook is designed to cut through tissues and tendons in a straight, even line — essential if you’re prepping a pelt.
And if hunting’s not your thing, it’s still a useful tool to have in your kit. It’s great for gardening, fishing, general camp chores, and anything else you’d use a larger, outdoor knife for.
It’s made using 15n20 stainless steel, fastened to an African Tali wood handle using old-school brass pins for a tried-and-true sense of balance that just feels right in the hand.

To keep your outdoor goods safe and organized, toss ‘em in this field case from Sheffield. It’s sturdy enough to protect ammunition, hunting and fishing gear, electronics, tools and pretty much anything else, with a water-resistant compression lid and beefy construction. It was designed with security in mind, too: you can fix locks to it in three different spots if you need to be extra careful.
