The best knives for the treatment of ungulate husk
The perfect model for any type of evisceration knife. The hunters are divided into two "parties", as to the choice of the ideal knife to treat the remains of ungulates. Who prefers the fixed blade and who the folding. In any case, investing in quality on the knife means being able to work on the rake by forcing without failing safely and without having to sharpen the blades too often. On this page we show the best that the industrial production of knives makes available to the most demanding hunters, taking the example or the best examples in the world of fixed blade and three-blade folding for the specific use of the treatment of the ungulate husk. The fixed blade with good steel, handling, safety and beauty there are thousands, industrial or artisanal. Their value lies in their robustness, everything is fixed and nothing can come loose. Coltellerie Maserin soon began delivering what is probably its most technically studied and advanced hunting knife for ungulates.
“Croz” was created in collaboration with an exceptional designer, the well-known journalist and hunting expert in the Trentino mountains Ettore Zanon, with the aim of building the best possible fixed blade for the evisceration of ungulates. Croz is the rock, in the Trentino dialect, the rock where the mountain hunters confront the chamois, the one they lean on to shoot; and Croz gives the name to this extraordinary knife, because Ettore Zanon, its great inspirer, wanted a term that recalled hunting in his mountains of the Val di Rabbi, and he put all his experience as an ungulate hunter at the service of his brothers Maserin, who synthesized it into a truly excellent knife.
It is a simple and light fixed blade of 23 centimeters, of which 11 of blade (4 mm thick), in N690 steel, 60 HRC, one of the best in the world, with high carbon content and a hardness that allows it to operate well without losing the thread. The serration in the part near the handle is intended to facilitate the work on the bone parts. The handle is in three different versions, in very strong G10 resin for the black and orange high visibility versions, as well as robust micarta for the green model. For ergonomics, the cheeks are tapped in order to make it more difficult to slide during the work phases. Maximum safety, also guaranteed by the generous guard and the knurling on the upper part of the blade, elements thanks to which it will be extremely difficult to lose your grip. A great finesse element and utility, which significantly differentiates this knife, is the inclusion in the back of a accia ino to sharpen the tool, invisible when it is inserted.

The presence of Niobium among the components gives it the unique characteristic of guaranteeing at the same time the very high resistance of the blade edge and the docility in letting itself be sharpened.The blade is equipped with a hook for skinning and is very safe thanks to the raised and knurled part of the back towards the handle. The “Rupicapra” logo is engraved on the blade. The handle is available in precious olive wood or in non-slip G10 resin, in high visibility green or black to recall the horn of the suede, whose growth rings are echoed in the unique design of the cheeks.
