What is a Jaeger? For starters, it's the German word for hunter, but the knife was actually named after the hawk-like bird named Jaeger that nests near the Alaska hunting and fishing lodge and is incredibly sleek and streamlined - just like our knife. This is possibly the most beautiful and sleekest knife we have ever made. Designed as a premier boning and caping knife, this is lightweight and easy to carry but incredibly versatile and strong, with a 0.118" thick blade. The non-slip ridges on the back of the blade will give you a comfortable platform on which to place either your forefinger or thumb. Also, the individual finger grooves and deep front choil provide a comfortable and positive grip. The sheath is made from 100% American split grain cowhide, vegetable tanned then oiled. It hangs at a 45-degree angle for added comfort.
Special Features: Finger grooves on top of the blade provide a positive non-slip surface Full tang, double-riveted handle with lanyard gives knife extra strength.

Letter From The President:
A person's choice of outdoor gear, especially that of hunters and fishermen, is a source of personal pride and satisfaction. That doesn't mean you must have the most expensive gun, rod, knife, boots, or whatever, but the gun should be clean, well maintained, and accurate. Your knife should shave, and hopefully, the boots will be well broken in before tackling a major extended hunt. As outfitters in Alaska, we have guided hunters and fishermen into the Alaskan bush for years. One fact is - and has always been - each man's gear is going to play a major role in determining his success, comfort, and enjoyment.
At Knives of Alaska, we understand what it means to rely on your gear. We've never lost sight of the fact that the knife of a dedicated hunter, fisherman, or outdoorsman has two important aspects. First, and most important, it is a precision tool that must perform the task at hand efficiently, safely, and reliably time after time, year after year. Second, a man's knife is an investment and one of his personal objects of pride. It is a measuring stick among his peers.
We make award-winning outdoorsman knives that are used and respected by some of the best professional guides and outfitters, hunters, and other outdoorsmen in Alaska, and across the globe. To say that our knives are field-tested is an understatement. We carry them across Southeast Alaska's glacier fields, through swamps, across the tundra, and in the mountains, using them in all manner of chores. If something doesn't work, it gets corrected or eliminated in a hurry!
All of our knives, from our new line of folders to our award-winning cleavers, our hatchets, combination sets, and fixed blade hunters, are quality outdoor cutlery for the self-reliant outdoorsman who demands the very best in his gear. It doesn't matter if you're hunting whitetails in a local woodlot or after a big Alaskan brown bear, your gear will still be one of the things that set you apart and make the hunt more enjoyable. Our promise to you is that our lifetime guaranteed knives are made to exacting quality standards that will ensure satisfaction and pride of ownership. They work for us in the harsh field conditions of bush Alaska-and they will work for you, time after time, year after year-wherever you hunt or fish.
Thank you for your confidence in our products. Enjoy the great outdoors and be sure to take a youngster hunting and fishing with you.
President and Owner
