The name Market Skinner was the professional name given to the men whose job it was to skin, quarter and preserve the meat being supplied to the large commercial consumers such as the Railroads, cities up and down America’s river ways and across the territories and states of the young American Union.

Professional Hunters called Market Hunters, would supply game to them often numbering in the hundreds or even thousands of animals that needed processing on a weekly basis.

Their job required the tools of both professional skinners and butchers plying their trade from sun up to sun down across the western states as the fledgling nation moved ever westward into new un-hunted territory.

Their main tool above all others was their knife, a knife that could do all the things needed to complete their job, quickly, cleanly and efficiently. I am lucky to have several of those “early” knives in my collection.

The Emerson market Skinner is a modern version of the knives used by those professional game butchers so many years ago. To do their job, the knife had to be strong, tough, easily sharpened and ergonomically designed for hours of laborious chores. The Emerson Market Skinner fulfills all of those roles and more in a design (if they had used folders in those days) that any of those men would have wanted.

For the modern Hunter, from the biggest game down to the smallest quarry, this Emerson hunting knife is one you could confidently use anywhere your hunt takes place.

I’ve been a hunter all my life so I know what a good hunting knife should do. Better yet, I know that those Market Skinners knew way more than me about what their knife should do. And that’s what I used as my model. See for yourself.

About the Maker

Emerson Knives
Emerson Knives

Ernest Emerson started making custom knives in his garage in 1979. He rapidly rose to prominence as a knife maker due in equal parts to his expertise as a craftsman, (tool and die maker), his artists eye for design, and his practical experience as one of the world’s most sought-after and respected hand-to-hand combat instructors. Emerson’s work has been featured and exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Smithsonian Museum. There are only a handful of living artists who can make that claim. As an instructor in hand-to-hand combat and edged weapon skills, Mr. Emerson has taught the most elite warriors on earth, from the US Navy SEALs to the Guards of Parliament in London and everywhere in between. He is the author of scores of articles, books, and videos regarding tactics, training and combat. As one of the most sought after instructors in the world he is in high demand for seminars and lectures to civilian, military and law enforcement agencies. He is an inducted member of The Martial Arts Hall of Fame, along with such venerable names as Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris. In fact he is the only knife maker known who also owns and operates his own training facility, the world-class “Black Shamrock Combat Academy Gym” in Los Angeles, California.
