Big isn’t always better
The Outfitter’s little brother might be smaller in stature but bigger isn’t always better. Small and lightweight, the Bird and Trout excels where space is limited and exacting accuracy is a necessity.
Precision design, field-tested
The leaf-like blade shape gives the knife an unrivaled point, making it easy to puncture the toughest of skin with surgical precision. The Bird and Trout really outclasses the field when skinning smaller animals (rabbit, muskrats, beaver) and caping big game heads due to the 2.64” blade length. Those with larger hands might often scoff at the idea of carrying a smaller knife but the lanyard hole can be outfitted with a paracord braid to extend the grip. Design and ergonomics are always at the forefront of our designers’ minds when developing a knife from the ground up. Countless hours are spent fine-tuning and reworking the design until it has the desired natural feel in the hand. In addition to our designers’ efforts, our knives are then field-tested by Jackson Hole’s finest anglers, hunters, and trappers to ensure they meet our highest production and in-the-field standards. The lightly curved and tapered handle gives an exceptional grip when the knife is upside down gutting a trout or right side up breasting out a grouse.

Locally made with American steel
Like all of our knives, the steel is the foundation, and S35VN “Powder Metal” is the highest performing steel on the market. This high carbon, alloyed steel has it all: elite sharpness, toughness, edge-holding, stain resistance, and sharpenability. The included full-grain leather belt sheath ensures it’s easily accessible and protected at all times. We offer the Bird & Trout in bombproof G-10 or timeless Ironwood handles, sacrificing neither functionality nor durability.
