S&W Survival Series model 6070 Skinner low production number 1221 matches number on box
A sturdy, hard working skinner design with 3.5" drop point blade/ Wessonwood handle is tapered and curved down to the pommel for best skinning action. Finger groove blends into a single quillon guard for sure working grip. Weighs 6 oz and is 7 5/8" overall length. 15,500 produced. While the sheath is untouched and the blade perfect, the finish on the handle has cracked by the S&W Logo. See pictures.
In 1972 Smith and Wesson worked with well known and innovative knife designer Blackie Collins to introduce the company into the knife business. This program was announced in 1975 and seven knives were initially offered. Called the Survival Series they included a Bowie, Outdoorsman, Survival, Skinner a Folding Hunter knife, a Fisherman knife and a Filet knife.
I have a used one of these I carry in a replacement sheath and love the feel and strength of this skinner. It is an awesome design.
