Browning Sportsman Series knife model 40181
In 1968, Browning introduced a line of cutlery in the form of 3 fixed-blade hunting knives and a folding knife designed by Custom Knifemaker Gil Hibben. These initial knives were created by Ichiro Hattori in Seki, Japan. Later the selection of knives was expanded and were produced in the USA, Japan and Germany and featured a beautiful handmade basketweave leather sheath made in Mexico.
The Browning Sportsman Series Model 40181 is called a Trailing Point Knife and is 8" OAL with a 4" blade. The blade was made of 440c Stainless Steel, and the wood handle is Staminawood. Knife was made by Browning in the USA.
This knife was New Old Stock, in box with Browning pamphlet, but the blade suffered some corrosion. Otherwise, the blade and sheath are in great shape. Carry or collect, judge from photos. This is a classic, well-designed hunting and skinning knife.
