The Emerson Appalachian with a graceful up swept trailing point for delicate areas, enough belly for the hard work, and the Emerson ergonomic handle, this knife provides the perfect hunter's package.
The Appalachian is a design I developed for those of you who asked, “When is Emerson ever going to build a hunter?” Well, I always regarded all of my knives as hunting knives. They were just intended for another kind of animal. Actually there are a number of Emerson designs that work very well in the role of a conventional hunting knife. In fact, the world's largest lion was skinned with an Emerson Commander. But, I never have designed a knife that was for game and hunting as its first and primary purpose, Until Now.
The Emerson Appalachian is just that knife. With a graceful upswept trailing point for delicate areas, enough belly for the hard work, and the Emerson ergonomic handle, this knife provides the perfect hunter's package. Growing up in the deep woods of Northern Wisconsin, I know hunting as well as I know anything and this is a knife I wish I'd had in those woods when I took my first deer at 12 years of age. “Son, you shot it. You dress it” were the words I remember my Dad saying to me as I placed my Winchester Lever Action 30-30 carbine against a nearby tree. I wish I'd had an Appalachian back then. I just might have done a better job of skinning that first deer, maybe.
