Technically, a gut hook is more of a blade feature as included on a blade, than a blade shape itself. Gut-Hooks usually appears as a small, sharpened hook-like curve that interrupts the spine as it slopes toward the point. These have one main use: field dressing wild game. The design of the hook allows hunters to cut through an animal’s skin without piercing or damaging what lies under it. Honey Badger’s specific gut-hook design features exactly the same cutting edge profile as the drop point Flipper model, but with an added gut-hook for the field dressing of game.
