Vintage Type Catfish / Beef & Pork Rib / Turtle Skinner / Great gift for the fishing person in your family

My Grandfather (Vern Taylor) used to make this style skinner years ago and sold them at stores in the Peoria, Illinois area and at Bait Shops from Peoria to Havana, Il.

If you BBQ ribs for your family or in competition I am told that these are an excellent choice for removing the membrane (skin) from the backside of Pork & Beef Ribs to help in the BBQ seasoning process.

You can view a video of the Skinners that gives you a 360 degree view. The video is on YouTube, click the link to view it. It is a two minute video.

The material (Carbon steel) is the exact grade of steel that my Grandfather used and the handles are dipped in the highest quality tool handle dip that is available on the market today. The handles are triple dipped for comfort. These are a genuine HI-Quality tool, NOT stamped out on a machine but Hand Made.

100% Made IN THE U.S.A. by a U.S.A Veteran.
