Hello Collectors,

Just arriving today, my new addition to my skinning knife collection. This little Kuno Ritter has detail pouring out of it all over. The upper, lower, scabbard fittings front and back, furrel, and pommel are bleeding with some of the nicest artwork I've seen on these little knives. The lower scabbard fitting on the front has a deer on the side of a mountain, while the upper fitting front has the deers head in an oval frame, surrounded with branches filled with oak leaves and acorns. The lower fitting back is stuffed with oak leaves and acorns and the upper fitting back has a black powder rifle, game bag, hirschfanger with scabbard and powder horn in an oval frame. The furrel has the word "Weidmannsheil" meaning "Good Hunting" and the pommel has more oak leaves and acorns, and on the very top it has what looks to be a sun with rays coming out. This skinner has a nickle plated steel blade with a nice dark makers mark. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Hello C. Wetzel-20609, Kuno Ritter ("HUBERTUS Solingen") is the co writer/finisher (and I think editor) of late CarterĀ“s book. Unfortunately this complete, fully-revised edition is out of print. In this high grade reference book a knife exactly like yours is shown, same trademark, and it is stated that this advertisement is from 1939, so I highly assume that your knife is also from that time. Modern hunting knives of Kuno Ritter do wear the trademark of "HUBERTUS Solingen" since around 1950 when Ritter did aquire the J.Albert Schmidt Nachf. firm.
