Skinner + hatchet = Skachet. Just curious if anyone ever used one of these while bowhunting, or camping, or at all.

A skinning knife, hatchet, hammer and hide scraper all in one. Does it do them all well, or any of them, or some of them, or non of them? Some have compared the blade to an Alaskan ulu.

Interesting that the inventors last name was Frisbie, (Herbert F.). However, no connection to the Frisbee, or the Frisbie Pie Company. I'll let you look up that one.

What say you, knaves?

Interesting tool Ira.  Looks handy and compact.  Not too sure about a hatchet though. [confused]

I appreciate the economy of the idea of combining multiple tools into one, but...  It never seems to work out well for me when two important tools are combined into one.  Utility always seems to suffer.  Amphicar, over and under .410/22, combination square, etc.  OK, but never as good as both of the gizmo's they were intended to replace.

I bought a back-pack once that combined binocular straps into the shoulder straps.  Great! I thought.  Except if I had the straps tight enough to keep the pack on my back, I couldn't raise the bino's.  And if I had them loose enough to raise the bino's, the pack swung around my back like a monkey.

First one I've seen that I recall. I googled it and found a couple of utube vids and an eBay ad. $80
I was wondering about the hatchet/hammer part but a vid cleared that up.

I had one, but that was a long time ago... I don't remember much about it, so I assume that I was underwelmed with the actual product... It was difficult to find a branch that was small enough to fit in the head and tough enough to withstand the abuse chopping. Dad said that I could tear up a steel rail, I suppose it was the same with the Skatchet.

These were available in the 80's as I remember.  The bottom has a hole to accept a handle to make it a hatchet.  Frank

Looks to me, with a short hit on a branch with the hatchet end, a trip to the hospital would be in short order.

The fact that they are not really popular today is telling. I remember these, but never owned one.

 Probably early 70's when I got mine for Christmas. Good solid feel, blade could be as sharp as you want it, gut hook equipped, and a hammer on the other end. If you needed more horsepower you chopped a limb and threaded into the hollow of the hammer.

 It came with a heavy leather sheath with a belt loop. A great tool.....which is probably why they don't make it anymore.  Kind of like the L.L. Bean Rucksack if you know what I mean.

Always thought about getting one of these but  thought they were over priced and just plain looked like another gimmick .
Thought the same thing about the Sportsman's Pal until I wound up inheriting one that I now use frequently .
Anyone know where to get a Skatchet ?

No biggie. I thought if it was around $20 I might want one for the novelty but not 80.

I bought one back in the 70's and used to carry it hunting.  Don't remember how much I used it. If sharpened properly I think it could be a handy tool especially in survival situations.  Forgot I even had it, it's in my stuff somewhere.

I never tried one, because it just didn't look practical to me.
