Thanks for choosing Raptorazor and thanks for the review. We make the Big Game Skinner and MANO knives in both aluminum and high-performance polymer versions. Some hunters like the life-time durability of aluminum and others value lower pack-in weight above any other consideration, so we offer both. If you think an aluminum knife would be better for your needs, a great chance to get one at an unbeatable price is during our Cyber Monday Sale on Monday.
Best regards & Happy Hunting!
