What’s In A Name?

Q: How did the Muskrat pattern get its name?

A: The Muskrat pattern was so named because of the popularity of the long, slender blade got skinning pelts – in particular, muskrats. Because that was the ideal blade for such work, it only made sense to add a second blade just like the first.
