What is the Skinning Knife for?
As we said before, it is a knife whose purpose is the collection of different materials. One of the most common uses is to obtain animal meatin such a way that if we do not have the skinning knife it will be impossible to get meat, even if you have killed an animal.
Another utility of the skinning knife is to extract the skin of animals, with which you can later manufacture other products. But in addition to this, one of the peculiarities of this knife is that comes at different levelsso the higher the level of your knife, the more chances you have to get rarer and better quality materials.
On the other hand, it is necessary to clarify that the collection capacity of any material, depending on its level, will depend on the ability to track and skin; that is, the level of the skinning knife only gives you better bonuses.

Now then, as for obtaining the knife, the first of them you get at the beginning of the game, in one of the missions presented in the tutorial. At this point, if you want to make it, the game will ask for flint from the ground and green wood from the bushes, and then use them in a fig tree or forge, where we will make our first knife.
Other ways to get these knives is by defeating some enemies and final bosses; also fulfilling certain specific missions of the video game. But keep in mind that this will lead to more dedication time, because in the first steps of the game, the following levels of the skinning knife will not appear.
