This isn't a fancy knife, but it sure does work well. It is well made, with excellent steel (1095 cro-van steel, same as the Ka-Bar marine knife) which takes a keen edge and is easy to sharpen.

Don't overlook the Russell 5 1/4" bladed sheep skinner knife. Can't beat it for $12.27. Make your own home made sheath, and you have a knife that will work in the field as well as knives costing many times more.

I just might put some micarta scales on it for a simple and fun customization project.

Nothing wrong with that blade at all.

Try to look unimportant. Your enemy might be low on ammo.

Mild hijack here, but has anyone tried the Cold Steel "Canadian Belt Knife"?


Another under $20 knife, looks like it might be a nice pattern to keep around as an extra skinning knife when the one your using gets dull.


for every hour in front of the computer you should have 3 hours outside

It's a nice pattern for small game, and does well in a pinch for larger game. My DhRussell has cleaned quite a few deer. I really prefer a finger guard when I'm gutting and this design seems to slip in my hand a bit.

I always loved the Dexter knives, but where can you get the different blades with no handles?

It's junk, I gave about $8 for mine. I use it in the Kitchen, but it rust like crazy.
