I have always said "You need the right tool for the job", sure you can get by now and then, and I am sure if needed be most could gut a deer with a fillet knife, practical? no! But, can be done. You could fillet a fish with a cleaver if you had to also.

IMO if one is looking for a general/versatile knife to cover sm. game and the occasional gutting/skinning of a deer........it is hard to beat a folding pocket knife such as a CaseXX Trapper or Med. Stockman knife. My great uncle never carried anything more than that for over 70 yrs in the deer woods and he gutted tons of deer with it.

I would have to agree with you FULLDRAWXX75!
I have seen my Grandpa do many things with his pocket knife.
I have seen him peel apples with the same knife he gutted and skinned deer with. I think that generation did whatever they had to with what they had available at the time.

I would check to see if it is legal to own in your state............it is not an assisted open, it is a switchblade.

I'll second the Havalon. For small game, espeically, you need a razor sharp, short and precise knife.

Bucklite Mini Max is awesome. Any of Buck's recent stuff is great.

I've used a Buck 110 Titanium for years and man does that thing hold its edge.
