I have the Havalon Piranta and the Outdoor Edge Razor Pro. Both knives have replaceable blades and both are very sharp. I think the Havalon might be a little sharper where the Outdoor Edge feels a little bit more sturdy due to it having a wider handle and blade. But I think you would be satisfied with either one.

I've been using an Outdoor Edge SwingBlaze (same as the swingblade but in orange) for 2 years now. Holds a good edge. Nice and grippy and the zipper blade works exactly as advertised.

Now for skinning back at home I use what is called a sheep skinner. Then a boning knife and a large "steak" knife for further butchering.

I have the Swingblade and love it. However....how in the wide world of sports do you sharpen the curved blade?

I carry a buck 113 as my regular hunting knife and use a gerber (havalon knock off) with scalpel blades for fine work like caping out a deer

It took maybe 5 mins to dress up my buck 110, sharp as a razor.
I've had several and the buck 110 is my favorite.

Classic, I am in the process of looking for a another hunting knife considering the 110 as well as a few other buck knifes.

ESEE-3 or the "free" little fixed blade I got with my NRA renewal. I like a shorter knife that I can get my finger up at the tip of the blade. Just feels more controlled to me.

At the end of the day....any knife will work if it's sharp and you know how to use it.

I have been using a Schrade old timer sharp finger for as long as I remember. Still have the same one from when I started hunting in 1980.
Yep, grandmother gave me mine at the age of 12.
it has gutted every deer I’ve killed plus a few others.
in the pack 24-7, 365!!!

I had an original schade with the gut hook, kept it for years until one day I broke the tip trying to pry a leg joint apart a little too forcefully. I ordered a new one, which is now foreign made, but it seems the same to me. I have it in my field dressing kit along with a cheap blade I found out in the woods, and a Havalon that I got to try out. Honestly, all of these work well, specially when they are freshly sharpened, and I kind of prefer the cheap one, probably because it has a nicely shaped blade, one day I'll try and recreate that shape with better steel.

I've been a fan of Bob Dozier knives for several years......he does a great job heat treating D2 steel for using/working knives. I've used the two in the pics to field-dress, skin and bone out deer, elk, and smaller critters for many years.

Buck 102 with a brown handle. A classic look and works great, just don't lose the edge it can be rough getting it back on some Buck models.
