I have to admit to being a collector. I have about 100 knives from well know companies like Western, SOG, Gerber, Buck, Linder, Cold Steel and many custom knives.
BUT!! I use a very inexpensive knife for most outdoor chores, including hunting. This is the Mora knife made in scandanavia (sweeden I think). It is made of very good stainless with a plastic handle and platic sheath. You can get them from sportsmans guide (www.sportsmansguide.com
) for a paltry 10 bucks. I have 3. They come really sharp from the factory and hold an edge well while being easy to sharpen. The size and weight is perfect for hunting and camping. Look, if you need to chop something, use a tomahawk or small hatchet. You will finish alot quicker.
At 10 bucks, you can buy one and if you dion't like it for hunting, put it in you tackle box. But you will love it. However, if you want something cool and showy at deer camp (and I completely understand if you do, believe me), stick with SOG, Cold Steel, Gerber, Buck and Puma.
