Whts ur huntin knife?
 
What knife do you use in the field? :rock:

cjgjr 04-14-2010 09:03 PM

Hmmmmmmm?
I have so many,
I would have to say the past yrs its been the buck vanguard series,the zipper model and without.
But this yr gonna give the Outdoor edge swingblade a try,Cause i always have trouble with the the guttn zipper clogging up with hair on the other zipper knifes.And the swingblade got almost the same knife blade design as the buck vanguard.So it will probably be my new fav...

bronko22000 04-18-2010 04:44 AM

The same one I've used for years. A Buck folding Select a Blade hunter. A nice blaze orange handle so I don't loose it.

thehitman 04-18-2010 05:02 AM

knives now that is something i know
 
every knife named in here and good knives but to be honest if you want a good field knife i would suggest something with a non slip handle. for example a gerber gator has a non slip handle and can be used for all the purposes. also another suggestion would be to get a game care knife set that you can carry with you in the field there are several companies that make them. here are a few. kershaw,ontario knife company,smith and wesson.


and if anybody needs any advice on knives please feel free to contact me. and just so you know that i have a idea of what i am talking about you can contact deerdust or even squeaks who both know about my background in this field

I have two that I use.
1) Buck folding hunter model-110
2) Browning three blade knife.

My third knife I bought about 30-years ago I found out a few years back it was a collectors item. I do not use it anymore.

scarp262 04-27-2010 09:51 AM

Yes, I've used scalpels. But I carry 2 Swiss Army knives. I don't do much processing in the field, just clean'em and hang'em.

You like the scalpels?

northeasthunter 05-25-2010 06:13 PM

Honestly, there are so many good knives out there. I've used Primos, Buck Knife, Old Timer and Marble.

This year I'm trying a Schrade. They have quite the selection, but I've snagged a couple to see which one I like best.

I never use a gut hook and I cut through the sternum, so I need a pretty strong knife. Several have held up wonderfully in the past, but I've started to lean away from folding knives and use fixed blades more.

Though I've heard good things about those outdoorsman utility knives. Dunno how well they work, but I bet they're a wonder on small game.

Pope94/IA 05-26-2010 10:42 AM

Anybody use gerber? What do you think of them? I bought a set a few months back and only used it on a turkey so far. The knife was pretty dang sharp.

Parrot Head 05-27-2010 07:58 AM

I know several people use the Havalon (Sp) it is a scaple blade that they just change out when needed.

stags pad 05-27-2010 03:03 PM

field knives
 
i use 2 in the hills one is my custom made steve wheeler,which fits just beautifully and the other is a kershaw blur assisted opening folder....i would like to get a ZT(zero tolerance) they are a very fine knife and the handles are great for non slip,gut hooks on knives i dont like at all,the gut hook that buck bought out was sposed to be a breakthru in field dressin but after some snooping around i found out that the design was copied from the alaskan trappers who deliberatly put that on their knives to lift the billy off the fire....go figure!!

pa_yote_hunter 07-13-2010 07:35 AM

Right now I use a Buck Omni Hunter 10, but we will see what I end up with later this season.....its a decent knife, but I am wanting something a little nicer.

DeerandbearhoG 07-13-2010 09:49 AM

.99 box cutter. Zips a deer open quicker than anything ive used even skinned, and butchered w/ em, its also good in case you have to cut yourself out of you saftey harness/vest quickly. if you lose or break it, who cares? Not too pretty though.

PY Antlers 07-13-2010 10:42 AM

A sharp one! With a backup

garett12 07-13-2010 11:10 AM

I use a puma,and I also use mt Gerber with a gut hook for skinning.

ACutting 07-15-2010 07:33 AM

I use a Gerber Gator Fixed Blade, its a great knife. The no-slip handle is great for gutting, and the curve in the handle works great for skinning. I also typically carry Leatherman for all purpose cutting and utility work when needed.

With this combo, pretty much ready for anything from skinning a squirrel to gutting a moose - from removing a splinter to performing emergency gun repair.

Also never leave home with out a hand-held sharpener in my pack, doesn't give as good of an edge as a diamond stone, but it can put a decent edge on a knife pretty quickly when in a pinch.

VAhuntr 07-20-2010 04:01 AM

I have several that I have used over the years to include: Case XX, Old Timer, Helle Fjellkniven, Buck 110, and finally a Cutco Hunting Knife.
My favorites are the Cutco and the Buck 110.

Camillius .30-06 lock-blade and Gerber Gator fixed-blade non-serrated.

Bought the Camillius ~ 18 years ago. Field-dressed and processed 60+ deer and it still take and holds a fine edge. Rips through the breastbone with little effort.

The Gator has a very nice grip, only used it a few times for field-dressing. Much lighter in weight, I may be carrying this one more as I get older!!!!!!!!!

I make my own knives from 24" industrial circular saw blades 1/8 inch thick. they are high carbon steel that hold an awsome edge. best part is they cost me 0$ (except for the leather for the sheath). I dont need a zipper blade or hook to skin or fld dress any deer. dont be afraid your going to get blood on yourself anyway.

7remmag 07-21-2010 07:02 PM

first one is a BillyBob custom

next is a texasnewf custom bullnose skinner

Alsatian 07-22-2010 09:02 AM

I use a variety of knives. I like my Buck 110 folding knife most generally unless special circumstances prevail. When I skinned and cut up an elk last year I used a Schrade fixed blade knife with a gut hook that worked very well and stayed sharp throughout. I don't like the gut hook -- no need for it and it can get in the way -- but the curve of the blade and the continued sharpness were very welcome. It has a nice non-slick handle. I also have a Jim Zumbo Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation knife, maybe made by Schrade?, that is about 6" long that I like pretty well. I don't remember whether I used it on my elk or not, but that is when that longer blade might be useful. I also have a small folding all-stainless knive -- about a 1.5" blade -- I think by Schrade that I use for gutting ducks.

Blackelk 07-23-2010 07:09 PM

Could always keep an ole buck 110 around in good shape. I've switched over to a Case XX and haven't looked back. I carry alot of knives never know which day you might be skinning alot of game.

Chuck7 07-24-2010 02:40 PM

This one..for the field..and the Buck Skinner for later..


Racksnquacks 08-23-2010 04:58 PM

I stumbled across an online knife store. They have pocket knives, straight blades, hook tips, multi tools, lots of stuff. www.pocketkniveshome.com Worth a look for sure. Waiting for my new gerber gator.... anyways check it out!
