Default Lightweight blades for backpacking

Seeking advice from those that pack light on what kind (or specifically brand) of knife you carry. Most of my deer/elk hunting is via backpack, so Iím always looking to shave weight down. The last few years Iíve carried a couple of decent quality 4Ē-sih trapper knives. So basically I have 4 blades to work with. But are there any better ideas out there? Any and all feedback appreciated. Thank you.

Since no one has jumped in yet with a comment what about a Spyderco H1 Salt folder ?

I carry one almost every day. The blade tip is drop point enough to be a decent skinner /hunting knife and it is very light weight. The steel is about a rust proof as you can get and holds an edge very well. Overall this is one of my favorite knives. The street price is not too bad either at about $60

Here's a pic of one.

Kershaw are nice light weight knives however I've also found that custom knife makers are the way to go when wanting specific criteria, lightweight and holding an edge
