Default My deer hunting knife, now by White River

After 14 years as a custom knife maker, I finally took the step into production. I've partnered with White River Knife and Tool out of Fremont, MI to build my hunter design. The knife is 7 3/4" long with a 3 1/4" blade of CPM S35VN with various synthetic handles. This is basically the evolution of what I had in mind as the "perfect" deer hunting knife. Works for me, anyway.

Any clip-point knives? Being dumb on the advantages between clip vs drop point knives can you enlighten me?

Honestly personal preference. In my mind, the point of the knife ends up in the same place whether the spine drops off in a line or a curve. I've made plenty of both, but tend to make more drops than clips.

That said, where the point falls in relation to the spine of the knife does make a difference. I personally like my tip about 1/4" below the spine, but other folks like a straight back or upswept tip.

Prefer the folding blades. No moving parts so more durable and easy to clean.

i personally didn't recommend to buy any knife online until seen they offer refund policy. Once i bought a knife from Damascus Shop and found them quit better but i still not believe on buying online.

It's obvious guys, you remove the folding part from the knife and it has no moving parts anymore
Jokes aside, I had horrible experience when using folding knives for skinning/gutting so I'm never touching those ever again. Using folder as EDC, sometimes for backpacking, but ain't using it as hunting knife ever again
