Default gut knife

ok guys last year i bought a remington gut knife it has a gut hook on it.

When i got home i noticed it was not sharp at all. I friend sharpened it for me.
Well i got all my stuff out and it is just to dull to use for anything wont even cut cardboard. I was thinking about buying a new knife.
What would you recommend for gutting a deer.
Also what do you guys recommend for sharpening knifes. i have thought about getting a lansky kit.

Gerber gator II with a gut hook and serrated blade. I like the serrated blade for cutting through the rib cage. The blade is sharp enough to shave with.

To answer your first question, something sharp. A lansky kit works great.

+1 I also use a lansky kit, I never had anyone around to teach me how to sharpen a knife proper on a stone.... The Lansky Kit is great, very very hard to screw it up and capable of putting on a variety of edges!

something i thought about for opening the deer up was a drywall knife my dad got from lowes.
It is a folding knife but takes razor blades that are replaceable gut the deer throw the razor away. what do you guys think of that.

The tips break off too easy, don't want that too happen and you discover it with your hand... I would think it would be too much trouble getting through the breast plate. Having a larger blade comes in handy as well when you are in the chest cavity...

Last year I grabbed my Elk knife by mistake when heading out for whitetail. Got a doe and my knife was too large to cut around the anus. I carry a razor knife in my truck always, and used it around the anus. It did a great job, but I would not want to use it anywhere else..... But to each his own, give it a shot and see how it turns out.
