Default RE: Gut hook knife blades?

Skeeter.... i also have that kershaw blade trader knife and i think its the best thing since sliced bread. Its unbveliavable how those blades hold an edge. When i am skinning beavers i usually had to sharpen up every few beavers i did but not with the kershaw knife. I haven't really used the saw blade to much because i just use a hand bone saw or our electric meat saw. We slaughtered a beef last week and i let my dad try my kershaw knife and i was using my old timer,,, he didn't want to give me the knife back. And ya that is a massive gut hook on that skinner blade and she works like a charm. But if you have a good sharp knife with a slim blade you can split the hide on the legs and down the middle just as fast. Just put the blade in and work it all the way down in one motion.

the 2 best knives i have seen are the buck and the kershaw.bucks just lose their edge too quick but they are the best made. knowing how to use a guthook makes cleaning alot faster.the only prob you will run into is finding someone to sharpen the guthook. i can sharpen a knife but not the hook.

Otis,
I have the buck pictured in a previous post. I think it's a really good knife. The handle is soft rubber and hasn't slipped for me. I really like the gut hook as, for me, it's easier to use than the traditional way of putting the drop hook onto my finger and running it along the paunch. My Buck has done two elk and 1 and 1/2 deer and it now needs sharpening. I'll send it off to Buck to sharpen as they'll do it for free (I pay shipping though).
Overall, I really like the knife and the only one I'd replace it with would be a folding Buck with a drop point, gut hook and saw that Cabelas sells for about $80.

I've owned a Gerber Gator for God knows how many years, always loved and stood bythe knife. I've never used one with a gut hook. I can gut an animal faster without. However, I am of the mind that gut hooks are a real asset to younger, inexperienced, and older hunters. I feel that gut hooks are safer for the real young hunters out there, for inexperienced hunters I think that the gut hook will help them with their first few animals until they get "the feel" of gutting an animal, and I know for my father (an older hunter) the gut hook is helpful because his hands start shaking on occasion.
