Default Deer butchering/processing knives

Looking over the posts over the prior week or so, there have been some nice deer taken so far this season – congratulations to all. I tied my personal best this season with 4, so far. My freezer is close to full.

While butchering my fourth deer, it came to me that I was sharpening my knife way to often, say every five minutes or so. I need something that will hold an edge longer. What knives do you use to butcher your deer? Recommendations?

I have alot of knives! Mywife got me outdoor edge hunting set (3 knives, skinner, guthook, & bone/wood saw). Best thing she ever got me in our 11 years. She got it for me about 5 years ago & I have not had to sharpen them yet! I love them for buthering. Just my2 cents. I know there are better out there.

I use the Henckels and Ladvar deboning knives and they hold an edge pretty good but my son uses the Victorinox & Icel knives used for his work and also hold an edges. We then use a Cambrian Steel (rats tail) to keep the edge going instead of using a stone. This helps in prolonging the life of a blade.

I use a 30 year old Coleman/Western SS skinner! I've got Case, Buck, and others, but for skinning, and butchering, I wouldn't trade my old Coleman!

For de-boning and cutting the meat up I have not found anything better than my old fillet knife. Also an electric fillet knife works really well for slicing the steaks and cleaning the junk away from the meat.
