Esee 5 and I did go with the all orange option. I've lost too many knives after dressing animals to not to.For some reason this knife strikes me... what exactly is it?
I’m like Dennis and have an assortment of knives. I have a few M. Millers, a few Menefees, 3 McCroskys, and a bunch of production knives. The one that generally gets used the most is my Spyderco Impala with a guthook. I’ve clean MANY deer and pigs with that knife.I have a small assortment of hunting knives for different operations.
All around general utility knife is an older Buck Special with a 6" blade. Used it to hack off limbs using another limb as a hammer. Thick spine for strength and good steel. Also used when hacking through the rib cage of an elk.
Skinning chores go to a McKrosky elk skinner. Caping duties go to a Mike Miller knife.
Also have a trapper set from McKrosky, never being used for anything yet, but it was so cool, I had to buy it.
Super appreciate the offer! I’m still good with what I’ve got for now, but I’m gonna tuck that information away for later.Esee 5 and I did go with the all orange option. I've lost too many knives after dressing animals to not to.
If you'd like one, I'll be heading past Smoky Mountain Knife Works next weekend. I can pop in and pick it up.
KoA make great knives. I’ve got one of their Ulu’s, and I’ve skinned a lot of deer with it. It’s kind of hard to sharpen, but I figured out that I can do it with my Worksharp.For many years used Buck knives, Kbar or Old Timer but about 10 yrs ago found Knives of Alaska. Handmade knives that are excellent and retain a edge, they are my go to today for any field dressing, skinning or butchering. The one that gets the most use has cleaned 6 deer and still retains a edge. View attachment 226196Excellent quality for the price.
