Lots of gun threads, what about a knife thread?

    What I've done several times is step outside, found a tree, and stabbed the knife in the tree where no one could see. They've always been there when I came back, but I do live in Arkansas. Lol

    Would be interested in seeing any Microtech, Pirahna, Benchmade, Boker, Spyderco, Cold Steel, anything that looks like a turtle (Pancehenko) or a squid (Burnley) or Knives of Alaska.

    I think I pied $30 at a local gun shop. Even at that price it's a steal for a Kershaw. Holds an awesome edge, the shape of the blade makes it super versatile, and I end up using the bit drivers way more than I thought I would. No loose door knobs, or cabinet handles in my house... The bottle opener gets a little use as well :D

    I didn’t want to start a new thread. I’m seeking info on hunting knives. I’m not looking to break the bank. Are most hunting knives non folding? My preference would be a non folding knife. No serrations.
    Let’s start under 50 bucks.

    Can I use the same knife for squirrel as well as deer? Looking for advice.

    No. Who even asks that question? You clearly need a squirrel specific knife. Jesus.

    Cold Steel master hunter in regular, or San mai if you have excess cash.

    He who seeks knowledge. I will assume that you were hatched in the Geritol age. Sounds like you need more fiber in your diet.

    I'm looking for sub $70. I'm thinking that I want a comfortable handle seamless handle for easy cleaning. I'm assuming with the increase in price that affords me a better quality steel that will hold an edge? I'm trying to make an informed purchase. Would I better off with a dual purpose gutting/skinning knife?

    They do a plus model from memory with hook. Aah, discontinued. C's is usually available second hand in most models on knife, Edc and bushcraft forums. I don't hunt but recall this was the go-to blade in that lower price point. The San Mai version is a laminate blade, it's cool but unnecessary.


    Generally yes but sometimes just buys bragging rights with a super steel that most people wouldn't know different. The cs knives perform well enough and are cheap enough to be disposable.

    I have these two, though they don't fit your price range. https://www.eseeknives.com/product/izula-ii and https://www.benchmade.com/hidden-canyon-hunter-family.html

    This one looks like it would work well, https://www.gerbergear.com/Activity/HUNT/Knives/Myth-Fixed-Blade-Pro-Drop-Point_31-001092 and https://www.bladehq.com/item--Spyderco-Bow-River-Fixed-Blade--85407

    First several deer I did with those $.99 truck stop folding knife with a maybe 1.5" blade. You know those plastic yellow/pink/or black ones in the gum bucket on the counter...razor sharp (for the first deer). With a bit of technique you can break down even large animals (elk) with not much besides 'sharp'. You don't need much for field dressing anything. I use my kitchen knifes for butchering/packaging later.
