    Used the Paranta this last fall on a couple Bull elk and a Whitetail buck. The blades are a little flimsy, but awesome for caping around the eyes, nose and lips. The biggest obsticle was spitting the hide up the back of the neck on the bulls and the blade was a bit too short for boning. That thick hide made that little knife work for it so I'll keep my second knife with me in the pack for sure.

    Box cutters work great! The razor blades are cheap in price. I can do an entire elk hide with one blade. I only use Havlon's for facial work to capes I keeping.

    Havalon knives are WICKED sharp so you need to be extremely careful! But, they are the best knife I have ever used and will ever use. Replacement blades are cheap and there is nothing sharper. I usually use 2-3 blades on an elk. I don't carry anything else. Hands down, they are top notch!

    I like them...but they do break when forced to bend a way they are not meant to. Handled mostly whitetails at this point, but looking forward to boning an elk or muley. Light for packing too.
