    I got one a few months before eastmans was giving them away, I started useing it on my antelope this year but went back to my buck knife as well , because the havalon was flimsy. I take the havalon on backcountry hunts, if I need to really save on wieght.......other than that I like something a little more, heavy duty. I would say the only benifit is the weight savings, the blades are a pain in the ass to change when your hands are bloody. Not to be to hard on havalon........but they're really a over priced razor blade.

    I don't know if you guys watch the Meateater on TV? The Piranta is all he uses for everything he kills.

    I already got rid of mine. I don't care for the blade and how flexible it is. A guy could loose a finger if it broke. I used it on the wife's antelope and was not impressed. I went for my good ol Blade Tech to finish him up. Now that's a knife I love!

    I did not get along with the excessive flex either. It's great for foxes and coyotes, but I don't care for it on big game.

    Thanks, glad you enjoyed the pics.

    The baracutta works good on fish also. I just keep fish between 5 and 15lbs though, never tried it on a giant. Some of those fish could be older than me so I throw them back to keep getting bigger. I also read where a 40lb fish produces more eggs than eighteen 8lb fish so it helps keep the numbers up. I love to catch the giants, the only real big game around home is flathead and whitetail. I catch plenty of 5 to 15lbs fish that produce lots of meat per fish so I don't have to keep as many.

    Not to mention the genetics of the 40 lb fish that allowed it to get that big.

    +1 i use mine every day. Its not the plastic one though its the metal with elk inscribed. Its clearly states on their site that yes the blades are skinny and weak thats the price to be paid for sharpness. And convenience

    That too. We have good genetics and a good river for flathead to grow in. Lots of food for them.
