    I never knew there were so many blade options available. All different shapes, sizes and strengths. Thanks for mentioning it.

    Not all blades will fit the Piranta handle. The #70 or rounded nose blade #60 will fit this handle. They also make a smaller version that accepts the #22 blade. I use these blades every day in my studio and have completely quartered the last 6 Elk with just this knife.
    Now every guy in our camp carries one.

    I just bought a Piranta at Cabelas yesterday. I was amazed at how much thinner the blades are that come with it than they are on the Baracutta I have. For those who like the Havalon concept but don't like the thin blades of the Piranta you should really check out the Baracutta. I thought it might be to big and bulky when I first got it, but after we used in on our 4 antelope we all loved it. It's real easy to choke up your grip on for fine work without worry of slipping. I will keep the Piranta for caping, but prefer the Baracutta of the two. It also takes the fillet blades for fish or boning, really multi-purpose. The bigger blades of the Baracutta look much harder to break and are much easier to change without tools.

    I thought of that when I bought the Piranta. I wanted something small to get into tight spots. Like getting out the tenderloins when using the gutless method. I haven't broke a blade yet, but as I said earlier. I'll switch to my Buck knife for the heavy work.

    I do like the fillet blade on the Barracutta for fish, so I might still buy one. Then I can see how it compares to the Piranta for game.

    My Piranta is the only knife I carry (plus a few extra blades). I snap a blade once in a while, but I don't have trouble swapping them. I don't think I will ever go back to a traditional blade.

    Skinned out two deer, only one blade and still have all 10 fingers. I'm quite happy with this knife.
