    For $100 you can buy a Spyderco or CRKT with a ATS-34 blade that will do damn near a whole elk.

    For $500 you can buy a Diamond blade knife that will do 10 elk without being sharpened again.

    I used to have a love affair with razor bladed swap handle knives at work. I figured out it's easier to sharpen a good knife than get stitches over a crappy one.
    I don't get your post? How much do you think the Havalon costs? I paid $33 for mine, and it comes with 12 extra blades. More blades cost $6.50 for a dozen. If you're not ham fisted you can easily do a whole elk with one blade. Seems pretty cheap to me.

    Yeah, I just got mine when I renewed my eastmans subscriptions, cost something like $10 (shipping price). I wish the knife and blades came with a carry pouch so that I could keep them together. Mine showed up in a box. The knife did great on the antelope I shot earlier this month.

    Hey buckbull. They do make a sheath for their knives. Check out their website. You can get one in leather or nylon.(the nylon is about $6.00) The sheath will hold the knife and a box of extra blades. The only thing I would tell you is don't put the sheath on your belt because the stitching on the belt loop is a little weak.(my friend almost lost his) Good luck!

    Yeah, mine came with the nylon version, but I bought mine. I guess you get the economy version for free.

    I was also very disappointed with the havalons. Within 5 minutes i went through 3-4 blades working a bull elk. Maybe I did pry on it a little bit but would not trust this as my only knife in the field. Good thing my other 2 partners were able to pick up the slack while i was changing blades. I will carry the extra weight and know I have a good knife! Those who swear by them must have the hands of a surgeon.

    So, you can only keep from cutting yourself with dull knives?

    IMO a dull knife is a dangerous knife.

    I doubled down on elk this weekend and let me tell you the energy you save on a sharp knife. I love mine, incredibly sharp which saves you energy on big animals.... Just to get your butt kicked on a pack out I went through 2 blades on the 2 elk.

    I love em...I've gutless field dressed five animals with mine this year. I just use my Benchmade around the hip sockets.

    It's one of those products that I look at and think "why didn't I think of that one"....lol
