    I just used a Case stock man for many years. I now use a Nesmuk style for most everything. I do like a Buck skinner but still rely on anything up to elephant size.

    I have a Schrade folding knife which is very similar to the Buck 110. My son has the Buck 110 and it is a great knife also. Both are very good knives. This is my favorite knife though. It is made here in Montana and the make is Ruana. This is the Steelhead model which for me is about the perfect size and shape for most jobs in the field.

    Picked up a havalon peranta after I watched Guy cruise through a bull with it on this site. I have been more than happy with this knife, lightweight weight and crazy sharp!

    Used the Havalon extensively last season and worked awesome.

    Was skeptical at first but it never disappointed.

    Just my two cents.

    I've used a Cabelas knife, a kershaw, and a Gerber different years. As long as you don't need to cut through big bones, and you don't dull the blade on the hair I found to my surprise that a sharp knife will butcher an entire animal without sharpening. I always carried 2 knives, but next year I'll just bring one, and a small pocketknife. I like a sturdy knife with a strong blade I can use for cutting branches or other things in a pinch. The Havelon knives are tempting though...

    Used a Havalon for the first time last year and was very impressed with it. I did not find the blades to be brittle, in fact I was able to process two antelope with just one blade.

    I bought this set from outdoor edge. The Dark Timber combo. Absolutly love the steel, and it fits very well in the hand. And they look sharp on the belt!!! These have made it with me three elk now, and one deer. So far only lightly touched the edges with a stone.

    Well the guy that owns the company says on his website that he personally oversees the developement and testing of every knife they make...... And the blades have the word China stamped on the steel. So you decide....

    I dont really care one way or another where they come from, but I do care if they work and these do very well.

    Too bad the owner is clueless about truthful marketing!
