    You want something with good steel first and foremost.

    when I hunt I carry multiple knives, everything from Bear and Sons “Alabama Damascus “ (smallest) Knives of Alaska Skinner/Gut Hook ( D2 steel and two of my Busse’s. One stays on my hip( smaller one) and the beast is for one swing removal of deer heads.( both INFI steel)

    All are razor sharp and all will hold an edge for a good long while.

    if I could only take one, it would be the smaller( 6”) Busse 8A93338D-4912-49C0-8B13-2E964962C783.jpeg

    morning, I due not own one. have read that
    knives made in Alaska r the best. will make
    for ur personal use. me I use utility knives
    because of replacement blades. I have collection
    of expensive knives. get tired of sharpening.
    hog hair in very dulling when skinning.

    I cut meat for 37 years. All the skinning I ever did was outside of that job. For the job I used Forschner Victoronix knives. Forschener makes a very resonably priced skinner, that are probabaly used extensivly in the packing plants.

    I use a Buck Open Season Small Game in S35. Don’t let the small game part of the name fool you. It is perfect size for the Texas deer around here.

    Havalons and Outdoor Edge make for quick work of skinning. Still would bring along a solid fixed blade for cartilage and other thicker sections of tissue
