    A good trusty knife is like a hunters best friend . So what is your favorite knife ? I’m always looking for a nice smaller sized fixed blade or even maybe a folder for field dressing deer . But it seems like I always end up breaking out my 25 year old Buck110s and putting the new knife to the side when the work starts . Deer ducks and geese it’s not perfect , it’s kind of heavier , but it’s what I always fall back on when in the field .

    Ive cleaned (breasted) countless ducks with a buck 605 or a 422+. They are a hard to sharpen but they keep an edge better than anything I've used. Deer? No.

    I'll never use anything else for deer now that I have a Mcroskey knife. He's also a true gentleman and a pleasure to talk to.

    Buck Titanium which I believe is a 110 with a Titanium handle. It's fairly slender but still has a nice weight to it, good balanced feel in my hand. Unfortunately I think they quit making them. I have a couple i have bought on ebay over the years though.

    Benchmade Mini Griptillian everyday carry. Buck 110 or Buck Pathfinder for heavier work. Also have a Sog Ageis Mini that I sometimes rotate with the Benchmade..

    Fillet knife. I have a few. Fiskars and a 3 pak I bought at Gander Mtn for like $8 or so. I like to use them for breasting out geese. Surgical sharp and precise.

    I carry an unlikely pocket knife, a cheap Chinese folder that I won at a *** dinner. It's light and stays amazingly sharp. I believe it has a 3" blade. For cleaning game, a Buck 110 that I bought back in the 60s.

    54101_1000.jpg Used these for over 40 years 8hrs a day. Very versatile & hold an edge. You just have to make a sheath

    Nostalgia is great. I still have my Buck 110 from about 40 years ago. Skinned many a deer with it, and a couple of elk. Great knife, holds a pretty good edge.

    But, nothing beats a Havalon for skinning or fillet work. Well balanced, ultra sharp, easy to switch blades. It is all I have used for waterfowl for about 4 years now. My buddy does the trapping thing, and puts up 40+ yotes and other critters a year. He has a collection fillet knives, and is constantly re-sharpening them. I gave him a Havalon a couple of years ago. When I came back the next year, he made it a point to thank me. It is pretty much the only knife he uses now.
