I use the old US made Schrade, good sharp carbon steel, no stainless for me.
I love my Dan Stucky fixed blade made from s30v. I have skinned 5 deer with it and I've never sharpened it. You'll have to wait about a year to get it after ordering though.
Its all about the steel and heat treat my friend. A decent knife shouldent have to be touched thru several deer anyway. Hand made knives can be had for very respectable prices and will out perform the vast majority of commercially available knives hands down. We sharpen with our equipment in the shop so its only a couple minute process for us. We finish with a leather honing belt on a belt grinder with white rouge. It makes for a freakishly sharp edge. You can invest in a small two wheel grinder with paper and buffer wheels or a small (2 x 42) grinder and belts. Learn on junk knives though. Its a much sharper and finer edge than you can ever hope to get on a stone (unless its japanese water stones)
The Cold Steel Master Hunter has been my choice for the past 15 years. I don't think I need to look for anything else.
benchmade is the way to go! I also have gerber which do get sharp and stay sharp, but i like my benchmade a heck of a lot better
I use a Buck folding hunter, it is stainless though. but it does sharpen pretty easy and will hold the edge good.
I use a bench made. Very good knife.
hen and rooster is the only way to go
cany go wrong ther ei have been using the same model for over 20 years great knife
I use a Havalon for back packing trips, outstanding! I've had a Buck Special fixed blade for 15 years for other hunts. It gets it done.

I own case buck puma kershaw and some others but my western 640 usa has to be the tuffest yet and holds a edge. I fount mine in a old car and kept it to clean snapping turtles..

I tell you what buy one use it and if you do not like it I will gladly pay you what you have in it..

Ha! Just checked the brand, I used a rada (my woman's) set to butcher mine today. Worked well after I sharpened them up.
