    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)

    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 Havalon for back packing trips, outstanding! I've had a Buck Special fixed blade for 15 years for other hunts. It gets it done.

    Here man
    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 leave the bone in my turtle and i use this knive and hammer to cut through the bones. It has cleaned more deer hogs and a few cows then i care to remember + there cheep to buy. 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..
    For the sake of saying I dont have one for sale nor do i know the ebayer above..
    Like you said I would hate to lose a $100 + knife

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