I like USA western fixed for deer.

German is good too. puma skinner, and old wustof hunter, and a little Kuno Ritter Hubertus.

I really like my helle, but it is a newer acquisition.
The out door edge is always around as a back up but i have never used it on a deer.

The big western stays in the door pocket of my truck, you never know.

Anything with an orange grip. So much easier to find in the leaves by a gut pile. Not particular on the brand but have a couple of Benchmade.
Yeah, at one point , Buck made some orange handles, may still, i dont, but myself and dad used them a lot , he has been gone for 20 years, so been awhile, another reason, i liked the outdoor edge, had orange handles.

Anyone use Wiebe? For the money, those look like nice knives.

I got some type of bone handle gut hook dad gave me when I killed my first buck for the field. As far as working up my deer at home I like to use a rapala 9 in and rapala 5 in filet knives. Simple, sharpen easy, I just like ‘em!

Also, I saw a wood handle knife in a post that has a folding blade and you let the blade out then turn the little piece at the top of the handle locking the blade in, just wanted to say my dad designed some bone/antler handled similar to that and has sold hundreds through the years at Boonesborough, Blue Licks, Friendship, etc…doesn’t make them anymore.

Case in the pocket for every day use. Bubba blade Turkinator for deer and turkey. My filet knife is so old I couldn’t tell you what the hell it is but it just keeps working.

Love the old Western knives with the wrapped handles! I need to track them all down & take pics....

In the kitchen, I pretty much only use Rada - gotta a whole knife block full of various shapes & sizes and seems like I use most of 'em two or three times a week, depending on what I'm cutting up. Also use them for deer processing (after the gutting, skinning & quartering is complete).

Meanwhile, the hubby was so bowled over by the hand forged Damascus steel knife I got him for Christmas that I'm doing a repeat for his birthday next month... and the same guy had a cute little one - on the left - that I couldn't resist buying for myself!
