      My favorite is my Buck Packlite Skinner, not overly long, very light for going in a long ways. As with every Buck knife I own it takes a bit to sharpen, however it holds an edge better than the 110 folding hunter that seems to always find a place in my pack. It held its edge through the first three deer of season, gutted for my physically challenged hunters. Touched the blade up for elk hunting and handled my bull with no problem, another touch up and it finished season on two big whitetail does.

            I have many knives from custom hand made to cheap folders. But a cheap fixed blade 5 1/2" with a gut hook and rubber grips is the one I usually carry. It retains sharpness and I wouldn't be out too much if lost in the field. CRKT Wild River

              I use one made by a fellow named John Toner from AZ (cdknives.com). It has a guard that is part of the handle. The guard flips down to cover the point when you open the animal. It is like having a zipper. Sounds gimmicky but works like a charm.
              I use a wire saw for the pelvis and I have found that I can cut the ribs away from the sternum with the same knife in less time. Elk I used a saw from Outdoor Edge.

                Cabela's guide series Traditional hunter(wood handle) bought the knife about 5 years ago and have found no use for another knife. Gutted and skinned 4 deer with it last year before I felt like sharpening it again and I didn't really need to. For a $40 knife I am still very impressed with it, you can't beat it!

                  I need to add too, that when I gut a deer I split the rib cage and pelvis with my knife.

                    Hello all, Rick Genovese here. I have a slight correction for Happy Miles comment. I am alive and very healthy and still making knives in my Dolores,Co. shop. The deceased knifemaker was my good friend and awesome knifemaker Jim Hardenbrook who unfortunately died just a few miles from my cabin. Please check my website:www.rickgenoveseknives.com to see what I'm making these days. Thanks, Rick Genovese

                      Many apologies Rick. As so often relying on second hand information is always risky. Checked my knife collection, and indeed have a knife by Hardenbrook and one by you, both given to me by a friend many years ago. I like yours the best. It has been used all over the world, Africa, Mexico, Canada, continental US, Alaska, Middle East ( all of the "Stan's") sheep hunting. Promise to check your website. What is the old saying, "the rumor of my demise is highly exaggerated".
