    I found this old video the other day, and the gentleman hosting the video was showing how to butcher a deer. He had this tool that he used to break the sternum and the pelvis. It looked like a long "U." Has anybody ever seen a tool like this?

        you could make one fairly easily take a 1x2 flat steel sharpen one side then heat and bend and weld a 1" piece of round stock to it and you have it. Most guys I now either us a hatchet or a thick blade knife and drive it through. Your idea would be safer and a cleaner more controled cut.

          What he did was place the end of the U on around the sternum and then pulled up, the sternum cut like butter. I don't know if the insides of the U where sharp or not.

            You shouldn't need to break the sternum or pelvis in order to butcher a deer. By breaking them, you increase the risk of bone fragments in your meat.

              AH I know the knife of which you speak, unfortunatly I don't know who makes it (I'll Check around) It is split has a pretty good blade and has another on top with about a one inch gap that runs about 6-8 inches. You can skill with the blade then lever up and cut the ribs and tenderloins out. Crap I wish I could remeber, I can see it, black handle like a butcher knife.
