    I carry a 110 style folder and sometimes a 119. My last deer I gutted with a 2" buck folder which was all I had. I now prefer it to all the others it made for very quick clean work.

    I have a Buck 110 folder in my pack and for the last few years I've used and love The "traditional hunter" in the Cabela's guide series that's on my hip. It has turned out to be a great knife. I was very impressed with the steel and how well it holds it's edge.

    1930s Ka-Bar 4.5" drop point stacked leather without finger grooves. A very fine old knife. Cleaned three bucks with it this year (none of which were shot by me) and at least a freezer full of various birds. And the season's not over yet! Which reminds me, I have a limit of rooster pheasants still to take care of tonight. Really had to work for them though. My legs feel like spaghetti and when we got home tonight the dogs were almost too pooped to eat.

    I carry a Buck 110 on my belt and an Outdoor Edge folding flip blade in my backpack. The Outdoor Edge flip blade is a super knife to field dress a deer. It has a folding saw in the case too. I have used it on several deer and wouldn't use anything else. My Buck 110 has been retired for that job.

    I like my case leather stacked handle, this year I found a custom made Anza knife. The guy makes them California out of files and makes a wood laminate handle for them and leather sheath. It feels very well made and a razor sharp edge can't wait to try it out on a deer.

    I carry knives for different reasons. I carry an Uncle Henry because it was my grandfathers. My go to skinner is a Spyderco. You can get that thing razor sharp. It just doesn't keep the edge as long as some of my others.

    I use a classic Buck fixed blade. Solid for cutting chest and long enough for cutting out quarters. OK for skinning if necessary but doesn't keep an edge for skinning multiple animals like a Case or Shrade folding knife. I use a Shrade Old Timer for skinning and boning, usually back at camp. They stay sharp for about a dozen antelope or deer before they need sharpening... amazing to me.

    I make benchmade knives and always carry one of my own. I have a favorite that I have used for a couple of years, but if I find myself in different hunting situations I may carry a larger or different one of my blades. I haven't found a store bought knife that will hold an edge as well as any of my high carbon blades. To each his own.
