Re: Need help choosing a hunting knife

For fine skinning work like a bull caribou's face where a shovel is nearly touching its face I prefer my yellow handle Case Trapper folder. Its easy to get it scalple sharp and is easy on the hand, easy to use. Mine has the 3 1/2" blade.

Contrary to what some guys say I like a really big knife for some jobs like taking the quarters off. Taking the ribs off and especially the head. I don't have to have my knife hand in the blood much.

    I picked up an Anza F-3 while I was in Colorado about 10 years ago. This knife has been through a butt load of hogs and a bunch of deer and hopefully in 2015 it will get a little elk blood on it. This knife has held up amazingly and a quick stroke on a steel and its right there ready to tackle another critter. They are made with files and I thought that they would be on the brittle side, and I will say they're anything but. It handles very well. I am very satisfied with this knife, and its not overly expensive for a custom quality knife that is intended to be used and abused.
