    No gut hook on any of my knives. Good lock blade 4inches and a fillet knife 8 inches is what I use. I like Puma, Buck, Gerber or custom knives.

    I like Havalon prianta knives. They are super sharp and light weight. They are no good for prying.

    +1 on the Havalon products. Stay sharp a long time and are really light.

    Outdoor edge flip and zip and a havalon(with extra blades) are the only knives in my pack. I would never use anything else
    I also carry a bench made bone collector Axis folder in my pocket.
    All of these hold a edge very well and sharpen easy.
    THe zip side of the flip and zip id very fast and does not clog up like lots of gut hooks do

    I'm very bad to lose knives, therefore, I don't buy expensive knives. I've had good luck with Gerbers. I carry several, a couple on my belt and one or two in my pack. They sharpen and hold an edge reasonably well. If I lose one, it's not the end of the world. I don't use a gut hook, though I may have to try one of those "Flip & Zip" deals.

    I was too. I learned to stop buying everything camo. If it is an accessory; radio, sharpener, knife, rangefinder, I want them to be neon colors. The havalons come in blaze orange. They are pretty tough to leave behind. If I could stop losing 2 or 3 beanies a year I'd be set.
