Re: Choice in Knives ?

Theres a reason this is knife of the year. I bought one and I'm addicted to how well this knife works.

    One more for the Havalon Piranta. Carry that plus any other decent folder for use around bones or when prying needs to be done. The folding knife will stay sharp forever if you use the Havalon for cutting hide, skinning, gutting and slicing and only use the folder for heavy when the blade is going to get torqued. My second knife varies, but recently have been carrying a CRKT folder made of AUS 8 steel.

    good point quiethunter about packing a folder. I have a Kershaw folder that I always carry and it makes a good addition to the Havalon.

    No gut hook. Buck for field dressing and skinning. Havalon for caping the head. The two work wonderful together.

    I keep it simple I have a benchmade griptilian I believe that's how you spell it. A case hunter folder and a case xx hammerhead. They all keep great edges and are super easy to sharpen.

    Knives of Alaska Elk Hunter and a fillet knife. KoA knife stays sharp, went though an elk and a deer before it needed sharpened.

    Bought 2 of those Havalons last year for Chirstmas presents but didn't get one for myself, been meaning to.
