Here is a picture of the two of them, both come with a razor sharp edge from the factory and hold them pretty good too

Buck Alpha...any fixed blade buck. No gut hook for skinning. For caping the Havalon is tough to beat.

Knives of Alaska for me. I'm amazed at how much I can do with my Cub Bear caper. The ergonomics are great and it holds an edge like you wouldn't believe. I wear it on my belt all season,regardless of where I'm huntng,and don't fell the least bit compromised.

Buck Vanguard with rubber handle, and, Cold Steel VG10 Bird & Trout, both in the "field dressing" stuff sack. Folding Buck 110 in the "survival" stuff sack. 6" filet knife, 6" boning knife, and a diamond steel at camp for final processing.

No gut hook, nothing fancy (Morseth 91M1-5) just sharp, strong & safe.

Wood gripped folding Buck, just a standard blade, shaving sharp, stainless. My 33 year old daughter bought for me when she was 10 years old, and I've used it ever since.

Re: Choice in Knives ?

Someone gave me an Outdoor Edge Flip N Blaze as a gift last year. At first I thought I might return it but the more I looked it over the better I liked it. Now it'd be the last knife I'd get rid of. It's extremely sharp, grips great, and I love the caping blade because you can sharpen it easily, which in my mind makes it better than the guthooks, which I have used and liked just fine. Haven't tried Havalon or Knives of Alaska but I see high praise for them on here. May just have to check them out.
