Re: Quality Hunting Knives

I have tons of different knives, customs, fixed, folding etc etc. Several years ago I discovered CRKT knives and have been using them ever since. For way under $100 they are great knives. They cycle their models from year to year, my favorite is a 3" blade model similar to this one.

If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.

My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives

I also say check out the CRKT selection(s). I picked a used one up in Boise, ID for $30.00. Guy didn't know what he had and I scooped it up. Best knife I've ever owned by far..JohnnyK.

Re: Quality Hunting Knives

Three questions need to be answered. Do you want a knife made from stainless or high carbon steel? Do you want a custom or factory knife? Fixed blade or folder? Around the price you quoted I'd choose a Ray Kirk Medicine Blade. He's an ABS Mastersmith, the knife is hand forged 52100 and will do all you ask. Ray has a website I think called rakerknives, he's a fellow hunter and a true gentleman.

Re: Quality Hunting Knives

Grohmann is a good choice but I prefer their non stainless blades which can be special ordered. Good knife.

Runana makes knives not far from me and they are good knives. They will always be sought after and they aren't stratospherically expensive.

Mike Mann is a well known maker in my neck of the woods and his prices are in your range. I have his Nessemuk knife.

The Cliff Knife + Fishing Knives

Here is a nice piece for $119
C.T. Fischer Knives - Nessmuk-style Sheath Knife

Yes, you can tell I like traditional styles and love my Nesse's. I figure if it worked well 100 yrs or so ago, it'll still work well today. I don't this Fischer Nessemuk yet but I plan on ordering one in the future. His version is different than my other Nesse and I like his style. Still my Mike Mannn Nesse is a kick butt blade. I picked it up used for $69. Yea I got lucky for sure.
