Re: Quality Hunting Knives

Another vote for Ruana. I bought my first one at a gun show in Idaho 20 years ago and fell in love with it. Have aquired two more since. Hardest part is deciding which one to carry.
I have at least a dozen quality factory knives and a couple of other customs, but the Ruanas are what I reach for.
Outside of a dog a gun is mans best friend.
Inside a dog its too dark to shoot.

Handle a Ruana before you buy one to see whether you like it or not or make sure you can send it back for a refund. For my money they have an awful handle which is far too square and block-like.

Also check out the chris reeve mountaineer knives, the fehrman peacemaker, and fallkniven knives. All of these are excellent knives

Re: Quality Hunting Knives

What is wrong with a Buck 110? American made, great steel, holds an edge, under $40.

I have had one for years. My other favorite is an American made Gerber 600 folder. The only problem is it is tough to get a good edge on it. A Lansky kit fixed that problem. By far the best thing you can do for your knives is keep them sharp, it takes skill or mecanical help. I opt for the mechanical help.

One word KARBAR, just after WWII my father was fixing a eleverter at Goldberg's Sporting Goods here in Phily and saw some surplus items that just came in one of which was a box of USMC Karbar knifes asked how much and told one dollar each well he purchased a knife for each of his hunting buddies a totle of eight.
We are still using the very same knife today over 60 years later still holds it's edge very well
