I like my buck alpha with the guthook.. folder yes, but handy in the field.

Fixed blades for butchering.

I carry an old fixed blade that my uncle passed on to me when I graduated college. It says Western USA on the blade. It holds an edge A LOT better than any of the other ones I used to carry from Wally World.

Once I get the deer out of the field though, ALL of the rest of my cutting (all the way to the freezer) is done with a Cold Steel filet knife.......once again.....because it holds a great edge and is easy to sharpen.

I just bought three new (used) knives off Ebay, for deer butchering. A boning knife, a skinning knife, and a breaking knife (for big cuts). These are all from Victorinox-Forschner, the choice of butchers. While in the field, I use a folding Buck knife with a gut hook.

I have my trusty Buck 110 folding knife with finger grips that my wife got me for my first hunting knife.

Both ~ Folder & Fixed

I got this Kershaw Leek for my birthday. I just happened to have it on me, when I took a mature doe last year. Instead of having to run into the house (and track mud all over the carpet), I decided to give it a whirl. It dressed the doe out effortlessly, like she was hot butter. I was so impressed with the Kershaw Leek, I also butchered the entire deer with it. It gets a thumbs-up from me!



The Kershaw Leek features: 3†440A high carbon stainless steel blade with dual thumb studs, ambidextrous Index Finger Opening extension and Speed-Safe assist, and 410 stainless steel handle, 4†closed, with bead blast finish, frame lock, blade safety (located at the butt end: slide button to free the blade tip), lanyard hole and end to end reversible pocket clip. Available in plain or part serrated edge. 3.1oz

I picked one of these up this year because, lets face it, a drop point is handier than a clip-point, at times. I can't wait to try 'er out...

Chairman, you took the words out of my mouth! I love my Kershaw Leek! I cleaned four deer with it last year, and had to sharpen it only once. The quick open feature is nice and it's low profile makes it nice to carry in your pocket as well.

I use a Gerber fixed blade....no guthooks here, I think they suck....lol. Guthooks cut too much hair loose from the hide. Use a good sharp knife, and cut from the inside of the hide, out, ya won't cut nearly as much hair loose!

Butchering, I use a pair of good sharp fillet knives!

I have a Buck Zipper but I don't use the zipper for the same reasons that fireman states. It cuts to much hair. If I buy another it will be the Buck Vanguard.
