 :)I just got two new Havalons, the long blade knife and the combo knife that can use both size blades. Not done testing them out yet but they are not as sharp as I expected. My Kabar carbon steel knife is sharper and my Case pocket knife.

Havalon with extra blades in the pouch it comes with.  I have broke down at least 6 elk with that knife.

I used a Havalon Piranta last year in the field and was pretty impressed. For butchering at home I like a Fiskars filet knife. Great for silver skin/tendons.

I have three knives from Rainshadow1 on here.  Two of the Budget blades and one Damascus knife that is my favorite knife!

Havalons and Outdoor Edge are great for patient people. Skill is optional but patience is necessary for them  :twocents:

I've never been a big knife guy, anything that fits decently in the hand, isn't heavy and holds an edge is my only criteria. Holding an edge being my biggest interest

I love my havalon for skinning, but I used a buck 103 before that and it is a great knife.  Buck 103 is on my list to get but my 110 is pretty much the same blade.

Ok I got a knife fellas and I was able to use it already two times! I picked up the Havalon Titan pro and it has worked wonderfully! I harvested a bear this last week shortly after my post and yesterday my hunting partner got his first ever mountain cat!!! Not sure how to post pics from my phone otherwise I would.

I bought the Outdoor Edge Razor Pro a few years ago with the guthook on it also. The extra blades for the knife itself come in handy if needed but I haven't had to change one out in the middle of a skinning or boning session yet. I keep the blades and can resharpen them for another go round. I have the Havalon also but it basically a backup now. I've probably done 4 elk and as many deer without any problems.

Have not used one in the field but I bought my brother a Benchmade Steep Country as a gift and was impressed with its feel/balance.
