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.

Grohmann #1 Original, $120. My dad has a Russell Canadian Belt Knife but they aren't made anymore.  Cold steel also makes a copy of this knife that is a real ugly, but it will work just as well and $10 to $20.
