What is your favorite Knives and tools for butchering?
« on: February 11, 2018, 07:12:21 PM »
  What is your favorite knives and tools for butchering? I so many knives that I have gotten over the years. Some I inherited from my father and some I have purchased. For field dressing I use Outdoor edge knives and for meat processing I use Victorinox knives.
  Sportsman show I purchased a new Victorinox 5" Beef Skinner. I will have to wait a couple months to use it when my son's hogs are ready to butcher. Can't wait to use it! If it is like my Victorinox 6" boning knife that stays sharp I will be a happy camper. Here is what it looks like.

Nothing like a Remington model 700xcr.

I love the little reddish handled Rapala filet knives you can buy for $6-7 for boning and cleaning up the meat. I always have a new one in my pack.

For field dressing, I either use my Wyoming skinning knife for skinning, or just use the Havalon Piranta.  For cutting meat off for de-boning I use the Havalon.  If early season and I might need to quarter for speed, I pack a heavy gerber knife to pop the socket (it's faster).

For butchering at home I use my fish filet knife.

Victorinox are the best industrial knives out there hands down!

Rainshadow's skinner, Carpsnipers Damascus Skinner  and the Outdoor Edge replaceable for all skinning now.  I have too many butchering knives for taking meat apart that I could hardly name them all.  I have way too may knives.  Of course, you can never have too many knives.  My wife thinks differently.

I have a couple Forshner boning knives that get the majority of the butchering work. I like 'em. Can anyone compare the Victorinox to Forshner?

For steaking I use a big Dexter Russell curved blade.

Victorinox IS Forshner

Forshner is the more economical stamped blades in their professional line

I am wanting to build up my butchering knives. For now I have a couple fillet knives and just got an old hickory butcher knife. Has anyone bought the Weston 10 piece set? It looks like a good deal. My biggest problem is sharpening and re sharpening knives

I went to a work sharp ken onion,  I've been butchering hogs and other critters.   I can't seem to get the hang of using a steel, but I'm getting better at it.

Field I've got old timer folding knife, and a Camulus skinning knife. Butchering I've got a game processing kit( can't think of the brand off the top of my head), I use the fillet knife in it most of the time.
