F Dick knives are used in the industry everyday and I love my set. Great quality and holds a great edge.

i just picked up a gerber vital. Replaceable blades. It's small and always sharp. Blades seem easier to change than the havalon. Have yet to actually use it yet, hopefully this weekend!
New fish, looking for advice.

GrayBow there are a lot of guys that make great knives on this site. Look around to see if you can find someone in your area that makes knives. I did, got one that skinned a doe this weekend and one for the wife in the kitchen. it will last a lifetime.

Dexter Russel, pick your blade. The "utility" works great.

Outdoor Edge is a low cost solution. I have a set that was 50.00 that works pretty well.

I would recommend using the search feature and looking at the custom knives offered by members here. They are worth the extra money and last you a lifetime.

Cutco! I picked up one at a boat show I was working in Dallas a couple of years ago. Cleaned 14 deer 2 pigs and 2 turkeys before I had to have it resharpened. I got the double D, looks like a serrated blade but the drop downs are actually blade protectors to keep from dulling your blade when hitting bone. I have bought and used a lot of knives in my 30 plus years of hunting and cutco is all I will ever carry again. When its time to resharpen either find a rep in your area or mail it in and they resharpen for free. Thinking about getting the regular hunting blade so I can hit it with a sharpening stick if I need to.
