I'm pretty much a noob when it comes to knives, don't know a whole lot about them other than the basic styles. I've been looking for a knife that I can carry on my person every day without looking like Rambo (maybe a 3-4"?), preferably one that is fixed blade so that I don't have to worry about junk getting into it when I skin stuff, etc. Would be making a sheath for it that would lay it down along the belt line if possible, if not then whatever works.

I generally use knives to skin, cut ropes, strings on hay bales, etc. nothing too heavy duty aside from the skinning and even then I don't do it on a daily basis. I know there's quite a few artisans on here that know much more about it that might be able to recommend me something nice, whether or not it's theirs'.

Thanks in advance!

Most of us knifemakers make a knife like you describe. Myself, Chops, Mike, Andrew Griggs come to mind off the top of my head as folks who are active in this forum.

What do you get on that style of knife with a vertical sheath? I might be interested in one.

Carrying a fixed blade everyday always makes you look like rambo.

That's why I wanted to try and get it to work with a sideways sheath.

Here are the two MikeC made for me. I carry the smaller one every day. I use it a lot for general stuff. I haven't skinned anything with it. I'm sure I could in a pinch but I bought the bigger one for that job.

here is a small knife made for me by randallss7 a knife maker on our forum and lives in Oklahoma, great quality work. you can never go wrong with Mike C./Andrew Griggs/Chops/Mr. Fisk- I have knives from all of them.




The knife above was made to match my Ruger 45

If pancho starts making knives again try him. Admire Randall and Mike C but don't have experience with their knives. I've bought knives from 7 or 8 makers on here and panchos are the sharpest and hold great edges.
