I have a Buck Vanguard (fixed blade) that I've been using to process animals but I just don't feel like it's doing the job I need it to do. I feel it's too big to safely use when you're in the cavity of animal. Curious what others are using.

Havalon knives like the piranta edge or baracuta blaze are really hard to beat for the money.

I've got a K-Bar that I got when I was 7. Still holds an edge.

If I am feeling nostalgic I will use my wife's grandfather Old Timer. I have several Buck knives, all work well. This summer I bought a custom built Damascus blade at the Texas Trophy Hunter Show, I'm looking forward to using it this season.

Use a 35 year old sharade 3 inch fixed blade knife. I have recently purchased a knives of Alaska knife that is similar in size and shape, but just enjoy having that old scharade with me. I bet it's cleaned over 100 big game animals.

Have many knives that I have used over the years. Right now I am using an old knife I picked up in a antique store. No brand name but strong steel and holds a edge very well.

I seldom have to do it. I have 3 or 4 teens that hunt my land. On the occasions where I shoot a deer, I just tell them where it is and it's soon packed in a cooler. They all carry knives that I've cobbled together.

Knives of Alaska Light Hunter Combo is what I have in my bag, but have been looking for something new for an EDC knife. They hold a good edge and are easy to clean. The guthook is a really nice feature and it has been helping me with my tail splitting on my furs way more than I thought it would, just zips down them like butter.
