I own 3 custom knives, The Jimmy Lile pictured in a thread below, an early Jerry Moen and an old Hundley.

I use none of them, keep them oiled and put in the safe.


I use the Outdoor Edge Pro, replaceable blades, Cheap, sharp as a razor. Will dress and skin several deer per blade. Used to use the Havalon Piranta (below) but blades are too thin.

Just wondering if anyone uses a $700 knife hard , in the field.

I use Havalons more often than not.
But I will use whatever is laying around the cleaning station and is handy. It doesn't take a fancy high dollar knife to gut and skin a deer.
But I do have a few custom knives that I have pulled out on occasion ($500 range), they are nice, and they do not get left at the cleaning station.

I just ordered a $500 + hand made knife from my co-worker and friend Luke Swenson - Swenson Knives (mainly slip joints)... I havent decided if I will use it... probably will as he is a good friend and I dont intend to sell it so why not put it through the paces... Ill hand it down to one of my kiddos. other than that most of my one of a kind type knives were no more than 130 and I use most of them to a degree.

I "use" the cheapest full size folding knife I have. When it gets sufficiently worn, I use/carry the next cheapest I have. But I have many of all different types (~25+). Mostly tactical types, some diving types, push knives, etc. I carry the one that is the lightest, which usually means plastic handles. That way I'm not afraid to abuse it, strip wire with it, and so forth.

The only truly hand made knife I have, is one that was hand made in France that my wife gave me. I keep it on display in my living room.

I couldn't imagine owning a tool I'm not willing to use, makes no sense

I have these two by MikeC. I carry the small one pretty much everyday and use it pretty much daily. The bigger one I carry when hunting and its skinned several deer and pigs. If not carrying one of those, I have 3 different Benchmade griptillions that I carry.
