Looking to add to my knife collection a good hunting knife with gut hook. I have seen a few online, Benchmade, Buck and Gerber. Looking for any personal recommendations. Looking for something that holds a edge and can be used primarily for deer/hog dressing.
Yeah, thinking the Benchmade Saddle Mountain Skinner is the best value. Good design and holds a blade. Plus lifetime warranty and free sharpening for life. I have a Benchmade pocketknife that I am really impressed with.
Not a fan of a gut hook but here's a thought. I also carry a utility knife with roofing blades installed in it. I like a drop point on my knife and the roofing blades make excellent gut hooks and can be easily changed or replaced.
Yeah I have heard of others carrying a small pocket knife with a gut hook in addition to their regular skinning knife. Maybe the way to go. Now if I can only convince my wife to get me the Saddle Mountain for Christmas...
