Hello!

I'm looking for knifes that's good for skinning. I've recently used a gift card to cabelas from www.mrtoken.com that worked okey but know all my money on that one is gone. So was wondering if it was worth buying another one to get some knifes on Cabelas or should i buy my knifes somewhere els?

Hello, I can recomend leatherman knives, they hold ablade for a long time and the're sharp; me and my mate were out snaring last night and he cut himself just by brushing past the knife!

Got a little 95p one from my local gun shop and it's just as good as my other more expensive knives, also if you loose it it doesn't mean you've lost your best £45 knife

skinning whilst the body is still warm is far easier and is possible without hardly using a knife at all.

Mora Clipper for around a tenner. Come in different colours, so less chance of losing the bright orange if you put it down somewhere, and they come razor sharp, with a scandi grind that's dead easy to re-sharpen if needs be.

I would definately recommend a knife from Riohog, I've had two skinning blades from him, and they are fantastic, they take a really good edge. You won't be disappointed

HAVALON PIRANTA!!!!

Imagine a surgical scalpal on steroids! Replacement blades (so no sharpening needed), 100% sterile (blades are kept individually in sealed packaging), bright orange so easy to find! Super easy to clean! Strong enough to cut through rhino hide...not a common task in the UK though haha.

 

If you get one, you'll love it!

 

One word of warning, they really are unbelievably sharp! I sliced off a couple of mm's off my index finger and didn't even realise until my finger was wet with blood. Be really careful with these beasts!
