Advice on hunters knife

Postby jamesb0551 » Sun Apr 19, 2015 7:52 pm

Hello Chaps

Looking for a knife that i can carry when out rabbiting.

So need to be
Practical for skinning/ gutting rabbits
easy to carry with a sheath, will go on a belt most likely
tough and sharp

Thinking that the elk ridge hunter should do the job

PS hello chaps its been awhile :D

Hi mate I'm great thanks are you well?

Yeah I've seen that one preferred the sheath of the elk ridge hunter tbh , plus I've got the elk ridge bowie which the quality I'd high.

Is it worth sending big.money on these knives seen hinting sights charging like £60 for branded knives surely a Knife is a knife?

Hi James,
Howsitgoing!
May I recommend the Schrade Drop Point Knife, I've had one for a while, (I'm a bit of a fan, so I may be biased lol),
the grip is excellent & 8Cr13Mov steel is tough enough for outdoor tasks, there are some YT vids of it being tested (under the title Schrade SCHF14)
I know it more expensive, but its good value for what you get.
Don't get me wrong, I like Elk Ridge, I'd just prefer to rely on a knife that will take some punishment before breaking,
Take it easy dude. :D
