Good hunting knives can make field dressing an easier task. This tool must be chosen with the type of hunting you do in mind as well as the size of the game you are hunting.
The most common designs have been around for many years and these can also be used as a good all around knife way you’re out hunting. You can choose to have either a dedicated hunting knife or one that can also be used for other tasks. Some of these knives will be open and have a sheath that can be placed on your body, although there are can all purpose hunting knives that are able to be folded. The style you choose is personal, any you should choose one that you will actually use.
The drop point knife has a large curved blade which is made from thicker steel then other knives. The entire blade of this knife is able to be used in assisting the skinning process of larger animals and it also can help to reduce the amount of meat that is lost during a field dressing. General cleaning can also be done with this knife as well as cutting into bone, although there are other tools no more suitable for those tasks.
A clip point is one of the most chosen blades because this can also performed general work duty as well. It is not as efficient as a drop point, but it does do the same work. This blade is thinner at the tip and the knife is not a stake.
Specialized knives can include the gut hook which can be placed on to the tip of any other knife. This cuts the abdomen open and maintains the meat’s integrity from toxins being released into the system. This is something that your experience and needs need to dictate on if it will be usable to you.
Skinning knives are dedicated and to the remove the animal hide, especially that of large game. This can also aid and the butchering of the animal and it can clean as effectively as other styles but it will not cut through the bone mass some of the larger knives can.
The game size and the time you spend hunting can determine the type of knife that you need. Buying a knife that does not suit your needs will often wind up being left behind and will not assist you when you bag your game.
