I have an old Buck 107 that seems to get used most but I have a 2 knife lockback set (1sheath) also made by Buck that I carry most days and have used more than once.

I've used custom knives of all kinds, but a Case Slimline Trapper works as well as anything knife wise. Use a hatchet for cutting off the head, tail, and feet.

4" or 3 1/4" Victorinox paring, straight blade. Less than 10 bucks.

Folding knife, any small stockman style from a reputable company is fine. Case knives are always great.

Medium stockman's work very well. I have a Mike Sanders skinner that I've had for a long time that works well. I think a bark river smaller lightweight fox river could do.

Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

Guess you can call me cheap, but my go-to knife for cleaning squirrels and bunnies is a 4" Rapala fillet knife. Good for skinning and deboning. Game shears then make quick work of cutting off the feet and head.

I believe smart it the word you are looking for. I could clean a squirrel with a flint.

Also used a Case slimline trapper for many years, and would first cut the feet and tails with an my old faithful sidecutters. Recent years went to a Kershaw Leek. Dandy knife, and love their Skyline also for a camping, deer hunting knife.
