I have a Kershaw that I have had for 30+ years. Holds an edge very well


I may not be smart but I can lift heavy objects

I have a shotgun so I have no need for a 30-06.....

Still a fan of Westinghouse Micarta. Can’t wait to get this bloody this season.

Always been a Buck #102 Woodsman.

But last Christmas, my wife gave me my first custom, a drop point hunter by Seth Borries of Southern Longbeards. Guess I ought to give it a try this season.

When I was a kid I had a Buck Woodsman, but as I got older my hands got too large for the handle, so I moved to a Pathfinder.

My Buck 110, and my dads Case XX. Don’t need more than that.

Last couple years it’s been a Marbles Fieldcraft(the one on the left). The convex grind on these has no equal IMO…scary sharp!!! and hold an edge very well. These have the 52100 steel.

I've used a variety over the years.
[Linked Image from imgur.com]
In the early days I used the Old Timer folder my wife bought me before we were married 47 years ago. Then the Sharp finger got some use for awhile. For a few years I used a pair of Buck 450 Vantage? folders. Been planning on using the Mora ever since a coworker gave it to me after finding it in his yard one morning. Never had a sheath for it so always seemed to pass it up for others.
The last decade or so I've been using custom knives more often. Dozier Yukon Pro D2, Gene Ingram #1 S30V, another Ingram Light Hunter also S30V, and a Mike Miller Light Hunter in I think ATS-34.
Well looks like my picture posting is busted.

Very nice!

For the last few years I have found that an Outdoor Edge Swingblade does most of what I need but there’s also a Remington Big Game multiblade folder that rides along for the saw blade. Nothing so fancy as most apparently.

I like those two. Looks like a very well designed pair for use as a field knife. The bottom one would serve better for skinning

I agree. I particularly like the Old Timer and Mora. It's too bad the Old Timers have been offshored.

HA! It was actually that 47+ year old Old Timer that grabbed me. I have my Dad's 55 year old Case variant of the same:

Thanks. I spent several iterations with Phil getting those perfect. Wish the pic was better...that bottom one is as good a drop point/skinner Herron style semi-skinner I've ever used but it doesn't come across in the angle.
