It is very important for every hunter to have that special knife that will meet all his requirements so he does not need to buy all sorts of knives for different requirements. This is very important especially if the hunting area is fairly isolated.
Some hunters require a knife with a rigid blade some four to five inch long, with a drop or clip point, which is versatile and light weight, and something that can do everything from gutting the downed animal to skinning and quartering. The knife should be one that does not need regular sharpening and when the time comes when it needs sharpening, its edges should be restored easily and quickly. Surprisingly, not many knives can meet these minimal requirements.
To be able to produce a top performing knife, it requires the finest grade materials that are laser cut and a skilled craftsman who will select the wood grain for its handle and temper it to maximize stress relief using efficient and time tested manufacturing methods, and has the strong knowledge of the industry that he serves. All these standards come from field experience.
