Deer Hunting Knives
Deer hunting knives fall into 2 general categories, those that are going to be used for field dressing only and those that will also need to fill the role as skinning knife/butchering knife.
Deer hunting knives that are going to be used for field dressing only can generally be on the small side with a blade of 2-3 inches and a very defined sharp point. The blade need not be long as the hide of a deer is relatively thin and the deepest cut the knife will be required to make is cutting around the anus to finish the field dressing job. The field dressing deer hunting knife is best suited with the clip point blade, this blade style with its very sharp point aids in the starting of the field dressing process and allows the knife to make fine cuts in confined areas.
On the other hand the deer hunting knife that is going to be used for skinning and butchering should again be relatively small in size, but need a bit of belly in the blade design. For the all purpose deer hunting knife, the drop point blade design will really shine in skinning, and yet will be functional in field dressing.
Another consideration when selecting a deer hunting knife is to get one that is folding or fixed in style, really with today’s designs, it comes down to a personal preference.
