Hog Hunting Knives
When hunting wild hogs with dogs, often a knife is used to dispatch the hog instead of a firearm; a dedicated hog hunting knife is therefore a necessity in this style of hunting. So what makes a good hog hunting knife, several things:
Fixed Blade – Due to the relative chaos of dispatching a hog that is bayed by dogs, the hog hunting knife should be a fixed blade, this eliminated the risk of the lock failing and the hog hunting knife from closing on the users hand.
Large Bolster – The bolster is the part of the knife that is immediately in front of the handle and separates the blade from the handle. A large bolster is needed on a hog hunting knife for safety.
Sharp Defined Point – The killing strike in hog hunting with a knife is the severing of the arteries and veins in the neck of the hog. For this the best shape for the hog hunting knife is the clip point design.
Large – While the arteries of the neck are not all that deep, the blade of the hog hunting knife should be large enough to cause as large of a wound opening as possible, inflicting great blood loss.
While hog hunting with a knife is not for everyone, if you are going to give it a try, make sure that your hog hunting knife is up to the task.
