    Favourite hunting knife. Show em off.

    Post a pic of favourite hunting knife and tell us a bit about why you like it etc.
    And I mean a practical hunting blade too gentlemen, not a 1 kilo lump of steel that you are going brawl gladiators with.
    Cheers Rhino

    Decent looking blade hailes, not many production blades made from file steel around

    Just ordered a Benchmade Crooked River folder - from their Hunt series - when it arrives I'll do a review - I think it will make a good camp/utility knife...always been a fan of drop points - and I love the look of this blade....

    I love this Lone Wolf drop point and caper combo

    simple, good edge, cool brand...

    the drop point holds a great edge and the curvature of the handle seems to work well ergonomically- not that I'm any expert- I've never used the caper cos the drop point does everything I want, I'm sure if I ever have the need for it it'll work well enough.... ;)

    Thanks Rhino

    Unfortunately they have just changed them on the new model, but I hear the steel is as good or better.

    interesting handle shape.
    My first thought was it looks all wrong, but thinking about it, I have a 20+ year old Stanley knife with a handle that is similar shape. It is actually really good to use, and I find I get good control and strong grip with the curved grip. I would get another one, but they no longer available.

    Rhino, do you know if you can use file steel as is for a blade? can you just and grind it, or does it need heat treatment after

    Right - 6" "original Bowie knife." Dad bought it when he was 10, gave it to me when I turned 10, was the start of my hunting life.
    Left - 6" Puma SGB with a staghorn handle. Mum bought it for me for my 21st in June last year.

    Fairly big knives, but they've both done everything from rabbits to deer.
