Great video. Thanks.
I had a good chuckle with this video as a reminder - cheap hunting knives can work.... I especially thought the $0.99 bait knife sharpened up for real cutting duty was something.... Apparently he really does (or did) use it as a serious hunting knife....
I guess I am not too far off this myself... I learned to cut fish with a cheap birch handle Rapala fillet knife. Then I got
my own when I was old enough.... I have been filleting fish for 30+ years with those cheap Rapala knives... I have cut thousands of fish with mine and it just keeps going.... I honestly never even knew there was any other type of fillet knife for probably 20 years....
How about you?
Great video. Thanks.

Great video. I have used the small Rapala filet knife for years and it just keeps on going. I used to have a Cold Steel Pendleton Lite Hunter but gave it to my son 2 years ago. It is a great inexpensive option. I’ve settled on the Buck Vangaurd for my hunting knife.
I bought a Browning knife set on clearance probably 12 years ago for $20 that still gets used every year. It came with a gut hook, skinner and saw.

I have gutted and cut up more deer than I can remember with my buck 110 folder, blade is pretty worn away from sharpening, but lately I have joined it with a mora knife. I have a few and at around 12 bucks each, I consider it a cheap knife, but well made.

Discounting that a knife CAN be a work of art.... A comfortable handle and a blade that will take and hold an edge. Anything more starts getting into ego more than what a knife is for.
I like it. I love it. Can't get enough of it.

I have used cheap knives and they work. Now a days I can afford to go middle ground and use ones that cost $50 to $100. Hold and edge better and I don't have to sharpen as often. I cut through the joints and cutting the tendons laying on the bone dulls the blade some. Better knives hold up longer. There is a American made Buck knife I use a lot. Got it at an RMEF banquet. Sharpens easy but dulls easy as well. Blade shape works great, it is considered a caper knife. https://www.buckknives.com/product/1...ife/0135FAM01/
Not the best steel but a great design. Peels and slices skin really nice. It only costs $25. I would pay a lot more if they'd use better grade steel.
Mora, a Swedish Co., makes some great knives for around $10.

I am a big fan of inexpensive Mora Companion knives,
and Cold Steel's version of the classic Canadian Belt knife,
for hunting and camp chores.
If I carried a $50+ knife into the woods, I know I'd lose it in a heartbeat.
I have a bunch of nice knives, love 'em all... but they stay safe at home.
