    What kind of skinning knife do you guys use? "Made in China" changed my mind !!

    Thinking about getting my BIL a skinning knife for Christmas. What do you guys like and use?

    Everywhere we go, we have seen these Outdoor Edge knives ... TV Outdoor Channel, Sportsman's Warehouse, and Cabelas. Do any of you guys own an Outdoor Edge knife? Here is one we see advertised so much ... not so sure of this design though ...
    Cabela's: Outdoor Edge SwingBlade™ Knife

    I have always been a fixed blade guy ... so, what do some of you guys use that have bought a knife in the past couple of years?

    I have an old Case stag handled SS skinner that I was given when a young teen. That was a long long time ago and it is still my favorite knife. It has no gimmicks or special features. It's sharp as a razor and holds its edge well. Have had to rebuild the sheath twice as the new ones just don't look right. I also have a Buck folding hunter that I've had over 25 years. It its also an excellent knife but the Case just has a lot of memories that go with it.

    Oops sorry, I now see the my response is irrelevant to your question. Still agree to a fixed blade knife.

    I use a Damascus blade knife for most all of my tough jobs. I really became a fan after using one on a nice sized black bear.

    I took a nice bear and had a Gerber bolt action knife I bought just for bear hunting. This knife is a switch blade operation- a saw blade and an all purpose blade. I used the saw to cut through the pelvis and that worked well. The all purpose blade sharpened up nice but didn't hold its edge. I sharpened the knife 12 times in the skinning. So for the next bear I got a Damascus blade. I skinned that bear quickly and efficiently and sharpened the blade once just to see if it made a difference.... it didn't really.

    So I recommend a Damascus blade for tough or tricky jobs. I own about 12 Damascus blades now and must admit some of them I bought just for the looks. They do hold an edge very well. And they do great work.... and they are good looking. I have also given about 10 of them as gifts.

    Here's a picture of my favorite-

    This year I had the Outdoor Edge Cody Caper 2 1/2" that RMEF gives with membership, it worked good.

    Also used the Leupold Promotional knife, it worked a little better at 4.5".

    Someday I'd like a nice one like Maudite, but I'd have a hard time sticking it the first time, it's just that pretty.

    Edit;

    I just reread the title, you were asking about SKINNING, that would reverse the 2 I used, for skinning the Outdoor Edge was better, and for gutting the Leuold was better...

    Look at the Marble and Puma line of knives. If I didn't use Randall Made Knives I would check those out myself. Good luck, I know it will mean a lot to him.

    I use a small, lightweight Bucklite. I got it the first year they came out and I've been using it ever since. It's a Bucklite 422, has a green handle and a camouflage nylon sheath.
