knives

other than Buck who makes a good hunting knife? I am looking for something with a SHARP blade, serated parts and possibly a hook. obviously something with a handle that will be less likely to slip when engorged in blood.

Blade length between 4-6 inches
Non Folding
To be used as a boot knife

bring on the suggestions

Re: knives

Gerber. Been a while since I checked with them but I have a great folding serrated, single edge from them. Thing is sharp and has taken all sorts of beatings. Nice rubberized grips. Very nice. Not sure they have non-folding but worth a look.....

Re: knives

All depends on how much you want to spend. Most true "hunting" knives are plain edged with no serration. If I were you I'd get a Benchmade...I own a chit load of them. They make two fantastic hunting knives 1) Model 190 retails for $105 and has a 3.9" blade. I have one I used for gutting deer and have used it 6 times without ever sharpening it. That thing is sweet. The other 2) Model 10500 RANT Bowie, it has a 3.95" blade and is deigned by Mel Pardue, it too holds an edge very well. It retails for like $60 I think. Neither are serrated but with the edge these two have you won't need it. I usually will carry a bone saw style blade for when I really need the serrated. Any of the high end knive companys have really nice blades and will most likely work for you. Now if money is no object pick up a Chris Reeve knife...oh they are so sweet. I have a Chris Reeve Green Beret with the 5.5" blade and it has to be one of the nicest knives I have ever used....very pricey however at $289.00 retail. The choices are endless..have fun and don't be affraid to spend a little extra on a quality knife.

Knives of Alaska

I got my dad one of these for deer hunting. They cut through deer pelvis like butter. Has a lifetime warranty too.

We got the "Brown Bear" combo by the way.

Re: knives

They're not fancy or high end, but I have always liked my Gerbers too.

Why not just a Ka Bar?

Re: knives

If you don't want to spend much more than you would on a Buck, I second the Gerber and Benchmade brands. As Dano implies, you can go hog-wild with your wallet to step up to very fine cutlery, but I don't think that's what you're looking for, right?

Re: knives

Hey Bake,
Do you forge or grind? I have a bowie style knife made by an old blacksmith, it is absolutely the best piece of steel I have ever seen.

I started out using old files....but now you can buy blanks about anywhere for grinding. Would love to try to forge sometime....
