a leatherman. Seriously, compact, easy to carry with a bone saw included plus whatever else you might need. The pliers come in handy just in case of accidental cactus encounters too.

I haven't hunted deer since I was a kid.

I really think the multi tool idea mentioned above is a good idea.

I would use some brake parts cleaner on the tool afterwards.

I have a pos gerber metalious I have been using for about 5 years. It holds an edge decent, has a rubber grips, and a good skinning contour. I think it cost me $35, so I don't care what happens to it.

Two actually.
My 1985 purchased Buck 110 folder for gutting and quartering.
My old American made Schrade fixed blade Sharp Finger for skinning.

If I had to choose just one it would be the Buck 110 folder.

I could see this knife as being serious potential.
What blade steel does it use??

I have an old Gerber bolt action I think is what it is called. I prefer a folder over a fixed bladed knife.

Mora.

Cheap and super sharp.

If I lose it I'm out 9 bucks.

There are many good choices. Some of my favorites are the Schrade Sharpfinger, Gerber Gator with the clip point, and the Green River Hunter.
Link Posted: 9/20/2013 5:13:09 PM EST
I've got a gerber something or another. Fixed blade, rubber handle, not too many nooks and crannies to hold guts n blood.

Stays sharp as a mofo.

Dressed and boned out a whole lotta deer with one of these:



My next one will probably be a bit lighter and a fixed blade, though.

I've never liked gutting deer with a folder, pain in the ass to get all the little chunks out of if when you get home.

I lost one of those in my army days years age, brought back memories.

Mine came with a spare saw blade that rode in a second pocket in the sheath, I still have the sheath and second blade, but no knife

I have the camo version. I've gutted a few using a Bucklite also.

Blade looks unused. Sheath not so much. Very nice piece!

I have the Gerber Profile Fixed Gut Hook. It sharpens up real nice and also cut the tip of my thumb off during a paper slicing demonstration for my buddies!

Huh! Just ordered this 2 days ago... I'm keeping my thumb tips attached though!

ETA: Been debating on whether to get a separate fillet style to go along with it - anybody else use two knife types while field dressing?

That's the one I have sans the gut hook.

Maybe I should elevate the Randalls from safe queen to working knife status.

Buck Woodsman 4" fixed blade. Just because my brother gave it to me when I started hunting as a kid and that's what I use.

Cold Steele Pendleton Lite. Great handing little knife. Easy to sharpen and holds an edge. Low cost makes them great gifts.

Izula 2 is a tad better with the 1/2" longer handle.

I've used a lot of knives over the years. Everything from high end customs to cheap folders.

This year I tried ones of these from Outdoor Edge and it's awesome.
