If its just for field dressing, skinning, and quartering out get a Havalon. Replaceable scalpel sharp blades are gold.

I have become attached to Kershaw knives over the years. I have/had Case, Buck, Old Timer and a few others. Just like the way the Kershaw holds an edge.

I have a spyderco manix I got from a special tradtalk member. Carry it every day.solid blade. I would like to get one in cruwear just to try a different steel. I have a Kershaw skyline that I like a lot but it is just a knife you won't CRY if you lose it. For in my pack I would get a non folder that is light with a good profile like knives of Alaska elk hunter. Or something from white river knives. I like to make my own too

Ton of great folders out there...Cold Steel has some workhorses made in S35VN, that aren't that expensive. I personally wouldn't use a folder just because of the after gutting cleaning factor, but do a search of the web, huge variety of affordable folding knives.

Pretty sure Jon isn't looking to dress any game

For me EDC stuff has to be cheap enough to lose without crying. I've had Cold Steel and Kershaw, currently on a bit of a SOG trend but no folders (Kershaw still going strong).

What's the job? I like the Spyderco Native 5 LW for everything up until stuff a boning knife can do better. I favor moderately short drop points for reaching up in the chest cavity "blind" to remove the esophagus without leaving any of my digits....I hate the nickname "nubbins"!

Just EDC and general use, no skinning or gutting.

I just got a Benchmade Bugout to replace a Spyderco Paramilitary 2 that I lost. It weighs less than 2 ounces and I don't even know it's in my pocket. S30V steel. I really like it and for EDC I prefer it over the Spyderco.

I've been carrying a Benchmade mini Barrage with the Axis spring assist opening for about 8 or 9 years and I love it. The spring assist is fantastic. I can't carry full auto but the spring assist is really just as good.

Bench made make some awesome knives. Osbourne 940 is nice. A bit pricey though. I don’t know what size you are thinking, but maybe take a loot at OKC Rat2, or maybe Spyderco Dragonfly, Chaparral and Delica. A nice cheap folder is an Opinel. Lots of great choices.

I admire the knife in that pic you posted Metalanton, and the sheath.
