Knives of alaska damn sure live up to their rep on that score

The elk I have got the last 5 years have all been gutted and skinned with my knives. Also the Javelina. They have never let me down. I'll never use another store bought china knife.

I have never carried 4 knives while elk hunting. One good knife that can take and hold an edge is what I carry. The art of making custom knives is proven on the first downed moose.

I told a friend who I made a few knives for that I'd take a video of my next elk kill using some of my own knives. That's the reason for multiple knives. The reason I changed knives was to see how each one worked given it's size and shape.

The knife in this thread has a 2 1/2 inch blade. If you're going to gut and skin a moose with a 2 1/2 inch blade, I guess you win the "more of a man" contest. I'm more of a right tool for the right job kinda guy

I never said I used neck knives for anything.
