I really don't want something cheap, from Wallyworld. Excellent blade steel that holds up. I don't have a price range really, let's set the price at $120 max.

There is a MULTITUDE of F/D knives in that price range, many very good ones. My brother is the deer hunter of the family, and he swears by Muela. Case knives are very good as well, in my opinion. There are many custom knifemakers, typically beyond that price point but it's another option.

AG Russell has a very good selection, and they typically have nothing to do with junky stuff. You might check them out.

Yeah...you could talk about good blades from now til the sun burns out, and not get around to all of them.

Happy hunting!

The Buck Pathfinder (model # 105) is a medium sized, well made knife for well under $120. I have had mine for close to 30 years, and it still serves me well as a field dressing knife. Leather sheath, black cocobola handle,5 in. curved blade with a false edge, and a perfect balance point make it an easy to use knife that you could easily pass down to your grandkids.

+ 1 on the Buck 110 , I've had one for years but you also might want to look into a fixed blade with a non slip handle as things can and do get slick when doing the inside work. I have a Schrade with gut hook, holds an edge pretty good and have done 4 deer with out having to sharpen.

I have almost as many knives as I do guns.I love my Muela fixed blades,they are made in Spain using German stainless steel.They come razor sharp,and really keep a good edge.I can usually clean and skin 2-3 hogs before I need to resharpen them. Kershaw and Puma also make some great knives with excellent steel,I have several of them also.
Randy Porter is a member/vendor here,and makes some very nice custom knives at really great prices,go to the vendor list and give him a call to see what he might have made or tell him what you want and he can make a custom knife for you.There are a bunch of us that have his knives,they are very good knives!
