    My favorite hunting knife is my BlackJack Model 125 Heavy Hunter, it is my go to for big game. For small game I like the bird and trout type knives like my Hess Whitetail. Sometimes I use a pocketknife (a Case trapper or Buck 110 usually) but I hate cleaning them up.

    This is a small hunter or EDC with a 3" AEB-L blade and 4" elk antler and stacked leather handle that I finished up the other day. Light weight and even small enough to be a pocket carry knife.

    If that was a left handed sheath it would be absolutely perfect.

    I have several, as I constantly want to try something new. These customs all work very well.

    TRIO of really nice ones there. I'd love to try out many of his high hardness steels.

    Big, Luong's heat treatment really does work. I've used the BluntCut hard, whacking bone and cutting boards with no thought to the edge. Skinned and cleaned a half dozen deer with it and it's still scary sharp. It may literally be years before it needs sharpening, or even stropping.

    These are what I carry hunting moose. Bark River Mountain Man 5" and a Buck 110. I will have a utility knife with a hook blade for the opening cuts as well. I really appreciate the longer blade for moose. For those never having done one, I am up to the hilt removing a back strap.

    I bought an LT Wright frontier valley in a2 on a whim for an additional option this deer season. After using it on its first deer it was on my hip every time I hunted. Just a very handy little knife. I did have to reprofile it though as it came rather thick behind the edge from the factory.
