I am in Brazil right now to field test the bush knife while hog hunting. Hopefully we will get a few hogs and can test it skinning, again. If not then we will test it other ways anyway. This is the best game/field knife I have ever used and I am really looking forward to it. I have a couple of them I will loan the ranch hands and boss to get their feed back as well. I will keep you posted the next few days but am not sure if we Internet there as is very remote. Think jungle. I will record what their honest opinions are and post them.
