You can’t beat Buck’s 420 hc steel for ease of sharpening and edge retention. This is my trusty old Bucklite that I bought back in 1980 something. Gutted and skinned a ton of deer with that knife. The sheath originally had a Velcro closure but it wore out so I put a metal snap on it. I have other knives but this one is always on my belt in Archery Season.I keep a Case folding knife I got for my 16th b-day in one pack and a Buck 110 folding in my other pack. I find the Buck knife to be a great value. Was shaving sharp right out of the box, sharpens up easily, and not so expensive that you’ll cry if you lose it. It would ruin the appearance but a strip of orange duct tape on both sides of the handle would make it a lot harder to misplace while cleaning a deer.
