For deer, I've never found a better blade that the Whitetail Skinner from Outdoor Edge. I've been using this blade exclusively for deer since '97 and I love it!!! Now, you can carry a Rambo knife like some of these guys 'round here do, or you can carry an expertly sized tool for th task at hand. The gut hook opens 'em up like a zipper and the T-handle allows you to cut with a straight wrist which makes the task of reaching into a chest cavity MUCH safer.

I have honestly been thinking about using a flip out razor knife. My cousin used to have a browning knife that essentailly a razor in the shap of a knife and you could skin any animal in record time.

If you want a knife that will last you a lifetime and will hold an edge like no other, take a look at a Bob Dozier knife. His D2 steel is amazing. Try are pricy but worth every cent.

For gutting and skinning get some thing smallish and easy to handle. For butchering I use a set of Victornox butcher knives. I guess it all comes down to how much do you want to spend.

I like guthook knives for whitetails and have a Buck Zipper and original Marbles (pre-China) guthook that are excellent. Bark River makes a very good custom that is reasonable as well. I also have a custom knife by a fellow named Roger Shirley from Ohio (RDS Knives) that is outstanding. It depends upon how much you want to invest and how long you plan on keeping your new knife.
