Or is it too big and designed more for larger game?
Also, is it a good all around gutting/cleaning knife or more of just a skinning knife?

Curious to hear from those with experience. I’m considering purchasing this one with S90V...

It’s my main hunting knife albeit I’m an elk hunter first. It’s holds it edge well and has helped breakdown a few elk and mule deer. I carry it and a havalon in my pack. Havalon could bread down a deer if it had to but I like it for detailed work around ribs and caping. I’ll deal with the extra ounces on a knife in my pack to make the work easier. Every year I send it to benchmade to get it factory sharp again as I lack the skill set to sharpen knifes. This year probably not since I missed my elk or could not get a clear shot but that’s hunting lol.

I have that knife along with the Altitude and the Silicone handle smaller version with S30v ( I cannot remember the name)

I really like this knife and Love the S90v Steel, it holds an edge like crazy. It is A fairly big blade Compared to my other knives so it’s taking a little bit to get used to that extra length.

You will need a diamond system to sharpen it….whereas the S30v sharpens with good stones.
I use the Edge Pro diamond system…expensive but a once in a lifetime purchase.

That knife is probably overkill for just whitetails. Another cheaper option is that Ridge Belts S90 V skeletonized version.
