If a fellow had to field-dress five or six deer a day...which or what kind of knife should he get? Something that keeps its edge a long time or just a cheap knife and a good sharpening system?

Are the expensive knives worth the money or not?

I need to know....working as a deer guide this fall. Thanks

It most definitely is worth it if you are going to be doing that many. I guide as well and good knives just make it easier. I like the kodi pack from cabellas you get it all, the knives hold a great edge and it doesn't break the bank. Hope that helps.

Kenny,
There's a knife that's hit the market over the last couple of years called the Do-All OUtdoors Buck Buster. It has a forked design with a gut hook and 2 cutting edges. It's makes busting the rib-cage and pelvic bones a breeze.

I deleted the picture of it from my files, but you can look up the thread in this forum called "Can anyone suggest a fairly high quality field dressing knife?" and take a look at the pics I posted of my knives. The buck buster is pictured there. It's a knife well worth having in your pack!! :cool:

I can honestly say that I still use an old "Sharp" brand that I bought at K-Mart when I was about 14yrs. old, almost 17yrs. ago. It has been through a herd of deer, and I re-sharpen it after each one. I did use it on 4 deer one night a few years ago when I got the opportunity to do some farm destruction for a local farmer though, and it busts pelvic bones as good today as it ever has. This year though, I will take it a little easier on the knife as I bought a little saw for those pelvic bones. The edge is very important, even the most expensive knife is worthless if it's edge is bad.
