In the "salt" thread, several hunters mentioned sharp knives. I've always carried sharpeners and used mostly folding knives.
I just recently hunted Barbary Sheep in New mexico and the guide used a Havel knife to do the skinning & caping. I was so impressed, I bought one.
The Havel knife has a replaceable scalpel blade of almost 3 inches. They were originally autopsy knives.
Does anyone have any experience (good or bad) using these knives on Alaskan game?
