    I guess no one else saw this as this article about one of Buck's new models appeared in the latest issuse of American Hunter.

    So, what do you think is the ultimate deer knife? DM

    It's probably a decent read for someone who is not very passionate about their knives. However, a person new to knives and deer hunting (field dressing, skinning/caping, meat processing/boning/slicing) would probably be more confused after reading this.

    Just wondered if anyone else had seen the article. Buck is trying to market a new model. DM

    It wouldn't be something I would buy David. I just can't force myself to get a knife with a gut hook.
    A lot of people like them though.

    I've built a few and after using them didn't build any more. But like you say some like them. DM

    Skyhorse, So, glad to see you on the Buck Forum. Hope all is well. DM

    I have found most gut hooks to be absolutely useless,most are made at the wrong angle needed to work properly,many just plug up with hair right off ,David Martin posted a pic of an old stag handled browning with a blunt tipped blade,something like that is excellent for feild dressing and skinning the initial cuts going up the legs before skinning deer out.I would also include the 110 alaskan guide as an ultimate deer knife,just not as ultimate as the d2 118.LOL

    Yes, I'll try a knife out on most anything that stays still long enough. I enjoy using the Selector 189. DM


    Aug 14, 2006

    In 1967 I bought a 102 woodsman. That knife took care of deer, as well as fish and small game lie nobodies business. I can't imagine a better all around knife than my old 102. Certainly not one with a gut hook. Never liked those things. If I ha to name the ultimate deer knife, my vote goes to the classic woodsman.

    Interesting,the one knife thats a classic that i've never even handled is a 102 woodsman,gonna be a roadtrip tomorrow now ya got my interest peeked,i've gotta have a woodsman.
