Good morning BF friends. I'm looking for a new hunting knife. I currently have been using the Survive!Knives GSO 4.1 and the LionSteel M4, both in M390, and the ESEE 4 in 1095. I need to know what I'm missing in my search. The #1 primary role is skinning big game animals with secondary use as a camp knife for meal prep, etc (relatively thin blade) Here's my criteria: 1. Made in U.S.A. or Europe 2. No Chinese, Japanese, or Taiwan. (I know the Taiwan Spydies are awesome and I own a few. But not for this). And yes, I hunted with a Buck 110 for 20 years but not anymore. No big box brands please. 3. Fixed blade only ( my hunting knives get bloody ALOT and folders work but are too hard to clean - think wash and go). 4. I prefer Supersteels only (yes I know they are doing great things with 440 but it will never hold the edge I need to get through skinning more than one animal without touch ups) 5. Under $300.00 budget but under $200 is a plus. 6. 4" or longer blade - but less than 5. (I've used the GSO 5 and 4.7 and the blades are too thick. The length is okay but the added thickness is not conducive to efficient skinning, and the added weight is tiresome. 7. Grippy when wet with water or blood. The G10 on the S!K's, unless bead blasted, is too slick. The olive wood on the M4 is too slick. I have man hands and work for a living. The grip will not be too "rough" for me. I need to have complete control over the blade with sweaty, bloody hands. I love the ESEE 4 but hate the 1095. I have zero interest in worrying about rust and it is 80% humidity here year round. I've used more oil on that ESEE than my guns. I think that's it. Thanks in advance for everyone's help. I'd appreciate any pics you might be able to add to your comments.
