    Hey all,

    I have recently decided to collect some smaller EDC blades but have also become interested in capers and similar blades. A while back I bought a cheap crowing rooster knife because it felt great in hand and the short blade seemed capable for various edc tasks.
    Since purchasing it other knives with large or normal handles and short blades have caught my eye. A few are the buck caper and ergo caper, havalons with the interchangeable blades and the churchkey. I'll post a few pics and continue to ad ones that I run across. If you think of a fixed or folder blade matching the above description please post a pic. I even tend to like things like knives with broken tips that have been re-ground to the above dimensions making them short blade/long handle...

    I've got some very efficient custom skinners/capers that handle their tasks exceedingly well (deer and elk). My favorites are made from CPM D2 that just keep on cuttin'.

    I also have been very impressed with my 'Havalon's' and if there's a sharper, lighter caper/skinner out there......I'm all ears. One blade per deer with some sharpness left to spare and 2 blades max on bull elk.

    Not the 'wow' factor that my customs have, but they will never fail you. Bigger isn't always better and these 'dainty' Havalon's certainly prove that. Buy a bunch of replacement blades (many to choose from) and you're set.
