    I am trying to decide which one would work better as a deer skinner and small survival knife. Pics help. Thanks

    elof_alv,
    Of those knives, which is most comfortable? Which is your favorite? I'd guess that CS RS from is condition... do you prefer the RS to the R4? R4 or 411? Are my question becoming annoying? :p

    It is just hard to use all the knives I've got... CS RS was a natural user to me, blade is not as thick as standard RS, a neat slicer. R4 and 411 feel very similar, R4 is slightly heavier but very well balanced, shares this with 411. I'm really looking forward to using the Vex...
    My current fav user Busse/Kin non chopper at the moment is Hog Muk, CS RS is a close second

    I dont hunt, but its my understanding that choils get in the way of skinning. Think about that when you choose.
