I need to find some good skinning knifes. I got some from the web claiming to be the best.....wrong. Cheap and wont sharpen. Any suggestions?

Bill, I used to use only the perfect knife from WASCO in my shop. However, I am not the best at sharpening knives,and I couldn't get it as sharp as I needed to. I still use that knife, for certain tasks . What I have found that a scalple never gives me problems and is always sharp. Research Manakins sells scalple blades I believe for $16. for 100 and I have a deluxe handle to make it a little easier to hold. works for me. Good Luck

Best knife I've found in 30 some years

is calles a *Victorinox or Victorinix, I think maybe research sells them, I buy 20 at a time ever 5 years or so at the sportmans show. It has a 3 inch "bird beak" blade and I love it, sharpens fast and holds an edge, made in Sweden. I'll check the catalogs and get back to you

I also use the Victorinox knives, I like the "little Vic" paring knife for most of my skinning. Try they are the cheapest that I have found and carry a wide variety of very good quality knives at a reasonable price. Get their catalog.

one in the same

I thnk that the perfect knife and the victronox knife are the same type. works if your good at sharpening. It gets kind of tiresome when I have to call my dad to sharpen my knives..LOL

sells one called Chicago Cutlery, paring knife for five bucks. Super sharp, easy to sharpen, and just the right size for all types of work. Inexpensive, but effective.
