    Looking for a finely-pointed, ULTRA sharp blade for really getting all the tissue off smaller skulls. What do you use?

    an exacto knife would most likely work best. macerate the rest off or use beetles.

    Thanks guys! Think I may go with the scalpel. Any of you used the HAVALON knives?

    They work great, might be a little more spendy than other blades, but I really like them. At less than $0.40 a blade they are great. I use # 60 and mostly all I use them on is deer, elk, buff, and bears and only knife I generally carry when I hunt.
