Tools in the tool belt. As hunters, we’ve got many of these and, sometimes, too many I might add. One of the items that has remained an iconic tool for us, though, is our knives. As a kid, that was one of the first things I thought about when my dad brought me hunting. I got to carry a knife. I’ll admit it made me feel pretty big and mighty at the time and that knife is still in my collection. It sure isn’t as sharp as it used to be, but it’s still alive. Keeping our knives sharp in the field is essential for a quick and clean job once an animal is down. Doing so will not only cut the time down, but it’s also safer if you ask me. A blade that easily glides right through hide is less likely to slip from applying too much pressure. Basically, the knife should be doing the cutting, not us. How do we ensure that our knives stay sharp in the field, though? Of course, there is the option of replaceable blade knives, but these tend to break easily. There is also an element of danger when changing the blades and all of the gunk from processing is in there. Fortunately, we’ve got a few options.
