Didn't see the anti gut hook talk. My experience is just the opposite. I can gut a deer without it, but to just slip the gut hook in and unzip my deer is the easiest part of gutting now.
+1. I use an Old Timer with a gut hook and it unzips a deer hide really fast. The only thing I don't like about it is the handles get slick when they get bloody. I've had this one for about 20 years but they sell pretty cheap on ebay. I don't really like a folder for meat work. Too hard to clean compared to a fixed blade.
