Re: I always cut my fingers when I cut up my deer
Zkovach is right - dull knives are hard to control and will slip more easily than a sharp knife. And having the right knives for the job is important. I know there's ol' geezers who can whittle down a big buck with a scout's pocket knife, but who'd want to?
I've come to the conclusion that one ought to have a good general purpose hunting knife suitable for pig-sticking, bunghole removal and blooding; one good skinning knife; one good boning knife; and one good slicing/quartering knife; plus a hatchet or saw for the pelvis and sternum.
