    What holds that pelvic bone together? Just a little gristle. Find that sweet spot, and the pelvic will open right up. I have done this with a pen knife. It's not hard at all.

    I have never used gloves, blood washes off, and it won't hurt you at all! :D

    Tell that to my uncle...... He got some kind of disease cause he had an open sore or cut himself while skinning one. I've heard of others catching something as well. Not that that makes me wear gloves, just sayin.....



    The SOG Seal Pup does a good job. Not the IDEAL skinning knife, but in general, it does awesome. It'll cut thier throat like the grand canyon: deep and wide..... So far, I love mine. Takes an edge easy enough and holds it relatively well.

    I'm assuming since you said it's for deer hunting you want it for field dressing abd skinning, not survival. Look around for a Buck alpha series. They come in straight or folding version with a 3" blade and with or without a guthook. They have a great feel, hold an edge well and the guthook is a dream to use.

    I have a Scharde (Old Timer) folding lock back hunter knife that I have used for the past 13 years. Believe that I bought it @ wally world and it came with a sheath. Never had an issue with it and still have/use it. Not expensive either, at least back then it wasn’t, not sure what they go for today.
