I'm not a knife "snob" and know very little about them. If you guys could help me find a knife to last me the rest of my life I'd greatly appreciate it. I have just a few criteria, if the mix is not possible please say so. It's purpose would be for gutting and skinning deer. I've been using a CRKT Russ Kommer Free Range 4.25" fixed blade until Friday when it broke cutting the rib cage. I want about a 4" fixed blade similar to what I have. The metal needs to keep and edge for 2-3 deer. My current knife needs sharpening after each deer. I'd like the metal to go all the way into the handle. The edge needs to have a decent curve so I can easily skin deer the way I do it. A gut hook would be nice touch Rust is not much of an issue since I tend to keep them clean and dry but I don't want one that goes out looking for rust. My cutting is done by holding it in numerous positions so finger grooves isn't needed, but I feel best with one that is more flat on the sides. I haven't really decided what my budget is yet. I have 2 of these CRKT's and an Outdoor Edge Swingblaze, each cost me about $50. If this one knife can replace all 3 and last me 15-20 years I would be willing to look into a higher price.
