Hunting knives

As their name suggests, hunting knives are tools designed specifically for use in hunting and even survival situations. During a hunting trip or an adventure in the wilderness, this knife will have many uses: to sharpen arrows of your throwing weapon (crossbow or bow), to cut, but also to skin, bone, and prepare your catch.

But it is important to note that there are different types of hunting knives. Even experienced hunters sometimes find it difficult to make their choice. On Khurts, our store dedicated to cutlery, we are keen to offer you a variety of models, renowned for their reliability and performance.

Folding blade or fixed blade hunting knife?

Should you choose a folding blade or a fixed blade hunting knife? The thing to remember is that a folding blade is practical and compact. The knife becomes immediately less bulky, so it is easy to transport. But it is fragile because it can break if you don't regularly maintain its mechanism. On the other hand, the fixed blade hunting knife is resistant and much stronger. Because of its length, it is bulkier. For obvious safety reasons, it must also be put in a sheath to protect it.

What about the hunting dagger material and shape?

The material of the knife blade will depend on its strength and robustness. Stainless steel or carbon steel is commonly used for making daggers. Stainless steel retains its sharpness better over time, although it is less accurate than carbon steel. However, carbon steel blades have the disadvantage of rust and the need for regular sharpening. The folding hunting knives blades are made with titanium blades instead.

Clip point or drop point blade?

There are several shapes of hunting dagger. First, there is the clip point, meaning that the blade is long and its point is raised. In this category, we find the Bowie knife and the gutting knife. It is the ideal tool when you skin or cut up a game. Then there is the drop point blade that features a folded tip. Besides, there are also the blades with short, piercing blades for stabbing the heart of a game, the wide blades for skinning like Skimmer knives, or the serrated blades. It is more about feeling and use. Do not hesitate to test the knife to see if you like the model.

The handle: an important point?

The handles of the knife can also be made from bone, leather, wood, plastic... This is also a personal choice based on the preferences of each user. But besides this parameter, the handle greatly affects your ability to cut. The most important point is therefore to make sure it is comfortable to use and in the hand, especially in hunting conditions.

Hunting knives are nowadays more versatile to enhance the hunting experience for hobby hunters. So, you can purchase models with extra features, such as a fire starter, a bottle opener... Choose the features that will serve you so you don't go out of your budget. However, khurts.com offers hunting daggers and skinning knives in different price ranges to fit your budget.
