best skinning and caping knifeContributors to this thread:
What is the best caping and skinning knife combo? It can best a custom knife maker also. Thanks
Not a custom but the best I have used is an old Buck bird knife. It has a nicely curved blade that comes to a very sharp point. Its great to do lips and ears and eyes with and when you need a sharp point in tight spots works for me.
God bless, Steve
Ask a taxidermist... most likely this is what they use.... i always have one in my pack. Ed F
Probably a havalon. It'll do it all, you can also change the style of blade, swap out a fresh blade for the face. I've seen taxidermist run those paring knives or exacto knives.
I have the Cabelas Alaskan Mini Alpha and really feel it does a great job for skinning and caping. Short stout rounded blade that retains its edge very well. It works for me.
