    We use our Outdoor Edge knives for processing, I think we have 3 sets.

    Could you please let me know what kind of steel on the top right knife?

    Those are nice! I've never used one with a Damascus blade, you must like them. How are they for maintaining can edge?

    Never leave home without it.

    I caped and quartered a moose with it once. True story.

This thing is awesome and people went crazy for it at the SHOT show. No better customer service than Benchmade, and made in Oregon.

    My every day carry knife is a Benchmade mini-Barrage with the G10 handle. It is a great knife with a perfect shape and size of the blade and handle. I also really like the spring-assist opening. Love the USA made knives.

    My hunting knives are two, a Schrade lock-blade knife ( USA made and looks just like the Buck 110) and a Ruana Steelhead model although I was just given a custom Ruana 5AD model that has special handles on it and some custom spine work on the blade. It is beautiful and I used it on my antelope hunt this last year. Ruana makes some nice stuff.

    I also have a Buck 110 that is an awesome knife, but I think everyone has one or two of these!

    The 3 in the pictures are my everyday cutters! Of course the folder is an Outdoor Edge from Eastman's, the smaller sheath knife is a custom skinner made by Mark Wahlster, Silverton, Or. that I had him make to my specification about 30 years ago. I use it on all my big game and it is a wonderful blade. The large 10" Bowie is one I wear on my gunbelt when I am cowboy shooting. I made it about 10 years ago. It's just for show, but I suppose it would work on maybe an elephant!

    Yep. Use mine on game. Have several now. Skinned and boned out two cow elk on one blade with just a few touch ups. It's my go to hunting knife. Got tired of Havalon blades breaking and then the adventure of trying to get the reminants off the handle.

    I have hundreds of knives but my old timer 60t is my go to.

    have yet to form an opinion on the quality of the outdoor edge knives but will say, they are sharp
