Used the Paranta this last fall on a couple Bull elk and a Whitetail buck. The blades are a little flimsy, but awesome for caping around the eyes, nose and lips. The biggest obsticle was spitting the hide up the back of the neck on the bulls and the blade was a bit too short for boning. That thick hide made that little knife work for it so I'll keep my second knife with me in the pack for sure.
