I always carry 3 Z-blades in my pack. (1 for me, 2 for the friends). I only needed 1 to skin-out 3 elk last year. They stay sharp, but I have noticed that the blade is not long enough to get the reem job done.
Thanks guys! Well, the Z-blade seems to be light enough to carry one, but I like the Piranta's ability to replace the blades...and it can be folded for safety...I guess they are cheap enough to give them a try.
I just use surgical blades that I get from lab or school. Very sharp and lasts a long time. In fact you can order them online, fairly cheap and replaceable. They kind of look like the knives posted above but with a more drop-point blade look. Like everyone else said, its great for skinning.
SWEET!!!! THANKYOU BOYS last weekend up a tejon I was watchin a guy skin a pig with one and I was sold just could not find one on line......needless to say I just ordered the stanless one with replacment blades and the carring case, it will be a good lil knife in the pack the year!!!
