I carry a Victorinox mechanic in my pocket and use it almost daily. It has a couple blades, can opener, sewing awl, screw drivers, and most importantly needle nose pliers. I use the pliers all the time. They are not as big as a multitool pliers but it all fits in my pocket. Works great for getting hooks out of fish too. When I go hunting I also take a US Navy Mark III Tactical Knife. It is one of the most solid knives I've ever held. The sheeth is a hard tacticle plastic. The handle is metal. It is heavy and truly a robust weapon. My uncle gave it to me. He had gotten from a SEAL buddy. I could bang a rock on it and use it as an Ax if I had to.For skinning I have a folding knife I got from a fur catalogue. It works pretty good. I use it only for skinning. I can't remember the brand but it works pretty good.
