http://kershawknives...tails.php?id=19 I saw this on TV and was curious if anyone happens to have one.. I have a simular one I use in the kitchen with changeble blades. So was looking at this one for my hunting pack, it has a neat blade with the gut hook, saw blade and regular blade...

Not that particular one but I have several Kershaw knives. I have one I carry everywhere with a self opening feature. Very nice for one handed use. I'm pretty good at sharpening a knife too and these things keep a great edge.

I'll second that one John. I've carried carried a Kershaw Ken Onion folding self opener now for about 5 years and I wouldn't be without it. It takes a quick edge and holds it. It cleans fish, field dresses, skins, and cuts steak at BBQs, sometimes all in the same day! Best knife I've ever owned.Dan

I have the blade trader but it's not the Alaskan model and I like it.
If it flies it dies, If it runs its done, Hook'it, snag'it, gig'it, just kill itFire up the grill cause deer huntin ain't catch and releaseI dig hot chicks in camo bikini's with guns in their hands.

My buddy has that same one and loves it. I have used it and you would never know that the blades are interchangable.

CH, I saw that advertised on the OutDoor Channel -- let me know what you think when you get it. Was looking at something that was more copact to take to Wyoming this year (if I get drawn). As a side nte, I'm a huge Kershaw fan...they are extremely sharp out of the box and have skinned my bear and hogs with it.

That is where I saw it too! Then went to the website and it was priced at 69.99 thru Kershaw.. Was ordering a dash cover for hubbys truck today checked for knives and they had the exact same one for 39.99 LOL.. IM thrilled :signs1180lq: Glad to know its a good set :) I have a gerber set that I use in the kitchen that has blades that change out and I do like it, but its blades are not made for skinning and such. Cant wait to try it out, SPecially that hook. Showed on the commercial it would split a hide easy.. I sure hope so :)

Those gut hooks work great. You'll need to get a round diamond hone to keep it razor sharp. I've got one I really like and use it to sharpen all of my friends knives when I visit. It folds up and fits in your pocket. It surprises me the number of people that can't sharpen a knife. :signs1180lq:

Don't laugh I have people that expect it when I get there. I may have to break out my big diamond stones I bought last year and take a picture of them to show you. But don't tell my wife because those 8 inch stones were expensive! :signs1180lq:
