cooncrazy, I like 'em...lol
One thing about knives, everyone has their favorite. You have to learn how to use the one you own. Or what feels comfortable in your hands.
Some problems fleshing is the beam or how the beam is set up. But guys blame the flesh'n knife.
I see folks ask questions on, what the best this or what's the best that. I can tell you what my favorite boots are, but they may not be right for you.
Years back, a friend gave me a homemade flesh'n knife. A wide blade beauty. I just couldn't get the hang of it. May have been the handle or handle position or the straight blade, but I would nick every other hide.
I gave this knife to a friend which gave it to his nephew. His nephew loves it and uses to this day. He learn to flesh with this knife, is comfortable with it. Main thing, he first learn to flesh with this knife. Maybe if his nephew would change to a Necker or Caribou, he would nick hides?
