Which Havalon blade

I am going to start cutting my own deer. Decided to get a Havalon knife. Which blade is better for deboning with a Baracuta knife: the hunting blade or the fillet blade?

When cutting deer, I use several different types of knives for different butchering procedures. Several different types of knives, and a good sharpner, may be what you need. A round beaver knife works good for removing fat, A short pointy knife for removing loins, A flexable fillet knife for removing silver skin, by putting the meat on the cutting board and running the blade against the board between the silver skin and flesh. A bone knife, where needed. I also use a butcher knife, sometimes for fat removal and other cutting. These make things easier, but a person can do it all with just one knife, if they want. Use what works best for you, it may be the fillet blade.

Thanks bpottorff. I have a folding buck knife I use to skin the deer. I also have a fixed blade knife that I found in woods that I use for small tasks. I am going to get the Havalon knife with the fillet blade.

I believe there are kits (I believe right word ) that you can buy to cut up deer and other animals, that have several knives and a sharpening thing to sharpen your knives . you can get almost anywhere that has a sporting goods department and some also have meat grinders and sausage casings . I believe you can try Walmart , I think I saw some there. good luck in your search and decision

I was just talking about what I use. A different person can use a whole different type of knife, and do just as good a job or better, as I can. Good luck, I hope you have a successful season and soon get to try what ever knife you choose.
