After a long day in the field and a great shot, you will need a good hunting knife to dress your game. Most hunting knives are great for basic field dressing, but not all knives are made equal. Top hunting knives have edges that stay sharp and a studded or textured grip to keep your hand from slipping. Folding knives, or buck knives, are compact and each knife has a safety clasp on it to ensure the blade does not spring open unless the locking mechanism is pulled. Many hunting knives also have one-handed locking mechanisms that allow you to open the knife with one hand when your other hand is occupied. Trusted brands like Scarpa and Garmont manufacture rugged hunting knives to help you get the dirty work done more efficiently.
