    Default Big folder or smaller fixed blade?

    which do you prefer to carry out there while you're hunting/camping?

    a big lock blade folder or a smaller fixed blade belt knife?
    lets say if they are both about the same size and weight..

    [not these shown samples,they are just for comparison/argument sake--there are many,many different makes out there in both concepts that will fit this catagory]


    both have their advantages and disadvantages,
    but which do you prefer?
    yes ,ultimately it propably will come down to personal preference ,but why this specific choice?

    I usually prefer a fixed blades as I think most folders are difficult to get totally clean and dry after gutting an animal.

    But I really like to bring this knife when out hunting. Sometimes together with a fixed blade.

    I don't hang it on my belt. I just have it in a pocket.
