    I'm curious to see what hunting knives you guys are using in Africa. Feel free to post a pics or two.

    Here's a few of mine for starters;

    San mai with black palm handles by Larry Withrow







    Whitetail antler handles by Allan Davis










    A small Nessmuk with amboyna handles by Larry Withrow






    One of my favorite design, Grohman Canadian belt knife.




    A knife I gave to a friend as a retirement gift (made by GL Drew)







    My pre-64 Puma White Hunter






    Blade with hamon and musk ox horn handles by Bill Akers

    + 1 on the Puma White Hunter. Whenever I finally get to Africa I have several White Hunters and two will go with me. One for me, and one as a gift for my PH.

    I've used it once for gutting and skinning a whitetail deer and found it too big and bulky but it's definitely a quality knife. I guess it was designed for bigger critters. I always carry a box cutter with me if I'm planning on keeping the cape.

    My all time favorite! It is older than I am, German hunting / belt knife. It may not be shiny and pretty, but it fits my hand, takes a beautiful edge, and gets the job done every time! For big jobs (pelvis, branches for blind) I prefer a lightweight folding pruning saw.

    I've never used a hunting knife in Africa. That's how the skinners earned their wages. I did take this John Foxwell made knife though.

    Well, I provided Alan with the musk ox horn he used for the handle so that reduced the cost considerably. All in all, I paid $210 USD which is not too bad in my opinion considering genuine DH Russell/Grohmann Canadian belt knives are sold for around $85 CAN and are of lower quality.

    I like them all, works of art. I really like the knives with the (frosted/tempered) cutting edge. Reminds me of the Japanese Katana's.

    My African hunting knife that just came in today. A Randall model 25 5 inch. I'll either take this or my Puma White Hunter.
