Outdoor Edge SwingBlaze SwingBlade Drop Point Skinner/Big Game Gutting Knife
Best Big Game Knife I have Used in 30 Years
I purchased this Swingblade knife a couple of years ago, but did not submit a review until I had the chance to use it on several deer. Absolutely fantastic - the best deer field dressing knife I have used in more than 30 years. In the past I have used a Browning Big Game Knife, a Gerber, a Colorado blade, a Gator with a gut hook, two Buck knives and even a Case, along with a couple of other no-name knives. All worked OK, but none of them worked like the Swingblade. The gutting blade's unique design almost had me falling forward because it cut open the body cavity like a hot steak knife cutting through butter. Both blades were sharp as a razor right out of the box, and they are still sharp as scalpels after gutting and skinning 7 large deer over the last 3 years of deer hunting. I am returning to hunt deer this coming weekend, I expect to use it on another deer (or 2 if I am lucky#, and I will not touch up the blades until #if# they actually need it. Switching back and forth between the blades is absolutely simple, and the knife handle provides an really good grip, even if covered in blood. I will recommend this knife to all my friends #one of them already bought one after seeing how well it worked for me) and I gave these knives as Christmas presents to both of my sons. Try it - you will love it!

LOVE this knife!
I received this knife for Christmas this year and couldn't wait to use it. Before using it, I did notice that being a smaller woman with small hands, it's a little more difficult for me to push the button and swing the blade out, but after messing with it for a bit I've gotten the hang of it. I finally got to use it tonight and oh man...this thing is the sharpest knife I've ever had! I didn't gut the deer, I just skinned and quartered it, but the zipper blade when put in between the body and skin just went with ease! I barely had to put any pressure to do it! The main blade is a great size and sharp enough to help peel the skin away with ease. However.....after getting dirty and bloody, the blades aren't as easy to "swing". But no hair or meat or blood got stuck in between it since there was always a blade there, so the cleaning was a breeze! All in all, I am so happy with this knife, and my husband is super jealous I got it, haha. A must buy!
