Outdoor Edge SwingBlaze SwingBlade Drop Point Skinner/Big Game Gutting Knife
Great Knife Great Price
I purchased this knife last season and I have used it to gut/skin 3 animals so far. It is just as sharp today as the day it showed up. The gutting blade is safer and works better than a skinning blade or gut hook...it is virtually impossible to puncture the stomach if used properly. Seems to be a good quality knife for the lower price. I look forward to using it this season.

One of the first things I look for in my outdoor gear is where it's made. When I first saw this knife on the shelf, USA was stamped on the blade so it went on my wish list. Mine arrived yesterday in the mail but Outdoor Edge apparently moved their mfr ops to China. Disappointed, especially since the cost doesn't reflect OE's move east.
OK, that said, fit and finish is good, good ergs on non-slip handle, action is smooth, lock is positive and the edges are sharp. Holds good edge. This is a well designed knife that does an excellent job opening the deer cleanly and safely, works as advertised but in the future, and this is a personal decision, I'll stick with Buck on principle alone. Really good product, am just disappointed that it's not made in USA.

Best knife ever!
I have owned 4 of these and have given every one of them away to two friends, and two guides. The last guy almost cried when I gave it to him. The design was created by someone who hunts a lot. Last fall I guided an antelope hunt, and caped and field butchered his buck with this one knife. Use this knife with care it is the sharpest knife out of the box I have ever bought.
