I’m a pretty handy guy and I would like to sit around for hours and hone my knife sharpening skills, but I just don’t have time. I’m not throwing out my fixed blade skinning knife, but until the time comes that I can create a paper shaving edge and quickly recreate it, I am going to be using a replaceable blade knife like the Outdoor Edge Onyx-Lite.
Replaceable blade knives are becoming very popular among hunters for skinning and breaking down game. If you accidentally cut into the bone or just skinned out the hide an a tough boar hog, you don’t have to stop, clean up, and resharpen your blade. You can just pop in a brand new blade and get back to work.
