Folding Guthook?

Postby Sth Oz Dan » Tue Oct 16, 2012 6:34 am

I'm after some opinions here please.
I would really like a blade with a nice round tip for skinning, and a guthook on the top edge. But I don't really want to carry it in a pouch/bolster. I'd like a folding blade so I can put it in my pocket. These seem pretty rare from what I've seen so far.

-About the only one I've found so far, but not sure whether to believe it's 440C Stainless considering the other writing on the blade ;)

So does anybody know of one that would fit the bill?
Or a custom folding blade maker I could email?

Thanks in advance

I hadn't thought of a gut-hook folder, until you posted this question. Buck doesn't make a bad knife, IMO, they have the "Alpha" series, that has a couple folders in it, with the gut hook. I saw a guy carry one out of Scheels yesterday.

I am sure there are others out there too...

I've got the itch...I just don't have the scratch!

If is supposed to have a sharp edge, and doesn't...get a hold of me.

Thanks Larry.
I ended up spending hours surfing numerous knife seller's sites and eventually found a couple.
I was after one for the odd occassion where I may need to drop the gut from an animal to make it easy to carry out, and the folding blade just makes it easy to slip in my pocket - no bits hanging off my pants, just me and my .204 in my hands.
Anyway, I found a couple of cheapo 3-blade folders - saw (to get through brisket), guthook (separate skin down the belly/chest line), and small blade that would perform many tasks (bleeding, skinning, boning etc).
For the small price I paid for 2 different versions, I can see how this style performs in the field, then make the move to a high quality piece of art later.
May be a while before I can find out how they perform, but I'll try to remember to post the results

I have something very similar to what youre describing. I believe it was out of Browning's line up. 3 blade folder of saw, knife, and hook.

And have you found it to be effective?
One of the knifes I ordered was Winchester labelled, but made by someone else. The other - Elk Ridge.
I don't expect much out of them for the very cheap price, but they should give me an idea as to what direction to take if I order a custom blade
