Lets hear it!

I usually carry three.
Two spydercos and one gut-hook skinner (Buck).

The spydercos have a good serrated edge for bones and branches. Why two? I've lost a pocket knife here and there. If I loose the bigger blade, these sharpies could suffice in a pinch.

The Buck gut skinner is an old relic. Time for a new one.

Does anyone pack a butcher kit?

I've used a ton of knives but my current "main blade" is the Kershaw Alaskan Blade Trader. I like it because it's got a huge gut hook.

The key I have found in my limited experience is that no matter what knife you use, it's got to be sharp.

A couple of years ago I bought a COLD STEEL MASTER HUNTER. I'll never switch ! I't holds an edge like you wouldn't believe. I can field dress 5 deer before it needs sharpening. It has a rubberized handle ( won't slip with bloody hands ), with a hard plastic sheath. Besides a strap to hold it in the sheath, it also snaps in so that if the strap comes undone, the knife is still secure.
