HUNTING KNIVES AND AXES

ONE of the most useful articles in the hunter’s, trapper’s, camper’s or prospector’s outfit is the sheath knife, and I am sorry to say there are some who condemn this very useful tool. I am inclined to think those who have no use for a sheath knife have never been fortunate enough to own a really good one, and a poor knife is an abomination, far worse than none at all.

The ordinary so-called hunting knife, such as many sportsmen carry, is of no use whatever in the work for which the hunting knife is intended.

This knife, if it may be called such, is always a cheap affair and poorly made. It is mostly blade, about one-third of which is point, is thick and heavy with a slender, poorly shaped handle and that very ornamental but useless and bothersome appendage—a guard.

Such a knife is of no account for dressing game, and certainly is worthless as a skinning knife. It will not even slice bread or bacon, the guard is always in the way and prevents the use of a deep sheath, the handle is too small and badly shaped to be held firmly, and as a rule, the temper is such that one must be continually using the sharpening stone.
