To many hunters, one of the most important skills to learn before hunting solo or in the backcountry is how to field dress game without touching the guts. Below is Randy Newberg’s method using a Havalon skinning blade.


Included is Casey LaVere’s demonstration of a gutless field dressing, also using a Havalon knife. If the blade seems scalpel-sharp in the videos, it’s because these knives can be equipped with different blades, therefore preserving the touted “crazy sharpness” of the blade without requiring sharpening.

Hat tip to The Truth About Knives.
