    Hey Mick, I agree the JD Smith would make a great B&T. Like the Chokwe, a razor knife. I could definitely go for a B&T in S110V

    I cleaned about 10 ducks and a few grouse with a pm2 this past year, actually worked quite well.

    ..back-locks aren't ideal for cleaning game. Put a compression lock on it and it would be perfect IMHO. I like to be able to easily rinse out the blood and bits of tissue/offal. Chokwe would be better.

    I bought one of these knives from A.G. Russell many years ago and absolutely love it for certain applications. The Blackie Collins-designed Thumb Bolt sheath is really handy. I'm more of a Trout kind-of guy than a hunter - but here's what I need out of this kind of knife:

    - Medium length, something between 2" and 3" blade is best for me.

    - Very narrow blade (from spine to edge)

    - Thin, rigid steel, not highly flexible like a lot of fishing/boning knives

    - Fixed blade with a handle you don't mind getting gunk on - you'll need to clean this one regularly

    - I prefer a synthetic sheath that can be easily cleaned. Leather can get really nasty if you put a dirty knife back in the holster.

    - FFG Plain edge. I like an acute point, but with just a hint of belly in the blade for fine caping.

    Hmmm. I'll probably think of some other nice-to-haves soon...
