How To Choose The Right One: Some Tips

With all of the choices available, choosing the right hunting knife for you can seem like a daunting task. A lot will depend on what you plan to use it for, and what you like.

Blade Shapes

Clip Point – A clip point blade can be characterized as having a strain unsharpened back edge that runs to the midway point of the blade before it veers to the tip of the blade. This is designed to give you added accuracy because it allows you to place your thumb midway up the blade to apply exact pressure and angle to your cut. This type of blade is good for piercing and slicing with the main disadvantage being a point that is weaker and narrower than other blade shapes.
