From time immemorial, hunting has been primarily a source of food. At the same time, various types of weapons, and even hunting knives, were actively used. But over time, it became more of a sport, as people learned to get food, or rather grow it, without resorting to killing wild animals. Today in Ukraine there is a fairly large community of hunters who annually go into nature in order to find an animal or bird.
Hunting can be fraught with dangers, especially if you have to look for a predator. But even when going after herbivores or birds, you must first be well prepared. One of the items that no hunter can imagine without is a knife. And not just a knife, but a special, hunting knife, which also differs from a tourist knife, just as a lighter differs from a box of matches.
What you need to know in order to buy a hunting knife
When planning to buy a hunting knife, you should first familiarize yourself with its features and how these features affect functionality. When choosing, the following characteristics are especially important:
- Blade material
- Blade shape.
The most important properties of a hunting knife depend on these parameters. They may have to cut, pierce, pierce, chop, and perform other types of tasks. Therefore, it is necessary that the blade be strong enough, sharp and resistant to corrosion. Equally important is flexibility, as well as the ability to maintain a sharp cutting edge for a long time. All this imposes some restrictions on the material.Very hard blades of hunting knives are often made from high carbon steel, which is not very corrosion resistant. But they can safely cut dense and hard materials, they do not become dull for a long time and can be sharpened to maximum sharpness.
However, a hard blade requires special care, since an oxide film easily remains on it. After use, a hunting knife must be wiped dry and stored in a dry place. Each blade shape has its pros and cons. But, when planning to buy a hunting knife, you should not forget that a straight blade will require more effort to do the job, and if you need to perform some neat actions, then it will be quite difficult to do this with a wide blade.
What should a good hunting knife be like?
Each hunter chooses a hunting knife in accordance with the tasks that will have to be solved with it. Today, manufacturers offer hunting knives with three main blade options:
- Drop point.
- Clip point.
A knife with a blade of the first type has a lowered spine line; sometimes its upper part is sharpened by about one third.
A large hunting knife with a second type blade is more versatile. With its help, you can do not only the usual tasks for a hunter, but also some household and utility work.
The skinner is a shortened but wide blade with a straight top edge. Its edge is not sharpened.
