Bahco Knife

I butchered and boned three fallow bucks today with this awesome little knife and it is going into my hunting gear.
It is razor sharp holds an awesome edge and is so light.
This knife cuts like a dream  http://youtu.be/6BJa04FhKIY

It is a quality knife for anyone on a budget.

I think they were $15 in Bunnings and even cheaper at George Henry Tools the other day.

Agree - awesome little things

No I have not had the time to modifiy it.  I have been flat out TB testing fallow deer I used it to butcher 3 more deer yesterday.
This knife cuts a brisket even on fallow.
So thats 6 heads removed 24 hocks cut off and 6 briskets, skinned all off the deer as well.  I have only had to pass it on a stone for 15 secs. 
I will modify only to put a slight drop point on it, if I was head skinning I would carry a second smaller knife but this knife would be adequate.
Keep your hand away from the little bugger it is a demon I can see where it will have your finger off.

Think Bahco is part of Sandvik
Its all they ever seem to use.
From Socket sets, Pliers, saws to Blades. Not all the same steel but still SANDVIK
This knife is 57-58 HRC
And yes its not the only great steel in the world but its pretty bloody descent

Bought it at Goldpine pretty much by accident when I picked up some deer posts.  I  literally just threw it in with the gudgeons and latchs etc etc.
