Select Buck Hunting Knives 40% off @ MidwayUSA, Free shipping on orders over $49 [midwayusa.com]

Some decent deals, if you need a hunting knife for the upcoming season. Buck does really beautiful work with 420HC stainless steel thanks to their BOS heat treatment.

Good luck and be safe out there.

Anyone have experience with the gut hook knife?

Edit: amazon reviews for non-git hook version says it dulls quickly. If I'm going to have to sharpen mid-dressing I'll probably just stick with my cheap, easy to sharpen knives

Probably holding out for a killer deal on a 119 (I know, there was a pretty decent one at walmmart a couple of months back), but some of these skeletals look pretty decent at that price.

Buck's 420HC knives are quite easy to sharpen. I carry a Work Sharp Guided Field Sharpener with me into the field to do so and it does the job well on every blade and every type of steel I own. Buck's 420HC blades have an excellent ratio of sharpening ease to length of time they will hold and edge, IMHO, and are very easy to sharpen to an excellent edge.

I read a lot of knife reviews and participate in a lot of online knife discussions. IMHO, way too many knife users don't know how to sharpen a knife if their life depended on it. Many also don't understand you need to occasionally oil a knife, or think stainless steel means they can cut lemons with it and leave it unwashed until later. So they head out into the woods on a camping trip and use their knives extensively without thinking they will ever need to sharpen them. I know folks who buy cheap knives and toss them when they get dull because they never learned to maintain their tools. And I know other folks who buy only premium steel and then pay someone else to sharpen it, so the edge has to last at least the entire trip.

Anyway, at these price, those are inexpensive, quality knives, without having to go too cheap. I'm not the biggest Buck Knives fan, I think some of their newer folder designs downright suck and their fit, finish, blade centering, action and especially the detent on them are unacceptable. It's a shame to see a great company putting out less than great products. But I like their fixed blades and back lock knives a lot.

Some of their newer flipper designs are good if you get a good copy. I've just seen too many that had a weak detent and the blade would open up in your pocket. And to get it to stop you had to tighten the pivot until it would no longer flip. The good news is that Buck has the lifetime warranty and quickly replaced the knife, so I trust Buck overall.
