Best Hunting Knives: 7 New Fixed-Blade Sheath Knives Tested and Reviewed

January 24, 2014 Tweet By The Editors This 4-inch drop-point knife from SOG was one of the most innovative products of SHOT Show. It has a stainless steel blade and an injection-molded handle. The most intriguing feature is the six LED lights that give you 90 minutes of burn time. If you’ve ever found your deer after dark just as your headlamp batteries were dying, you’ll fully appreciate the intelligent design of the SOG Bladelight Hunt. http://ak.c.ooyala.com/cwaTlkazrfaB4gIgJU29UHXxtU0zz25p/QCdjB5HwFOTaWQ8X4xMDoxOjA4MTsiGN

Flavio worked with CRKT on the new Carajas, a flipper knife with black textured G10 scales that clasp a threaded backspacer for extra palm grip. A 3.12-inch blade of 12C27 Sandvik steela hard alloy that pushes 58-61 Rockwell readingsis cut into an everyday clip blade profile. The Carajas comes in both straight and half-serrated models, and Im intrigued with CRKTs new Veff flat-top serrations, in which the serrated teeth sport tips beveled flat. CRKT posits that the new design makes for a smoother cut through cordage as there are no pointed teeth to hang up in the material being sliced. I use a half-serrated blade while duck hunting to cut reeds and cattails for on-the-fly blinds.

Finally, it has to be easy to handle in the dark, cold, or pouring rain, and when its covered in blood while Im elbows-deep in a caribou carcass.
