Many hunters know the importance of a quality folding knife. The best folding knife will allow them to do a variety of things. If you think you don’t need a folding knife while hunting, think again. There are several reasons why it’s important to carry a folding knife while you are hunting.

It Can Remove Brush In A Pinch

While you probably do want some brush around you to conceal you when you are hunting, sometimes it can simply get in the way. Have you ever been trying to hide while you have one pesky branch sticking into your side? A serrated folding knife can easily cut that branch away without making hardly any noise. You’d be surprised at how easily a folding knife can cut through vines, brush and even medium sized sticks while you are trying to hunt.

It Can Skin Animals

Many hunters don’t want to take full carcasses home with them so they cut them up or skin them onsite. You don’t need large, bulky knives to do so. Your folding knife can be just what you need to get the job done. You would be amazed to see how easily it is to slice through animal meat right on the spot. You also don’t have to deal with having to carry around bulky knives on top of your prized kills. A folding knife can easily slip into your pocket and free your hands.

It Can Be The Only Utensil That You Need

Do you want to throw pieces of meat in a campfire and eat it right onsite? You don’t need a fork or spatula as your knife can pull double duty. Not only can you cut up the meat with it, but you can speed it and use it to flip the meat over in the fire. If you brought cans of food to you but forgot the can opener, you can also use your knife to pierce the inner rim of the can so you can open it. Your folding knife just might be the only utensil you need the next time you go hunting.

How To Select The Right Folding Knife For Your Hunting Needs

If you decide that you do want to use a folding knife the next time you go hunting, it’s important to choose the right one. First, pay attention to the handle. It should feel nice in your hand and it should be designed in a way to where you feel comfortable using it. A folding knife should be too big or too small for your hand. You should easily be able to grip it without it slipping out of your grasp. You also need to make sure that you can open it without any issues and that it can easily fit in your pocket. While hunting, you may find yourself in situations to where you need to access and use your knife quickly. You don’t want to be struggling to not only get it out of your pocket or to get the blade to open.
