This is essentially a scalpel. Very sharp and easily for surgical precision.
Field dressing a deer: very sharp and I found myself at first overly careful (rightly so) of holding and using the knife. It cut effortlessly through the first layer of hide/skin/fur. Because it was so sharp, I was able to easily control how deep into the fur vs fat layer vs muscle groups. It easily dislodged the rectal area as well as the diaphragm. Also it cut out the esophagus without much effort. I DID NOT use it to cut through the rib-cage. I instead used a heavier, sharp hunting knife, as I was worried the thin Havalon would break trying to cut through bony areas.
One of the things that a real surgeon, who was on the hunt with me advised me was not to use the point so much, but rather use the long, flat edge of the blade. Let the blade do the work, not the tip point.
Also used the same blade the next day to skin and butcher much of the deer. Very easy to use when skinning the deer. Useful for cutting through layers of fat and tendon. I used a boning knife to debone.
I tossed it in the dish washer when done, and it was clean and like new. This should not be your only hunting knife. But it is certainly going to be the sharpest knife in your bag.
Used 3 blades while quartering a full elk. Eliminated the need for a bone saw as I was able to get between the joints with the blade.
Be careful changing the blades and maybe practice before you do it with bloody fingers. I will probably change blades more often next time simply to get through it faster.
Picture shows elk with rear quarters removed.
Great knife at a great price!
The knives are lightweight and compact with a sturdy case (nylon type material) for carrying on your belt or pack. In the case are two pouches. One for the knife and one for the replaceable blades. My bolt knife came with 12 blades but only 8 or 9 of them fit in the blade pouch comfortably. I've not tried to replace the blade yet but they say you should not attempt it with your bare hands. After testing the blade I believe it. That is one sharp knife.
Fantastic knife for light cutting. I've one of these knives for the past two hunting seasons. Made cleaning and harvesting my animals a very easy chore.
Sold By - Vayue:
Unfortunately I end up losing them at the end of the season and purchased a replacement for last year. I just received the most recent one and the seller seems to have sent me a returned product. It wasn't in the original package nor did it have the spare blades as advertised. Also, the blade was used and dirty with the handle being packed with dried blood, fur and other biological matter. Looks like whomever used it before me barely rinsed it off before sending it back. Needless to say, I'm sending this one back and will purchase it elsewhere. I'm oddly angered about the fact that I received a used product that could potentially be hazardous in a different level. I have no way of knowing what kind of blood, hair and meat is in the knife. It could be human for all i know. This would look horrible for the seller and Amazon if its evidence in a crime and they've shipped it to me.

I likely will never use the belt sheath as it bulks up under a jacket and I have a bad habit of catching sheaths on door frames etc. Also, I don't find them comfortable when wearing a seat belt.
The sheath does seem a tad undersized to hold all 12 replacement blades plus the knife. I have found that I can fit 3 - 4 blades plus the knife in the sheath but that is a very snug fit. The sheath comfortably holds 12 blades without the knife.
The pocket clip on the knife is stiff and holds the knife firmly in the pocket of my jeans. Minimal risk of losing the knife when carried inside the pocket as it carries quite deep. The pocket clip only has one position which favors right handed carry and opening.
The knife also features a 3mm lanyard hole for a small paracord wrist loop which could be handy to prevent piercing one's foot if the knife is dropped. With the preponderance of weight on the blade end and it's holder I would expect this knife to land tip first.
For those counting grams in their pack: (Note: - my scale only resolves to the nearest gram)
45g - knife with blade attached
3g - weight of one blade in it's packaging
79g - knife with blade, sheath and 3 extra blades
63g - sheath with 12 blades in their packaging
For comparison, my Leatherman Wave multi-tool weighs:
247g - Wave tool only
73g - sheath only
Suggestions to improve this product:
1. The black inlay on the left side of the knife provides a nice grip, this knife could use a similar inlay on the opposite side to improve the grip when holding the knife like a pen which is necessary for some small, delicate cuts from time to time.
2. The top of the thumb stud would be much improved with a bit of knurling or other texturing to prevent thumb slippage. It's a natural spot to rest the thumb and guide the blade when in use.
That being said, the "knife" is just a holder for the disposable blades, and herein lies the reason for the three star rating:
- The whole thing is made of what feels like extremely cheap plastic. Given the price point I would definitely have expected higher quality.
- The design has tons of nooks and crannies, which makes it difficult to thoroughly clean it. For something that is going to be soaked in blood (and potentially even more unpleasant body fluids) every single time you use it this is a huge issue.
Now that I have it I will continue to use it, and the disposable blades are exactly what the doc ordered for both field dressing and butchering; however, I would be reluctant to buy again at this price point (either the price should come down or quality and design have to go up to justify the price).
