Great Knife

Date:October 19, 2013
I used to carry two knives while elk hunting, one for skinning/cutting through knee joints and the other for the rest. I clean animals the gutless method which saves lots of time and mess. Three years ago I bought this knife. I have been so impressed that I now only carry it. I have now used it on 12 elk. The gut blade allows me to do all the skin cuts without dulling the main blade. Elk hide expecially at the shoulders and neck dull knives fast. I do carry a diamond sharpener and use it 2-3 time to touch up the blades during the process. My friends are now sold and have since purchased their own. Not an expensive knife but does everything you need well. I have noticed that the steel doesn't pit like on my buck knifes. You can't go wrong.

Unlocking Zip Blade

Date:December 7, 2012
I've field dressed many deer with several different knives and I was so excited to use this for the first time. I was not impressed. I used it on only one deer to gut and de-bone the deer in the field (I was too far from the truck to drag it and am experienced at de-boning both deer and elk to hike them out without the extra weight of the bones), and now I'm taking it back.
1. The zipper blade would not stay in a locked position. Any slight pressure made this blade fold backward towards the regular blade (pinching my finger in the process). It might be just this particular one that is loose or something,but I don't see where I can tighten it, and I have not read about anyone else having this problem.
2. The knife did not stay sharp. It was a good size mule deer, but I expected the sharpness of the knife to last longer than it did. I sharpened it after gutting and taking off just two limbs of meat. For the price I wish the blade was made with stronger metal.
3. The blade chipped on a bone with little pressure. I was removing the head from the spine and was cutting between the vertebrae when I accidentally rotated the blade in the wrong direction and it bent the sharp edge of the blade. Again, the metal just isn't strong enough.
Pros: I like the size of the knife, as it makes field dressing very easy, without adding too much weight in my pack. I like the feel of the handle. I have big hands and it felt very comfortable for a small knife. Lastly, Cabela's is the only place for me to purchase my hunting equipment, because I know they will treat me fairly.

Nice knife

Date:December 20, 2011
Back in November 2011, I made a tripe to Kodiak Alaska where I spend a week hunting Sitka blacktail deer.While in Alaska, I butchered number of deer and I must tell I was very impressed with the performance of this knife. This knife is well made, easy to sharpen and I highly recommend it.

Does what it says

Date:April 9, 2010
I ordered the Flip-N-Zip Saw combo. These tools are great for the price. I used the Flip-N-Zip on my buck this year and it made gutting a breeze. The zipper made it very easy to open up the chest cavity without knicking anything else. I also used it to skin the head when readying for a european mount and it still seems sharp.
I had a little trouble with the saw. The teeth are so deep that it was tough to cut through the pelvic bone as it would keep hanging up. The end of it is still relatively pointed and easily poked through the bladder. Maybe my method was flawed though. I typically just use a hatchet to open up the pelvic bone for field dressing and am not used to using a saw.
If my review were based on the knife alone I'd give it 5 stars but the saw brings it down a little bit.
