i guess i need to get myself a skinning knife. what are your thoughts on using a butcher knife like this one?
do you think the skinner knife would really work a lot better than a butcher knife with a curved edge? i ask because i have a $50 gift certificate to cabelas that i could use but they only have the butcher knife. thanks for help, by the way
