I was wondering. Thinking back fifty years to when I was a trainee gamekeeper I had a knife. It lasted me well. It was not expensive, at £2-10/- a week it could not be. Two and a half inch concave blade. It did everything from making snare pegs to dissecting red deer. Easy to keep sharp. No locking blade. Still got the stab would scar on my leg from peg making incorrectly. Tried to find one on the net but nothing comes close. Do we now fixate on if it is not expensive it is not good enough?
