    I would recommend just buying what you need from here:
    http://www.scobiesdirect.com/
    Order over 50 and get free delivery!
    Decent red chopping board, 7 inch boner , steak knife, sharpening steel,Saw? Should be enought to get you started. Victorinox knives are top quality too!
    Stripey apron and white "pork-pie" hat are optional and could be an upgrade for later!
    The trouble with a set is that there will be gimmicky stuff that you probably don't need for deer.

    Competely agree with MS...the only benifit to the butchery kits is that they are convenient to carry, but I have yet to see any where I've been overly impressed with the contents.

    As with all things its not what you've got its what you do with it that matters.

    Leaning to break a carcass down into the correct cuts with the maximum yield is the most important thing rather than having a multitude of knives and gadgets.

    Dave Stretton of Donnington Deer Management not only has an excellent range of butchery equipment he also does a great deer butchery DVD amongst his range of deer management courses and instructional DVD's

    No, it's still very rigid despite its age! It is a little shorter now though due to wear I think and the tip is quite blunt.
    Mind you I have done several old deers with it - ohh, and a couple of pigs!!

    monkey spanker, do you think it would be long enough for moose, some bits are a good arms lenght to reach?
