    Knife

    Hi chaps not sure of the correct name but I am looking for the knife used for making the initial "unzipping" cut for the gralloch, the knife has a blunting button instead of a sharp tip to prevent puncturing the gut etc.

    Does anyone have a spare they could pass on at a reasonable price? Please PM if you have.

    Also what are the opinions on the "butt out" tool I have seen in the equipment mags.... good thing to have??

    Any help or advice appreciated.

    thanks WB

    The knife your refer to is obtainable very cheaply from a lot of outlets, I use moonrakerknives, but there is a member doing these in the classifieds, too.

    honestly , in my opinion you need one good knife in the field to perform a gralloch , it doesn't need tip protection if you lay your finger up the back of the blade for the unzip and if you choose well it will take the anus out but personally I prefer to do that back at the larder ? I minimise the amount of possible contamination by doing most of the prep back in the larder ? but that's just me.
    Right where's those stones , I'll start !

    A mate got me one of these from the slaughter house.....

    It is superb.....they are very thin and hold a good edge...
    These type of knives are used day in day out, so for a recreational stalker it should last a life time....
    You can do it all with one knife, but the round tip is a great help....

    Hi Willowbank
    The best knife to use is one with a gut hook I got one for a tenner on E-bay. I use a F-Dick knife for butchering they are really good. The butt out is useless don't waste your money just learn to do it with an ordinary knife.
    i bought a Beretta knife on here with a blade,saw & gut hook as well that is great in the field.
    Cheers Steve.

    Just find a knife which fits your hand and has a blade that is a suitable size and shape for the job. Not so long ago when I started I thought some of these things would be the answer to making the job easy. I doubt they would have proven to be so, and now after shooting a fair few deer I know I just couldn't be bothered with carrying 2 or 3 knives, getting one out to start the cut, another to zip up the belly, another to cut the legs and so on. Just 1 knife should do the job fine. By all means give one a go and you may find it works for you, but I think you'll find with practise you'll just put your finger on the end of the knife and unzip it in no time at all.
