I have used this knife to gut several whitetail deer and it performed perfectly. It's very light, almost too light but i'm not complaining. I recently bought the hidden canyon to try out and I love that one too. I used it the day after I got it on a deer. Every benchmade knife I own was ready to use right out of the box. Very sharp and they stay sharp a LOOOOOONG time. There are knives that are a fraction of the price that work great once or twice but they always need to be sharpened. I am not very good at sharpening and the S30V steel seems to stay sharp a VERY LONG time. I also have a mini boost for my EDC and it is also great. I'm sure it would gut a deer just as good but would be harder to clean up after the fact. I have not tried to chop down trees or cut a hole in a car hood with any of these knives but the bottom line is this, You can't go wrong with anything made by benchcraft when it comes to cutting up animals. Find the one that first your hand the best and you're all set for the rest of your life. I'm not a fan of this plastic sheath. It works but I worry about a screw popping out. I still prefer the old leather sheaths.

After gutting my 5th white tail I am finally needing to sharpen it. The first 3 I would touch the skin and it would open the deer up. I nicked my hand cutting the heart out and it is so sharp I didn't know I cut myself. I will use this knife the rest of my life!

I have nearly every hunting knife from Benchmade from the last 5 years. This one is the one I keep reaching for. I have both the hook and non hook. Both get a lot of use. The non-hook will be going big game hunting with me this year and I suspect for years to come.

I've breasted out far more ducks with this knife than I can count and will finally need to send it in after this season for sharpening. The blade design is excellent and I truly appreciate the additional jimping on the tip for fine detail work. I was concerned with how the santoprene would hold up compared to G10, but so far the material stays grippy with no signs of wear. Benchmade hit a homerun in my opinion with this one.

This blade has proven fantastic for skinning whitetails, and melts through skin and meat when breasting out ducks and geese. As always the edge on Benchmade knives is razor sharp and holds its edge for a long time. Great all around utility knife for every hunter.

I own many knives, have used many field dressing deer. This knife is the perfect size. You don't even feel it on your belt, it's Sharp As a Razor, the perfect shape for gutting, quartering, and skinning if need be. Just got done field dressing a whitetail buck, this thing is razor sharp, sliced through the Hide like butter. Blade geometry seems to be perfect for field dressing large game. The orange handle is a huge bonus when using it in the woods, you're not going to lose it.

After using other less expensive knives and knives that I've inherited I thought it was time to purchase a high quality hunting knife of my own. I just used it last week to skin and quarter an elk and was thoroughly impressed with the knife. It stayed sharp for the whole process, is still plenty shard, and was easy to handle and work with. Having the orange handle is awesome when it comes to finding the knife after setting it down to move the animal around. If you're thinking about buying this knife I would suggest that you move forward with your purchase and enjoy the knife when it comes time to use it in the field for a long time to come!

I no longer carry a hatchet with me deer hunting because this knife does it all. This is my favorite hunting knife and I use it from gutting to processing my deer meat. This knife makes it though rib cages and pelvic bones and stays sharp. I've come to the conclusion it is impossible to wear down and beat down this knife. The grip works great in wet and slippery situations. I am an benchmade me never for life, and I use this knife every chance I get. Buy it, chances are you wont need or want another knife as your primary hunting knife. Spend money on quality benchmade knives and not junk knives that only last one hunting season. No one has a better warranty and customer service than benchmade.

The Steep Country Hunter – First impression – this is a nice knife, fit is comfortable and it is not over done. Feels well built but not like a brick in my pack. I do not like the angle of this blade it is too much skinner not enough do it all. Love the orange handle and tackiness of the grips.
In use – I do not know how but the starting incision on the anus and hind legs did just that, started the cut, the tip stayed in the space between hide and meat.My first impression of the blade being "too much of a skinner" evaporated as I was very easily able to free the anus of the connective tissue in the pelvis. Blade length is optimal for skinning the narrow forelegs without giving your wrists and forearms too much of a workout.As well as getting inside the cavity to free the diaphragm cut the esophagus and remove the heart.
Blade maintained a good level of sharpness, I skinned and boned 2 deer, skinned and quartered another in 4 days and did not touch up the blade. In honesty I should have touched the blade up halfway through but I wanted to see how far I could push it. By the end the blade had plenty of edge left to do the job, but it was not a razor.
After actually putting the thing to use this is definitely an all purpose mountain knife, and in my opinion a lot of knife for the money.
