Finding the best fixed blade hunting knife is difficult. After all hunting seasons, funds, and available time limit the number of game harvesting opportunities for almost every hunter. And, for many of those who do get the opportunity (ourselves included); skill, weather and chance impact success rates even further. If by some chance, you were able to hunt every day, or week, or even every month finding your idea hunting knife would be a lot more systematic. You would be able to find the best hunting knife for many situations in short order.
However, since many of us are only able to hunt, fish, or enjoy the outdoors occasionally, we decided to take some of the guesswork out of choosing a fixed blade hunting knife. We scoured reviews, forums, and manufacturer’s specifications. We even included some of our own experiences into the mix. And while there are myriad hunting knives out there, we think the following selection is great for almost any budget.
