Are you new to hunting? 

If you nodded your head in yes, then you must already be aware that as exciting and thrilling as it sounds, the dangers of the game are no less. Spending a night or two out in the wild can leave you with some fascinating memories, or dreadful nightmares based on how prepared you were for the trip. 

Now that you are ready to go on your first hunting trip with your mates, here are 5 types of hunting knives you must know of that will keep you and your group safe from harm. 

Have a good read!

  • Trail point

If you plan on becoming a serious hunter, then owning a trail point blade is the way to go! With a large belly, trail point hunting knife serves as the most desired pick for skinning animals. They can be exceptionally used for filleting and slicing, helping you cook an excellent meal in the woods.

  • Clip point

Have you seen a hunting knife blade which seems to be clipped off? If yes, then you are familiar with the clip point blade. A highly popular hunting knife variety, clip point makes the cut for all tasks which require accuracy. Such a knife offers clean skin penetration and assists in slicing and dicing too. 

  • Drop point

One of the ideal blades that a hunter should carry is the drop point blade. With a curved spine and a large belly, this particular blade never fails to leave a lasting impression. Such a knife works exceptionally well when you try to dress a small animal without puncturing any organs and slice it. You can easily use this variety for other tasks as well ( around the house or other general areas too). 

  • Gut hook

An exceptional blade variety in the hunting knife domain, the gut hook, is easily recognisable due to its unique appearance. The main reason why gut hook has all the praises its way is that it can easily skin any animal without piercing within. While many other blades claim to make peeling a piece of cake, gut hook specialises in skinning, making it better than every other option.

  • Wharncliffe

Do you tend to cut yourself often while slicing? If yes, then do carry a Wharncliffe blade on the hunting trip with you. This blade is known for facilitating easier and safer slicing experience while reducing the chances of getting poked by the tip of the blade. 

The one thing that every first-timer should know about hunting trips is that leaving their fate and wellness to destiny is not how it works (especially if you are not planning on dying). With these blade types handy around the camp, shooing off predators will be easy and effective. Good luck!
