Best $100 or less?

Discussion in 'General Knife Discussion' started by On the Prowl 4 waterfowl, Apr 5, 2019.

  1. First post so hopefully I'm not asking too generic of a question. My best friends son is turning 18 and I'd like to give him a knife. We are big waterfowl and upland hunters in addition to fishing. I'd like to get him a fixed blade for around/under $100. I have no idea where to begin. It will mostly be used for breasting out ducks and geese. I have an old Remington (RH-320) that was my dad's and I love it. I was thinking about something with the same look and feel, but I welcome all guidance. Thanks in advance for your consideration.

    It’s looks might push you away and it’s not close to what you have, but the Spyderco Stretch is my absolute favorite knife for ducks and geese.

    Have a look at the Little Finn by Ka-Bar. It's small but mighty! And the leather stacked handle is classic and durable.

    Threads like these always remind me that I'm from a podunk town in the sticks with a population under 1000. Where I'm from we never really used a knife for breasting a duck/goose/grouse/etc. Is that weird, lol?

    Look around in the Exchange forums here. Lots of custom makers hitting that $100 sweet spot. And it'll be something unique to give as a gift.
    https://www.bladeforums.com/forums/for-sale-fixed-blades.754/

    Over your price range, but would make a great gift
    https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/1095-orange-bulk-g10.1654080/

    Exactly what you're looking for, and a great value for under $100
    https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/childress-stabilized-bog-oak-440-c-neck-knife.1653989/

    Another one under $100
    https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/15n20-drop-point-hunter-edc.1653554/

    Look around... never know what you'll find. Might have to dig back a few pages, but you can't beat a custom knife as a gift for that price.

    Oh man... Op, please buy that third knife so I'm not tempted by it anymore.

    Yes on customs in the exchange! Those knives will perform beautifully and be heirlooms.

    Spyderco Aqua Salt or other Salt series knives would be good in waterfowl type conditions. Rustproof H1.

    Buck 101 or 102 (the 102 isn't as big as it looks in pictures)

    Buck 539 Open Season Small Game Fixed (pro) 4.5" S35VN... but it's about $20 over the budget - but you can't really find a nicer all around steel
    [​IMG]
    (or I think you can find the s30v version for $90)

  15. Thanks to everyone for your thoughtful replies. I really appreciate it. Fixall, your video blew me away! Can't wait to try that next season.... I've been hunting all my life and have never seen that done.
