BreakdownIf you only want to take one knife into the backcountry, this is the one for you. We've used the Argali Carbon knife to cut up an entire bull elk without the need for resharpening. It's made from premium S35VN steel for superior edge retention and textured G10 handles to keep it secure in your hand no matter the circumstances. This carbon knife is razor-sharp with a full handled ergonomic grip with the weight of a skeletonized knife. The Kydex sheath comes with a single tension screw to allow you to customize how hard your knife "locks" in.
Excellent all around knife.
The knife is sized appropriately for reaming out the pelvic cavity if you are like me and choose not to carry a bone saw while backpack hunting. The blade profile is thin, but rigid enough that it allows you to cut through tendons at knuckle joints and gently work the blade through the joint for separation. Additionally, the slight curve profile of the knife reduces the chance of puncturing the stomach and intestinal tract while field dressing.
It's also appropriately sized to accomplish field caping on horned/antlered game. The fine point allows the user to sufficiently work the blade around the antler base as well as the deep eye ducts that are prevalent in mule deer. Turning ears, nose, lips, and eyelids with this knife is doable, but I still prefer to use a small scalpel for this type of work.
The handle length fits my size hand well (large glove profile), but those with very large hands may find it too short depending on how they hold a knife. The girth of the handle feels like a traditional knife, yet in a lightweight, skeltonized package...genius! The handle material is extremely grippy and gives the user confidence while working with bloody hands.
My only suggestion is to extend the jimping the entire length of the blade's topside. This would allow all users, regardless of finger length to take advantage of this feature that assists with blade control.
Highly recommend this knife to all backpack hunters....well done Argali!
Great knife, great company
Quality of knife is excellent. Great steel and G10 scales. Kydex sheath quality was not the best. Sheath is separated in areas and knife rattles because of poor fit.
