replaceable blade knives

I've been using a replaceable blade knife like this one for about a year:



I'm thinking I am going to get a few more and throw them in my various kits / tool bags.

probably put one in my trauma kit, one in the center console of my truck, as well as another one in my hunting kit. They work great on Elk.

They aren't a general purpose utility blade - I have plenty of them. put if you need a really sharp cut, these are hard to beat. Replacing the blade is simple.

I'd recommend getting one and trying it. You may like it.

Haven't seen those before. Is that a lockback AND a pushbutton lock on it, or is the pushbutton an opening function?

the push button is for replacing the blades. The lock functions as you'd expect.

These price around 30-35 bucks, depending on the model and manufacturer. The one I have came with 5 blades. (i'm not connected with any manufacturer or seller)

its worth getting one and trying it.

i've seen them that have box cutter type replacable blades. I"m not a surgeon, so I dont see me having much need of such scalpel type blades. People used to do everything with stone tools, which dull really quickly, and are a huge pita to re-sharpen. Not everyone had access to obsidian, or even high-grade flint, either. So a helluva lot of work got done with dull stone tools, you can bet your butt on that. I have 2 file blades on the Crunch tool and a small stone in the BOB, and of course, access to a dremel and other sharpening stuff if not in the woods, so I dont regard this as any sort of need for any forseeble situation for myself. For most such super-sharp requirements, what you want is a retractable-blade boxcutter, cause you need to change the blades so often. When I worked at a veggie plant, i sometimes had to cut-open many hundreds of boxes per shift. So hell yes, that blade got ends-swapped or tossed-replaced at least twice per hour. They cost about 10c per end when bought in bulk, so why not just swap-discard?

The blades are replaceable, that's the whole point of them. They're great for field dressing an animal, used in conjunction with other knives. They're always super sharp and if dull, you push a button, drop the dull blade and insert a new sharp one. Takes a second. They aren't for everyone, nor are they for every purpose. They're a good tool to have in your gear.

Your mileage may vary - if you don't have a use for them, cool. They work for me, and have cut down on some of the knives I would carry on a hunt, Though I still carry several and a sharpener. Save time not having to stop and sharpen a blade.
