    Why do you think you’d like the trapper set better?

    I like a thinner blade profile for gutting and skinning work. (Thinner from edge to knife back)

    Makes sense and that’s what I like about the trapper also.

    Thanks I’m going to call him after work. The trapper set seems like the best “deal” money wise. It’s basically a 2 for 1 deal if I looked at the price list correctly.

    That is what I did years ago, 2 knives in now and still not exactly what I am looking for. Although I like my knives, I am still looking for the thinner knife blade (cutting edge to back of knife) I want. I think the trapper set will fit what I am looking for.

    That is exactly why I bought the straight Trapper. I bought it basically as a 'bung hole' knife, but it has field dressed many a deer all by itself ... start to finish. Not skinned, but field dressed.

    Talked to Dave today. He just got back from his elk hunt last night. Thought I'd pick up the trapper set on the way home from OKC.
    He has the knives and the sheaths are done but not in his possession so I'll pick them up down the road.

    For those interested in McCrosky knives, keep in mind Dave isn’t a spring chicken, so if you want one, it might be a good idea to make your move before it’s too late.:blush:

    Since I’m done deer hunting this year, I really figured I might not get to try out my knives on game until next season, but I got to try out the elk skinner yesterday evening on my daughter’s buck and didn’t even cut myself.:thumb:

    I’m headed out now to skin the head for a euro mount, so the trapper set will get broken in too.:thumb:
