    It's a knife that was invented so Birds and Trouts could fight back when they're hunted. : ) Seriously, i asked my brother (an avid hunter) and he tells me it's meant to be an all around good knife for cleaning birds and/or fish. Basically the one knife you'd need for many types of hunting/fishing. Not the best at any one thing but good at a lot of different things. But, what do i know... I can't kill a spider without feeling guilty.

    well if they are gonna fight back they might need a bigger knife...hahaha
    did some extra foot work and found the meaning and you are correct...hopefully you never get tired of hearing that
    thanks for the feedback this group has been awesome so far
    i was looking at the KITH contest and that is a great idea, but believe one of the other fellows suggested different categories for newbies and I agree as I am sure i would do much better than the rest on the draw as a new comer ...lol

    My version of a bird and trout knife

    Actually I always thought of a bird and trout knife as a smaller hunting knife. Like to think of them as across between a pairing knife and hunting knife. The blade should be thin and pretty narrow. That's my 2c worth

    Sorry man just my weird sense of humor. Yes I made it and thanks. When showing it to a potential customer I joked it would make a good trout knife. The response was "well it might be a little light for the fish I catch " good for a laugh and the name stuck
