    @Nick-D what is the rwl 34 knife? And when you say your victory edge needs a touch up afterwards what do you mean by touch up.

    I dunno; when skinning you're only using the knife for opening incisions and hocking (if I correctly understand your meaning) goes straight through the joint, When boning beef you are hard on bone all the time and trimming the meat between ribs and boning out necks is way harder than boning a deer in the field. A Victory should get you through about 4 deer easily. Cheers

    I once did a pig and a 2deer with a bacho....slight touch with steel halfway through and good to carry on...skinned all three and broke down into quarters and other bits, as has been said if you not being rough you can get away with allsorts....Ive got a tiny diamond like steel,about size of a biro pen...it really rough /abrasive...it will get knife back up n running very quickly,I found with stainless I needed a courser steel and stone to get any result,thought it would be other way...by far the easiest way I found to get yellow handled v knife (ex works)sharp was on old shearing stone wheel...

    Haha yeah I'm sure for a professional like yourself the beef is a lot more worka
    and you can probably fly through a few deer with one.

    Just anecdotally (at least in my experience) my victory goes dull in the space of a deer (or at least duller than I like to work with), I've used the same knife to process pigs and bone whole deer at home and it stays sharp a lot longer. I think the gritty coat and the inefficient scraping around finding joints etc means it goes dull much quicker.

    I actually really like the wee knife(was the first hunting knife I ever bought) and quite often use it still, but just use a havalon to for skinning and hocking cuts. They are certainly good enough to do the job.

    One of my own builds man, test knife for the steel. Love it, its a wicked steel. Takes a fine edge and has good edge stability so can be ground nice and thin. Still pretty easy to sharpen and work as well. Expensive though.

    Touch up for me would mean back to a stone, but not a full resharpen, usually only takes a few minutes at 1000 grit and back to razor
