Hunting Knives On A Budget
There are many things to consider when budgeting for a hunting knife. For example, a stainless steel blade is going to be more expensive than a carbon steel blade and a detailed handle with a material such as bone is more expensive than just a plain wooden handle.
You need to first get the best blade you can for the money because you will get very frustrated with a less than sharp blade. You also need a blade that will stay sharp and not flex or dull easily.
Once you get that then you can start looking at handles. If all you can afford is the basic rubber or wooden handle then I would get that. Be sure and look at how the blade enters the handle and make sure it is secure and does not move easily.
Having a budget and not going into debt over you hunting knife will not only help you enjoy the knife alot more, it will also make you take care of it better. So the moral of the story is don’t go into debt over your hunting knives. It would be best if you could save first research what type of hunting knife you want and then take some time and save up for that knife.
Once you have cash in hand go out and try to get a bargain. When you have cash in hand you are more likely to get a better deal. Who knows you could come across someone in your daily conversation that needs some cash and has the exact hunting knife that you are looking for. If you have the cash in hand you can make him or her an offer and they are very likely to take it. I bet you that they would not take your credit card so buy with cash.
I hope this helps you with budgeting for your hunting knife. Think of it as an investment because if you take care of your hunting knife it should last many, many years.
