Spyderco has done a great job on knives for deer and larger game. Knives like the Stretch, Moran, Wilson, etc. are at the top of their class. However, my favorite hunting is for small game or upland game hunting. Animals like cottontails, snow shoe hares, grouse, ducks, pheasant, squirrels, etc. require a smaller, more slender bladed knife to clean. Spyderco does not have anything in this market.
I have several knives, like Stockmans, slender fixed blades, and etc. that I used to use. I wish Spyderco would look into this.
Such knives need to be slender because the game are small, yet they need enough slender handle you hold on to and use effectively.
