Great Knife
I used this knife for the first time this week on two white tail deer. It was used from start to finish on both of them with the same blade. Gutting, skinning, quartering, deboning and cutting up the meat. Blade seems to be getting a little dull upon completion of the second deer. I will keep the same blade for the next deer for comparison. Seem to make the whole process easier and quicker. Take the blade off to clean the tallow from the pivot point and replace after cleaning. easy to do. I gave a 4 star because I need to use it more to give a 5. I will update this later after more usage. For what I have done this is a great knife.

Havalon Piranta does it all!
After buying my brother one as a gift and watching him skin out our Moose last year I decided to pick one up for this hunting season.  A few deer have been put into the cutting shed this year and all of them skinned out quickly and easily with the Havalon.  I even used it after a successful BC Salmon trip, sure the blade could have been longer but I cant remember carcasses being as paper thin with my fillet knife as they were with the Piranta.My only real comment is blade durability and cleaning (difficult with any folding knife mechanism), but none of that would deter me from recommending them!

great knife
incredible knife, I used it for skinning deer, field dressing, and butchering deer in the field.  Also use for skinning coon and coyote.  Incredible sharpness and easy to change blades.  I have skinned 100+ animals with this knife.  I highly recommend it.

This is the bees Knees, coolest tool/toy I owe
Im a butcher so this helps when Im working at the store, when I hunt its great for skinning game, when Im not working/hunting, I replaced the knife with one that is dirty. I use the dirty one for anything like a regular knife and I still sharpen it, even though its suppose to be replaced, but for every day use its a great knife. Even thought its resharpened(dirty one) it works great, better than any knife I have. When I need to cut meat or animals I simply switch the blades with (new) clean ones. Highly recommended it, and also recommended getting a lot of spare ones in case you need to replace or multiuse.

Survival Kit Must Have!
I bought two: the orange model for my survival kit. Great for making fuzz sticks for fire starting, cleaning fish, birds, and small game.I bought the black model for daily carry. A gazillion utility uses, plus as already mentioned numerous uses in processing fish, game, and fowl. I even used it to cut pork, venison, and beef into chunks to fit into my meat grinder for making sausage, or at least I did until my drug addled brother stole my grinder.Great for ultralight backpacking!Caveats: you cant get crazy with this knife or youll break it...not that you should get crazy with any knife! Obviously the blade is too short to fillet anything larger than a small sardine, but thats just the nature of the beast. All in all, this is probably the best knife I own. Its so versatile it could have been called the Volksknife!

Give it a shot. You wont regret it.
I skinned and quartered two red deer hinds and caped a Fallow buck with one blade and it was still sharp.  I wanted something different after dulling my knife caping an Aoudad with tough hide.  Just be careful when caping as one flick of the wrist will slice through the hide.  A must have tool.

EXTREMELY SHARP AND DURABLE
The knife is extremely sharp and durable. I have skinned and de-boned 7 medium to small deer with one blade. (Due for a change according to Havalon). The only negatives are that it take a pair of pliers to change the blade and fat collects between the blade and the mount. Not an issue, just a possible concern. Thanks for a great product! Works as advertised!

Ridiculously sharp
I used mine for the first time on a caribou. Blade was still functionally sharp after one entire animal but I changed it anyway. Knife was so sharp I worried about sloppy technique and injuring myself after dark. Go slow and watch what youre doing!

Best Knife on the planet
Im a Taxidermist so I use a lot of blades in my shop I only use Havels blades and have for years, I baught the first knife for a very good friend of mine for Christmas because he wanted a knife that he didnt have to sharpen every night, so I got the piranta edge for him and he fell in love with it. I eventually baught one for my self and I use it when I guide other hunters for skinning and quartering, I can skin 3 to 5 deer with the same blade before having to change it out, now thats what Im talkin about. Cant leave home without it.

Last field knife Ill ever own
Used the piranta last fall.Skinned quartered and boned 2 Buck Antelope 2 Bull elk and a buck mule deer and too many doves ducks and geese to count. Used 5 blades...broke 2 learning the limitations  of this knife. Ive used stout dull knives my whole life and was leaning on this knife like I had become accustomed. But with this knife you need to let the razor sharp blade do the work. Like the product so much just received the piranta bolt in the mail as my second havalon knife. My only question is can I use the # 60 a blade in my original piranta? They seem to fit ok. Thanx again 4 a great product!

LOVE EM!!!
When I first came across this blade I just loved the idea of a knife using scalpel blades so, I "HAD" to have one. After actually using for the first time on a 300+lb wild boar, it became my go to. I have owned many much more expensive fancy skinning/caping blades, and needless to say, theyve all been replaced with this one little lightweight knife. The extra blades are an awesome addition and the blades do hold up well. Im able to get about 4 hogs fully dressed, cleaned and skinned before replacing the blade is needed. I could probably get more out of them but, always like to work with as sharp of a knife as possible. As for corrosion like the gentleman from Alaska said, I can see how the harsh saltwater could do that but, it hasnt been an issue for me (I live nowhere near the ocean). Since my first one, Ive also picked up the Tracer 22 for caping smaller game such as coyotes, bobcat, and those tighter areas on trophy hogs, deer, and anything else thats headed for the wall. Overall I couldnt be happier! Great little blade. Price is great for such a nice little knife. I started with the nice stainless handled ones, after loosing one in the field I just stick with the nice bright orange ABS handle instead. Harder for me to lose:)

Fantastic Knife
Great knife. Ive dressed and skinned many elk with this knife in the past few years. Just simply replace the blade when dullness becomes an issue and continue your work. Blades will occasionally break when stressed laterally, but it is of little issue when carrying plenty of replacements. Blade replacement takes a matter of seconds and the blade attachment mechanism is solid and does not wobble or disengage from the handle. Would recommend for anyone.

ok for the money buy replacement blades
I used the knife on three white tail deer it was sharp at first but found that it dulled easy after hitting bone or brisket. found that one blade would do one deer also the handle design held tallow and was hard to clean up. i would recommend the knife for the novice hunter but wont get rid of my marble knife.  with the replacement blades you always have a sharp knife in the field

This knife is NOT for coastal regions
I carried the EDGE everyday working for 6 weeks in Southeast Alaska. The blades are sharp and clean right out of the pack, but after leaving them in my front pocket for a few days of work they corrode heavily. They lose their edge, even with NO use. I am extremely disappointed with these knives. I have used your scalpels and blades for skinning and detailing bears and all my furbearers. I guess that these new knives and blades are made cheaper than the scalpels. Bottom line, I will NOT buy another piranta.

A suggestion to make it more complete
I just received my knife and I like what I see although I have not yet used it. My focus was on finding something light in weight, versatile and sharp. I think I found it. I realize that from a marketing perspective it may make sense to sell the case seperate from the knife but it would be great to see the knife with a case especially since the blades are throw aways and they need to be with the knife. Just a thought that you may want to consider. I look forward to using the knife.

Drew blood right out of the box
This is not the knief to trim/clean your finger nails with.  We became blood brothers right out of the box.  When skinning or gutting game, be extremely careful, it will slice past where you want to stop.

Awesome knife(Crazy Sharp) blades
I just purchased this knife last week and it suites all my needs. I carry it with me all the time now. I have already skinned 2 deer and it continues to cut diffrent things when i need it. All on one blade. I am just curious how long i can go on one blade. I have owned all types of knives but never one quite like this one!!!

Great all around knife!
I am a big game guide in Canada so I do alot of hunting and skinning in a year, probably more than the average person and this knife is great for caping and fleshing. Also great for skinning the hide off the skull of an animal. Was really great for turning lips, ears, eyes and nose and the fleshing of the face. These knives are difficult to find in Canada and replacement blades can also be difficult to find to buy in Canada.

Great Blade
I used this on my mule deer I shot this year and was very impressed. I was able to get through cleaning and skinning the entire deer with just 1 blade. By the end it was dull, but I would expect that out of any knife. Nice thing about this, I just swapped the blade and didnt have to spend half an hour sharpening. One thing I do not like however, is the handle. For my purposes I chose this knife for visibility if I set it down. But I think the clip isnt necessary and Im debating removing it. If I used it everyday it would be valuable, but this knife is my cleaning/skinning/caping knife. I would get rid of the clip and add more rubber inserts to the other side of the handle. This might make it slightly heavier, but when my hands are bloody inside an elk or deer, I dont want to risk losing my grip with a knife this sharp.The sheath it comes with serves the purpose, but its quality isnt on par with that of the knife. And with the extra blades, its hard to find one that will fit the same purpose. I just wouldnt trust this sheath on my hip when Im battling scrub oak on the hill. Bottom line is I will always keep this knife in my pack. Whenever Im on the mountain, this knife will be in the pack that Im wearing. Its a great knife and cant wait to see how its get better.

A sharp little skinner
The little orange knife is awesome. Its sharp and holds an edge very well. When it does get dull , you are just seconds away from a new knife. Just change the blade and you are back to work.A few months ago , a friend and I were hog hunting in statesboro, Ga. We had taken 16 hogs . Well , the hunt was over and the work was about to start. As we started to skin these animals , the little orange knife just kept on cutting and cutting. Four and a half hours later we were done. Yes we changed the blades , but it was fast , we didnt have to stop and sharpen any knives. We just kept right on skinning. You will not go wrong with one of these knives. Scott

Stone Sheep hunt in B.C.
Recently went Stones Sheep hunting in the mountains of British Columbia and brought along my Havalon Piranta. Weighing in at 2 oz it was a great packing knife. We harvested a 9 and a half year old stones sheep and used this knife to skin, cape and flesh the hide. The sharp blades made a big job go smooth and fast. This knife is now a part of my yearly sheep hunting pack.

The best, but two small downers
I love it. I end up using a Leatherman to change blades, and keep a rubber band around it to keep it from opening in my pack or my pocket. I recommend this to anyone, newb or experienced hunter, for skinning, field dressing, even joint splitting. You do still need a fixed blade or stout folder for regular survival stuff, but this will take care of all meat care by itself!

I use this knife for deer hunting.  It is lightweight and super sharp.  It comes with 12 replacement blades but one stays sharp forever. This knife is top notch, it dosent get any better than this one! There is a larger version of this knife however I personally think that the smaller of the two is really easier and better suited for the task. Highly recommended.

Do-it-all Scapel
I purchased the Piranta-EDGE a few months ago, and never leave home without it.  From skinning out coyotes to stripping insulation off electrical wires, it serves as my "all-purpose" pocket knife.  Great size for small game processing.  No need for sharpening - insert a new blade and the knife is back to new with effortless cutting.  Excellent product!

best knife in the world
when i finaly shot a deer i got the oppertunity to use my havalon knife. it made skinning and cutting the meat off the bone so easly. a friend of mine got a deer also and i helped him skin out his deer. i asked him to hold my knife a second then he was like wow this knife is so light and i said use it. i watched him he goes wow its so sharp. i told him thats the same blade from the first deer i shot. he said to me no this cant be the same blade i said yes it is. he said let me see how it does on the back straps i told him it does a good job because the blade are thin. he tried it and got done with one side and said wow i really like this knife. i told him if u think about getting one go to your web site and buy one. told him u get 12 extra blades and one already in the knife. i can say one one thing this knife was the best knife i have ever bought. its vary simple to change a blade and holds a vary good sharp edge. i give this knife a 5 star and plus if i could go higher in a rating.

It is not made to be used as a tough knife as the blades will brake if you put any angled pressure on them. They are made to cut and skin and nothing works better.

This is a fantastic knife.  Came highly recommended.  Yes it is indeed sharp!  Quick change blades, are easy to replace.  So far I have only used to process Quail this season.   Getting ready for a pig hunt, looking forward to the opportunity dress a pig with it.This knife is a must have in my gear bag.Only con I have had is the belt clip.  It has stretched a bit and no longer holds the knife securely in place when clipped to a belt or pocket edge.Otherwise I am extremely happy with this knives performance!

I guide big game hunts, deer, elk, moose, and use my Piranta for everything from skinning, capeing, and quartering. Its so light you dont even know your packing it.I like just a few seconds to change the blade and your ready to go with a super sharp knife. I also pack a Baracuda with me, it works great for removing the backstraps from moose and elk. I occationally break a few blades when I get in a hurry.

Ive used it to field dress and skin whitetails and perfroms great, steel in blades are good for holding edge so you dont replace blades that frequently. and if you use the blade in a questionable area (infection/bacteria) you just throw the blade away and put in a new one.

Piranta: You definitely have an EDGE
In the circle of sustenance ethical hunters understand the proper respect due a harvested animal. This set of ethics demands a prompt and professional field dressing to assure there is no wanton waste of game. The Piranta makes this task easier and more proficient. This is definitely a product that gives you an edge.When field dressing or skinning your animal, the Pirantas surgically-sharp blade helps to aid with speed and finesse. With its ergonomically molded handle and easy-grip black rubber inlay, the design allows for proper fit and comfort. A bright blaze orange handle makes it easy to find should you lay it down in the woods or weeds. The convenient pocket clip gives an added option should you decide not to carry it in its sheath. Weighing in at just over 2 ounces this knife is perfect for the weight conscience hunter.Having used a variety of hunting knives across the years the only thing I regret is that I did not own a Piranta-EDGE sooner.

Outstanding knife, VERY SHARP and LIGHT!
I was introduced to the Havalon Piranta Edge through "The Meat Eater" TV show. I gave it a go. Wow! This is a great knife and is very sharp! Ive skinned, dressed, and processed 2 deer before my first blade became as sharp as my regular hunting knife. At that time, I decided to change blades(to see how to) and process my third deer. Simple. I have introduced this knife to many of my hunting friends. They simply responded with a collective, "Wow, Ive got to get one of these knives"!!! Go get you one too.

A must
I purchased this knife this fall and Used it to skin two elk. It was incredibly sharp and held its edge well. I only had to change the blade twice. It was also very light and easy to control the blade which is very important when using such a sharp knife. I would reccomend this product to any outdoorsman or woman.

Excellent knife for skinnnig and caping
I was envious of a guide that was using this knife in 2011 and purchased one of my own for the 2012 season. Ive skinned 7 deer so far this season and I am extremely satisfied. I no longer have to hunt for a sharp knife as I always keep extra blades handy.

Excellent skinning knife
I use this knife for skinning mule deer and elk. I typically skin out 2-3 animals before changing out a blade. Blade replacements are cheap, and its very nice to start with a new edge without having to do any sharpening. Replace the blade, back in business. These blades are sharp enough to perform detailed work, such as caping out a head for those trophys that are going to the taxidermists, or even for cleaning skulls for a European mount. Warning...you cut yourself with this blade, its going bone deep! Super sharp! My first blade change made the hair stand up on my arm just thinking about it. Great tool to have in your pack!

Ive used this knife on big game and fish. I back pack hunt a lot. Weight is at a premium. I used to carry two knives and a sharpener. I now just carry my Piranta and 4 blades. I can skin/gut, quarter and bone my game with just one knife and 2 blades. I carry extra just in case I break a blade or lose one. (Hasnt happened yet)

Never run out of a good edge again..
This havalon knife makes meat handling a breeze. Very light, compact, and eay to use. Works perfect for skinning and processing meats. Works well in my pack. Carrying extra blades with me ensures I never lose an edge eve again. Ihave always been skeptical about new knives like this...but Im glad I tried it.  Very good purchase.

And Caped my wifes buck very easily. (She always shoots the biggest) Anyway, when we got home, I immediately had one shipped to our host in Kamiah,Id. He loves it too!Great product!!

This is the only knife you will need.
This sept. while elk hunting my nephew shot a black bear, we dressed it, skinned it out completely for a rug then just to see what the blade had left we were able to skin out and bone 3/4s of my buddies elk before we changed the blade. I dont get impressed easily but this is a solid product and would recommend this to the harshest critics to give it a try.

The pinacle of hunting knives
This is the best knife on the market for a hunter. This knife and the Havalaon Baracuda are, hands down, the sharpest knives you will ever use. In fax they are so sharp that I advise caution when using them.My first time using them on an elk, we used to go through 4 knives constantly sharpening them to gut, skin, quarter and process the elk and it was a battle even with those knives. I used one piranta and one baracuta blade to do all of these same tasks and when the blades were dull for the second elk I just swapped them out.

I own a skull works business and use Havalon exclusively. These are the sharpest knife I have found. There is a slight learning curve with the blades as they will break under some stressful situations, best advice just relax and let the blade do the work.

Simply gets the job done.
Working as a guide in Montana and hunting on my own in Colorado, this knife has helped keep my pack light and get the job done faster. Unless I am caping, one blade will take care of an entire elk. And when it comes time to cape, just snap a new blade in and youre good to go.I particularly like that I dont have to carry around my 3 knife set and sharpener anymore. When it come to the blades they are flexible enough to follow the bones and keep as much meat as possible. The dull tip on the one blade is great when being careful with the hide, but the sharp point on the other easily gets into tight places like around the tear ducts and close to the pedicle. The only con I can think of is that it doesnt come with a container to put used blades in, but as for the performance and versatility, its the only knife I use.

TOP NOTCH
Bought this knife being skeptical about the durability of the blade retention system. Turned out that it worked as advertised, and impressed me with its ability to get into tight spots and cut with little force. Works great from birds to big game, and its not just a skinning knife, as I used it to cut up meat as well.

Its so compact and does and amazing job. Its the best product Ive use in my forty years of huunting. I have also purchased this product for several of my family & friends as gifts.

6 Caribou in 8 days
6 of us went on a self guided, fly-in Alaska Caribou hunt this year. Even though the hunting was slow we all managed to bag nice caribou. Two of us had Havalon knives and they worked amazingly well. Each bull had to be field butchered and packed back to our lakeside camp for pickup by our float plane. THe Havalons made quick work of quartering and de-boning the animals.We also used the Havalons to cape the caribou in the field for our taxidermists.This is where the knives really shined. The sharpness, the easy to change blades and the ability to use both large and small blades really helped with the caping chores and assured that we did not damage the hides.Since this was a flyin hunt we were pretty limited on weight. The Havalons are light and you can bring plenty of extra blades and still carry less weight than a standard hunting knife and sharpening stone. Overall a great product.

Best knife Ive ever owned
I used to carry several knives in my pack, especially for larger game.  Now I carry the havalon piranta.  I have used it on elk, bear, mt. lion, and mule deer.  It performed flawlessly even when caping the tough hide on a bull elks neck.  I hate sharpening knives, and who wants to do that in the field?  That is why the havalon piranta is my favorite post-kill tool I own.

Best knife for the pack!
I quartered, deboned and caped my bull elk last week using only this one knife! I did break 3 blades but carrying extra blades is easy since they are so light. You should always have pliers to change the blades otherwise you could cut yourself easily. The blades are a little week wear they connect to the handle but as long as you stay away from any bone you will be just fine! I highly recommend this knife to every hunter out there! I say its a must have for any pack!

Big Game hunters best friend
My husband was watching his hunting shows on tv one evening when a commercial aired for a new Havalon knife.  My husband said hed sure like to have it.   I took a mental note and 2 weeks later bought my husband this knife for Fathers Day. He lit up like a kid at Christmas.  He loves his knife and doesnt hunt or guide hunts without it in his field dressing bag. He was highly impressed with the quality and durability of this knife and all the replacement blades were an added bonus.  Now I know what to get him for Christmas, birthdays, and anniversaries. Gotta be a Havalon.

Scalpel sharp and always in my pack!
I used my Havalon Piranta when breaking down my elk this year. Have used one before and loved it, but using it on a huge animal like an elk was awesome. Super sharp and cut through like the meat was butter. My buddy ended up turning the wrong way and cut into his finger. Deep cut, but the knife was so sharp it healed very quickly. I would recommend this knife to anyone, especially the backcountry guys concerned with weight.

These are the best knives I have ever used and would not use anything else in the field or in my shop as I am a taxidermist, I have been using these knives for the last five years. Take a small fine steel with you as the stainless steel blades can be sharpened when the blade roles over when you hit bone. I cape four to five deer on the same blade. Great customer service. I would like to see Havalon come up with a small container to put used blades in while in the field.

FANTASTICALLY SHARP
I love the PIRANTA EDGE for field dressing, it cuts effortlessly through whitetail hide. So easy its like opening a zipper, i cut my skinning and field dressing time in half, easily. I also love it for de boning and getting that fine film off of venison, allows you to cut precisely so you waste as little meat as possible. Overall this is a great product and i plan to keep one on me while on all of my hunting trips. The blades are easy to change and ultra cheap, so no more dull knife for me!!!!!

Best Knife Bar None
Couldnt ask for a better knife.  I have tried several different setups, from small skinning knifes where I was constantly sharping my knife till I could nt hardly keep an edge on it by the time I was done with my elk.  To big knife setups with bone saws.  No need for any of it.  One knife and a pack of blades and your off.  Wether its saving weight for a backpack hunt or hunting just out of the truck, your not going to be disappointed. My buddy and I both have one. We completely skinned and boned out two bull elk with these knifes.  It took six blades to stay sharp and move quickly per bull.  Hide is the biggest killer as you know. Skinning the head will use one blade.  Depending on how you tackle your skinning you could skin and bone with one blade if your methodical per side.  Bottom line, Get One.

I use this mostly on whitetails, turkey and waterfowl. The knife is the best one Ive ever owned. I can use on blade for multiply deer and while it is easy to snap a blade in two, I can pop on a new blade and be back to work in no time. I love this knife and Ive given them to family members as gifts over the years and now it seems like everyone in our deer camp uses the Piranta!

simple, sharp, a all out great knife!!!
I love this knife. Ive had mine for a few years now and I have nothing bad to say about it. I like the orange handle because when out in the field I can safely set the knife down and find it very easily. I like how the easy the blades are to replace!!! I can skin a deer, Cape out the head, and cut up some of the meat all with one blade, and end with a sharp blade still!!!

EXCELLENT, BEST SKINNING KNIFE I OWN!!!!
WE USE THIS KNIFE TO SKIN ALL OF OUR DEER.  IT IS THE BEST FOR LARGE GAME THAT I HAVE OWNED.  TRIED IT ON SQUIRRELS AND IT IS TO BIG AND SHARP, BUT OTHER THAN THAT IT ROCKS!  EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE A HAVALON IN THEIR COLLECTION.  BEING ABLE TO REPLACE BLADES IS AMAZING, AND THE KNIFE BODY IS WELL CONSTRUCTED MAKING IT AN ALL AROUND AWESOME TOOL.

yep
I can feild dress a deer as well as process the whole thing with one blade. While not like new afterwards I wouldnt call it dull and could easily continue using the same blade. My brother got one free with a backpack purchase. Shortly after that he ordered 3 more. A spare, one for my bro-n-law and one for myself. My brothers somehow developed a small crack near a screw at the end. It was still operational that season. In february we were at the eastern outdoor sport show in harrisburg PA. We showed this to lady behind the counter. She shrugged and said it looks like you need a new one. she turned and put a new knife on the counter with a pack of a dozen blades, stating we are here to stand behind our product. Then I took them up on current sale price of 100 pack of blades for $25 if memory serves. Cant beat that. The only setback was she was out of 100 packs so actually got several "dozen" packs instead totaling 108 blades for the price.. Great product at affordable price

Fantastic Knife
My wife bought this for my birthday in May, so I havent gotten to use it yet on a deer this fall, but I cant wait to test it out. I have used it to skin squirrels and it works great. Plus my kids think its great because Steven Rinella uses it (which is where we first saw the knives) and anything he does is good enough for them! We actually used it to clean squirrels my 8 year old son and I shot recently. Looking forward to much more use. The only reason I gave four stars is because I havent yet used it on big game.

Executive Chef says--Simply the best!
I skinned a doe in about 5 minutes 2 weeks ago, same blade from start to finish of course and still have the blade on the knife. Super easy to use and one heck of a sharp blade....coming from an Executive Chef that is saying something, I love SHARP!!! The switching of blades is simple, but not easy or cheap. It holds in place extremely well.Carry case is perfect holding extra blades and made very well.Color, mine is bright Orange, is great in the field!

three guys three knives one moose
I shot a nice bull moose in southern Yukon, two of my friends took out there knives to give me a hand, I took out my havalon and gave it to them to try. they both tried it, I watched and they were so pleased with the Havalon skinner, they kept skinning. The job was done, I didnt touch the moose. Both guys have now ordered Havalon knives.

An Instant Classic
On a high hunt this year, my buddy and I each brought only one knife; the Piranta.  Every task from slicing cheese to field dressing and boning out a mule deer was accomplished with four replaceable blades.  One knife and a few blades has replaced my old standard of carrying two knives and a diamond stone, and this shaves off a lot of extra weight.  Buy one!

a taxidermist thought he knew knives.
Caping heads properly is an art..This knife makes it much faster and a lot cleaner.Youre hands do not tire once you figure out to let the blade do the work and not your force..I carry one in my pack one in the house and one in the glove box..The rest of my hunting knives stay sharp too. because i do not use them much.Great product.

I will always have a Havalon
When you need a sharp lightweight blade for skinning or carving up meat this knife is excellent. A fraction of a dollar replacement blades is way better than time spent sharpening. It is not a heavy knife for pushing through cartilage or small bones.  The blaze orange helps keep me from walking away with my knife left behind on the ground.

This knife is easy to use and I have used mine to cape out elk, Deer, Swan, Sandhill Crane and misc birds with no problems.  My knife handle I found on a gravel road.  It had been driven over two weeks before i stopped and picked it up.  The plastic has a few places where it was bent but it still works smoothly

havalon piranta
over all a great knife i will be looking into getting a smaller one in the future. my main issues were with the texture on the grip. the over all angle and feal was great but when my hands were bloody the knife was hard to keep a handle on. also 3 times the blade came off in between the skin and ribs... it was fun going in after a razer blade that is lost. over all a great product and will for sure buy again.

I used my Piranta for the first time on a Mule Deer and loved it.  It was by far, the sharpest blade I have ever used and I only changed blades once.  It was great not having to stop, clean and sharpen the blade, and then start again.  I used to carry 2 to 3 knives and a sharpening steel; never again.  Thanks for making a great product.

We on a average year in AZ. Elk hunts skin and quarter aprox. 6/15 Elk and this knife gets it done Two guys can skin and quarter a thousand pound animal in aprox. 35 min. No stoping and changing knives or sharpening here might break a blade but for the most part we got it down over the years we can get through a entire Elk with a single blade maybe two if we break one CANT SAY ENOUGH GREAT TOOL.

What a great piece of hunting equipment!
Got this knife late last year and this year is the first time that I had a chance to use it. Great knife. Did a total of 4 elk with two of these knives, went thru 8 blades, saves time since you do not have to stop and sharpen, just replace the blade 30 or fewer seconds and keep going. Will make sure to buy more blades for the future.

Best in feild dressing knife Ive ever
I am a surgeon and love knives.  I have several in my field dressing kit and since Ive owned a Piranta Edge Ive not used anything else.  Last year I dressed a bull with 4 blades.  It took another 2 blades to cape him out.  The effectiveness of the always shape blades is unsurpassed.  If I were allowed only one knife in the field...it would be the Edge!  Great product.

OUTSTANDING KNIVES
I started out using this knife a couple of years ago. I have over twenty knives I thought could get the job done. NOT until I picked up this knife was my work complete. I am a guide and have to cape a lot of heads, this knife made it tremendously easy! NO more knives, only two knives in my back pack the Piranta and the Baracuta. I dont know how many clients I had to order these very same knives for, but a bunch and all of my guide friends from Alaska to the lower 48 are now using them. Even my Taxidermist!!!!

Unbelievably Sharp!
This knife works wonderfully for what it was designed to do. Its not meant to be a hard-use, bushcraft-type knife, which can handle prying, batoning, etc... I have other knives for that. This knife was designed to skin game, and at that, it excels. So far, Ive used the knife on rabbits and squirrels. It works so well, my father wants one of his own! Ive also dressed two deer with it, and other than separating joints, this is the only knife I used. Blades last a long time as long as you use it as intended. My wife decided to use it for carving a pumpkin this fall and couldnt stop talking about how sharp it was. Highly recommended (by all family members)!

The Piranta is a game changer
The Piranta is a game changer.  With the replacement blades its always scary sharp. Youll never have to stop mid-skinning/butchering to sharpen again.The replacement blades mean you dont have to carry a sharpening set.  This, coupled with the lightweight nature of the knife means you can literally shave around a pound out of your pack.  Eliminating that amount of weight and space is really considerable when you bivouacking. The piranta zips through hide making gutting, skinning, and butchering a snap.If theres a downside to the Havalon Piranta, I havent found it.

Best all around knife...period
Used it for everything from hiking to hunting, to around the house. Hell, Ive even used it in the kitchen. Its small, light, and strong. Im surprised how strong the blades are for as thin as they are are. I bought a package of the newer ""heavier duty"" blades but havent had to use them yet.If you are going to carry one knife this should be it.They could charge twice as much and Id buy it again. Even the replacement blades are fairly priced. Their shipping prices are also very fair, and they ship fast. Good product, good company. What else do you need to know. Just buy it already!

BEST HUNTING KNIFE EVER
I am not a very good knife sharpener so I find that this knife is the best knife I have ever owned.  When the blade becomes dull I just replace it with a new blade.  I use my knife for cleaning birds all the way up to cleaning and skinning elk.  I can gut, skin and quarter an elk all with one blade.  By far the best hunting knife I have ever owned.

Havalon Piranta
When I 1st purchased the knife I have to admit I was skeptical. It did not take long before i was won over by its usefulness. I only carry the Piranta everyday now which is saying something as I own a rather extensive knife collection. Buy the knife and a box of 100 replacement blades and you will be set for a long while. I recently skinned 2 deer on 1 replacement blade my hunting partner was so impressed he bought one the next day.. Buy it dont look back!

I have owned this product for 3 years and have bought several for gifts. This is the real deal and I will never own another knife. I have used it on bear, deer, squirrels, ducks, geese, coyotes, and pheasants. Worked great for all of them. Only con I have is that it takes a little practice to get used to the sharpness. Be careful.

I chucked the Buck
I had a great knife from Buck Knives that was easy to use and extremely sharp.  Over time though, it got tougher and tougher to keep that factory-sharp edge.  I never got to the point where I was ready to toss it but I longed for the early days.  On a whim, I ordered the Piranta.  I decided to get the orange because there were a couple of times I dropped that camoed Buck knife in the dark and wasted time hunting around for that thing.  After using the Piranta on several white-tail deer, the Buck has been relegated to the tougher blade-dulling tasks.  Thats what they mean by having the right tool for the right job!

The best knife
I have been hunting scene I was 4, shot my first deer when I was 6. This is the best knife I have every used! I live in Alaska, and when it comes to cutting up big game or small game this is the knife my husband and I carry. I love how light it is. When Goat hunting and sheep hunting when weight is an issue you cant beat it. Take 20 extra blades it still wont weigh as much another skinning knife. I grew up hunting and doing taxidermy on the side. So I want to be extra careful with my capes and meat.  You cant beat a scalpel blade and to have it on a knife handle it just feels right.  I wont go hunting without it. I can skinn a moose in half the time with this knife. And when its 20 below outside you dont want to mess around.

Great knive and blades for backpacking as it is really light, the only thing is taking the blade off, you need a leatherman or some sort of pliars to pull it off or risk cutting yourself if you try to pull it off by hand.

Saves so much time. Dont have to sharpe
The piranta is a little short for large animals. I have used it on 3 elk. It was much faster than the old fashioned hunting knives. Just received my new Baracuta. I have not use it yet but looks like it will help on elk and fish. The only con for both of these knives is the replacement of blades. I just carry my Leatherman and the problem is solved. Great products.

Great Knife
Last fall we downed 3 elk.  I had just purchased my Piranta.  My hunting buddy was using a traditional knife.  I had 2 elk gutted and skinned before he has his gutted.  He borrowed my knife and absolutely loved it (he bought one on the way home).  Get one NOW, you cant go wrong.

"No sharpeners needed"
This is the best knife I have ever owned. Lightweight and extremely sharp. I am so glad I no longer have to worry about sharpening a knife in the middle of a skinning job.

Everyone should own one!
This knife is great, I really like the interchangable blades. It cuts super easily, the blade can be a little flimsy if you are not careful. Its not meant for cutting through bone or twisting, but does the job if you know what your doing.

Excellent Skinning Knife
Excellent knife!  Have used to skin several deer and knife has made process much faster. Blades are very easy to replace and you never have to worry about sharpening a knife again.-Would like to see a thicker blade made to avoid breaking the blade when cutting around bone.

Really. Best knife ever.
This knife fits in your pocket and hand perfectly. Its so sharp. Cuts like a hot knife through butter. This is the only knife I need anymore.

Decent little skinning knife
I was able to use this knife on both a mule deer and an elk this season.  It seemed to handle the deer much better than the elk.  I had 2 different blade types that I tested.  The standard blade and the shorter #22 blunt tip blades.  I preferred the shorter blades, as they seemed to be tougher and last longer.  Both kept a good edge, unless you started to cut through the actual hide of the animal.  In the future, Ill be trying out the #22 blades with the sharp tip, as I think that would be the best combo for me.  The knife worked great for skinning the hide back from the meat and also for de-boning the meat, after the quarters were removed.  Its not ideal for any joint work or cutting through thick hide (especially on elk).  With bloody hands, the blades can sometimes be hard to change out.  Be sure and have dry hands when trying to swap these out.  Id recommend it to others with that kind of description.

I really appreciate how sharp the blades are
Got this knife in a hunting kit. I had Wyoming knife fresh out of the package. The plastic handle snapped. This one though did an entire moose. Several blades snapped but it held its own.

Best skinning knife I have ever used
I purchased this knife a local sporting goods store after seeing in in an archery magazine. I did not shoot anything so I did not use it for gutting. I did skin two deer for my neighbor with just one blade and I a pretty sure I could do one more before changing the blade. I just bought one for my brother in law for Christmas and I am going to get the Barracuta before next season. I think I will then be able to retire all my other knives. I have never been so pleased with a knife and wish I had a Piranta and Barracuta years ago!
