I picked up a new skinning knife and gave it the first test this weekend. It's an A.G. Russell Woodswalker. Link here The steel is reletively soft and it takes an edge nicely. A good blade shape and length. The handle is comfortable and easy to work and it's only $20. EDIT: Fixed the link. The knife I'm talkiing about is about 1/4 the way down the page. Looks like this.
