There are a variety of hunting knives and each is designed for specific tasks.
The Bowie hunting knives are heavy-duty all round knives with a blood groove for field dressing game. The drop-point knife is designed for small game and birds.
A Skinning knife has a wide blade and fine dge. Boning knives can do double duty as a skinning knife, but only if the blade is kept sharp. Gutting knives have a second blade at the tip with a hook to prevent snagging.
Hunting knives should never be used as multi-purpose knives. This will dull and damage the blades.
