Fast forward to 2018, I am again in need of a hunting knife that is small and works well for any task. So I set about to re-create the Hunter Companion in a smaller configuration and newer super-steels.
I have tested this knife for several months and have butchered many of our meat/farm animals with it... I am very pleased with the results. The CPM-S35VN version of this steel has butchered several dozen chickens/ducks/geese, and is still as sharp as the day I made it.
