Although it is not impossible, it would be most difficult to utilize only one knife to process a deer from the field to the freezer and do it with the efficiency of 2 select knives. I use 2 knives to seal the deal. one of them is most ideal for freeing the anus during the field dressing procedure and for doing most if not all of the butchering and boning. the other knife does ok for preliminary skinning and field dressing, the blade, however is much longer than I would like. It would be much nicer if it where only half as long. see attached below.
Interesting note, the boning knife was used by my dad for filleting fish some 40 years ago. I talked with a sales rep from Cutco at the Wisconsin deer and turkey show last spring and he informed me the knife was a first production knife in that model and was over 50 years old.
