I currently use a Buck knife 119, I believe. I am not thrilled with the blade or lack of holding, sharpening an edge. I am thinking of a Ka-Bar Mark 1. any opinions on that particular knife?

Knife size

I don't know the size of your knife,but after field dressing more than 60 deer I like a 3 and 1/2 inch blade,especially when you get both hands and the knife up in the neck area to sever the windpipe and pull the organs out without cutting yourself.

I'm with BB, no experience with K-bar. After building some new knives this past year, I think I will try one of the new ones this year. They are all fixed blades.
