I have a necked 600 I bought a few years ago. The knife is dull on both sides so I want to buy a good one that's sharp & dull .

There are many styles on the market dull, sharp, curved and straight blades. I use a cheap, dull $25 two handled fleshing knife with a slight curve to it which will handle most animals. I want to push the fat off instead of cutting it. If I need to cut anything, I use a sharp knife. Whatever fleshing knife you choose you have to learn how to use that knife. IT's ALL ABOUT TECNIQUE AND LOT"s OF PRACTICE.


The only constant in trapping is change so keep learning.

I started with a cheaper knife and eventually got a necker 600. Used it for a while and it always did the job, mine was sharp on one side and dull on the other. Just got a Steinmeyer parallel knife and really like it. Really comfortable to use, once again itís sharp on one side and dull on the other.

My necked came dull on both sides. It's tough to flesh a coon neck with a dull blade.

I really enjoy my post fleshing knife. High quality steel that is very easy to keep sharp


Gotta live up to the nickname...

X2, my "dull" side is almost sharp though (the way it came)...GREAT KNIFE!!! Even better customer service!

The red handled Wiebe is a surprisingly good knife. I have a Necker 600 and a Steinmeyer, but I reach for the Weibe most often.

I have 2 Steinmeyer knives. His regular and his mini knife. I'm really liking the mini, just fits me better. I made a mistake and bought a necker for my first one. I think the back of a butter knife is sharper. That was a waste of money

I have 2 Necker 600's. Both razor sharp on one side and dull on the other. Bought them both used. Very reasonable but they work so I don't know if I will be switching anytime soon.
