My home of Wisconsin is a big deer hunting state. As such, I see just about everything used in hunting, fishing and camping.
As for fixed blades, I see lots of Buck 102s and 105s. I think the 102 is probably the best fixed blade for deer ever made in its price range. It's sharp, low maintenance, strong, traditional and the perfect length.
To that end, the Buck 110 is a great folder. Usually during the hunting season this knife is even discounted in price and always a great buy.
I just started seeing another very good folder.
Gerber has a drop-point Gator made from 154-CM. I've sharpened two of them, and they are sharp and nicely priced considering the materials.
