I have a buck with gut hook that you can get at cabellas all day for right at 50 bucks...Have had it for 11 years now and has cleaned countless deer...Best knife I have ever owned...After a couple deer, finishing the edge with a couple passes does the trick...Holds an edge very good. Anyone who uses it to clean their deer, always comment on how much they like it...
I have been using the outdoor edge swing blade and like it but will admit if I could find the skin cutter side of that blade in a fixed blade knife I would -prefer it. it is difficult to sharpen the reversed curve blade but not impossible. I like that it is made of AUS 8 Stainless which is a bit harder than the standard 440.
I am currently looking into a never blade material with chromium in it that supposedly is the hardest, easiest to sharpen, and most corrosion resistent material currently being used.

I use the cold steel. Mini tack for skinning! By far the sharpest knife I have ever used! They use aux 8 steel for the blade. I got mine last year and I have skinned 4 deer with it and it will still shave the hair on my arm they cost around $30
