    knife recommendations?

    Having done my first full field shoot including unmarked, one of my kit difficencies is a suitable knife for getting arrows out of wood.

    Obviously this isn't something I plan to do on a regular basis, but as the Tom Lehrar song goes "be prepared!"

    After the wonderful run down of what i should be looking for in a new pair of pins (that work amazingly) I'm hoping for something similar to that when it comes to knives.

    Thanks in advance

    I've seen people recommend a flat head screwdriver over a knife, they're a bit thicker and sturdier, and less chance of slipping and slicing a finger as you wiggle it about.

    I don't carry anything myself at the moment*, but having used knives and screwdrivers on the target bosses and frames I tend to prefer the screwdriver.



    I did carry a pen knife of which I used the bottle opener to get in besides the arrow and open the hole a bit, except I'm pretty sure my nearly two year old daughter pick-pocketed me and swapped my pen knife for her dummy.

    Flat head screwdriver or a narrow chisel over a knife any day. Ideal for those tricky flat shots. [emoji849]

    Yup, screwdriver every time. I've seen too many shafts damaged by knives.

    Knives are just a bit macho, which is why our field archers all wear them, much to the annoyance of our club member who is a policeman.
    Dodgy when they forget they've got the quiver on (complete with knife) and go shopping at ASDA after shooting
