    Field Knifes

    Hi,

    After my first 'proper' go around our club 3D, I discovered how useful a good strong knife is for digging arrows out of posts and back stops!!

    The guys in the club house showed me some nice short and stout hunting/survival/field knifes they had. I was told to get one with a good quality thick blade that also has a pommel end. Parkin was suggested from Amazon, but I can't find one like theirs.

    For the life me, I can't find a knife that fits the bill. I've looked at a load of UK shop websites and waded through 1000's of knifes, nothing seems to fit the bill or is like what the guys in my club have.

    I'm looking for a thick short blade with pommel end in a pouch to fit onto my belt suitable for digging out arrows (not from living trees!) My budget is a VERY begrudging 80 max!

    Could anybody help me find one by directing me to a shop or item?

    Thanks,
    Rob.

    I just use a screwdriver. Don't need to go all macho.

    As practical as a screwdriver would be, it's not exactly 'in keeping' with the whole 'woodsy' kinda vibe when walking through the trees.
    I'd like a small "macho" knife as it would have other uses from time to time

    There are good reasons for using a screwdriver - the number of arrows I've seen damaged by knives is numerous, and knives are expensive. I'd rather spend the money on my shooting equipment. My trusty screwdriver is good for a lot of things as well as arrow extraction, and raises no eyebrows when I travel overseas to shoot.

    I'm not sure what kind of pommel end you're looking for but something like the Mora Robust should fit the bill at a fraction of the budget if you're not a knife snob or offended by plastic. I've got a very similar model except with a green handle and sheath. I've used it several times to prise arrows out, to the extent of hammering on the butt end with a mallet and the knife suffered no damage at all. Not with huge force but not what you'd call gentle either. It has a very sharp carbon steel blade, not stainless (so keep it oiled to avoid rust).

    Look up 'Wrecking Knife/Chisel' around 15 and made for a tough life.
