Havalon Knife Review by Aron Snyder of Rokslide

The Havalon Piranta Edge weighs 2.2 ounces with a 60XT blade attached, and if you add 4 extra blades, you’re still less than 3 total ounces. This will take away a potential 9 ounces of total pack weight for under $40. The weight savings alone is a huge bonus, but the time it takes to swap out the replaceable skinning blades, should also be taken into consideration. I’ve been using these for a while now, but changing out a blade in less than 10 seconds is about average and that saves precious time on the mountain when trying to get your game cooled down as fast as possible.

In the last 4 seasons, I’ve personally broken down 104 big game animals with the Piranta and Baracuta. In that time, I’ve narrowed down the amount of blades that are needed for each specific game animal. These are general, but it will give you a decent idea of the amount of blades needed for your next hunt....
