If so what has been your experience with this set and are they worth the money. The one I looked at the other day was about 40 bucks.

40 bucks for a set of meat cutting knives is a joke. Might as well buy a few P-38 can openers. I process wild game during the seasons. I'd recommend a couple of boning knives, a 12 inch steak knife, a boning hook, a steel, a fine grade shapening stone & a dedicated skinning knife. I prefer the Forschner products. If you would be interested I'l give you the product numbers. Or, I could take a few pics and send them to you. You would spend a few more bucks but, if you are going to do the job get the tools that are designed for it. Buying those gimmickery sets are like trying to loosen a nut with pliers instead of using the proper wrench.

i own a set and i like them for the money. yea its cheaper than others but im also a poor college student. Last year i used it to cut up a doe and i thought it worked great and it got the job done. I did have one handle break on me on one of the knives and i took it back and they gave me a new set and have yet to have one break. So really it all depends on if you wanna spend money on a nice set or one thats cheaper and will work just fine.

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
