Better than Piranta for pigs
We just did a necropsy on a pig that died in labor ( a vet and myself - I'm a retired "ER doc") and the Edge did a great job. Two days later we skinned out and butchered two 40 pound pigs. One of my friends that helped used his Piranta to start and I used the Edge. After a while he stopped using the Piranta and just used the Edge. He is an experienced pig-hunter and he vows to not carry heavy knives anymore just the Havalon knives. He had been given the Piranta and was surprised how pricy they are, but they are not toys they are tools and good tools are worth good money. I had to keep my eyes on the Edge to make sure it wouldn't "walk" away. Great knife! Great tool! Still sharp after two pigs.
