Best Field Dressing Knife for all Experience levels

No matter who you are, field-dressing big game can be especially challenging if you don’t have the right tool for the job.

How many times have you seen someone…not you of course, use an axe, saw, tree loppers, or God forbid a rock on the back side of a knife blade to separate the pelvic bone for easier removal of the entrails?  Improper use of tools leads to unnecessary injuries, broken equipment, and more often than not, a HUGE mess!  Remember, those coveted inside tenderloins taste much better when not marinated in ruptured bladder or intestines.

The FieldTorq knife is hands-down the winner in the field dressing knife category.  It’s a masterfully designed all-in-one gutting tool that was optimized for cutting pelvic and sternum bones, gut hooking cleanly, and performing all knife functions.  It’s quickly becoming the #1 choice for seasoned professionals and beginners alike. It comes in a lightweight, compact kit that includes the sheath, sharpener, and Torq Assist—which eases bone cutting and prevents nicking the gut.  No other tools are necessary.  Let’s break it down.

Ease of Use

Not only is the FieldTorq knife preferred by experienced professionals, it is also the best field dressing tool for beginners. The FieldTorq knife is an all-in-one tool.  This means you always have the proper tool for the immediate task already in your hand.  All you need to do is flip the knife over to become another optimized tool.  It’s that easy.  For example, holding the FieldTorq knife with the longer blade on top gives you knife functions.  Add the Torq Assist and now you have a bone cutting device that uses leverage like a bottle opener to cut cleanly and easily through bone.  Flip it so the longer blade is on the bottom, and you have a huge gut hook that is, by the way, resharpenable.  And adding the Torq Assist, makes nicking the gut a thing of the past.


Your hunt will often take you far off the beaten path and away from medical professionals.  Even small injuries can become life-threatening without proper medical care.  The FieldTorq knife has non-stabbing, permanent blades that are self-contained, making this knife much safer than any other and supporting the idea that this is the best field dressing knife for beginners and seasoned pros.  Still have questions?  Click the link and find out more about why the FieldTorq knife is the safest field dressing knife.


Finally, the FieldTorq knife is strong and dependable.  It comes with a Lifetime Warranty and holds its edge for many field dressings before resharpening.  It’s the one tool you don’t want to be without!

Bottom line?  The FieldTorq knife is the best field dressing knife for beginners as well as all hunters with a LOT of experience.  It’s easier, safer, and has the strength to cut bone and still hold its edge.   Don’t take our word for it, our reviews speak for themselves – click here.

How do you sharpen the FieldTorq knife?

Proper knife care is an important part of keeping your FieldTorq knife performing properly and safely. A dull blade can be just as, if not more dangerous as a sharp one. After multiple uses, your FieldTorq knife will dull, and you will need to sharpen it with your FieldTorq Sharpener. This may seem like an overwhelming and complicated task, but we promise it is not! How do you sharpen it, you ask? Follow these simple instructions to get your FieldTorq knife back in tip-top condition. Also, check out our sharpening video here!

Step 1

First, grab the sharpening tool that came with your FieldTorq knife.  Avoid using any other sharpener, as it may damage the blade. Also, if you have misplaced your sharpener, you can get a new one here!

Step 2

Hold the knife in your non-dominate hand, so the longer blade is on the bottom.

Step 3

Begin by using the coarse side of the sharpener, labeled with the letter “C”.  Pull the sharpener from the tip of the longer blade to the curve.  Do not apply pressure to the sharpener!  Repetition sharpens the blade, not pressure. Now, turn the sharpener with the same motion as you would turn a key and come out the shorter blade.  Repeat this process six times.

Step 4

Now use the “Fine” side of the sharpener, labeled with an “F”. Make sure to use the same motions as Step 3, starting on the long blade and moving out the shorter blade. Also, repeat this process six times.

Step 4 Label

You did it!

Congrats, your FieldTorq knife is sharpened! Now you can head to the hunt, confident that your FieldTorq knife is ready to go. As always, remember to be cautious and aware of the blades on your FieldTorq knife when resharpening. Sharpening a knife can be dangerous and cause injury. Keep the knife pointed away from you when working on it. Also, remember to move consistently and slowly so you do not slip and injure yourself.

The Safest Field Dressing Knife You’ll Ever Use

Posted on: August 4th, 2021

FieldTorq is an impressive field dressing tool designed to incorporate hide cutting, bone cutting, and skinning functions – much better than a traditional hunting knife. There is one additional  design feature that make this field dressing tool even more unique – safety. Due to its curved design, the FieldTorq is arguably the safest field dressing knife on the market today.

Two Types of Field Dressing Safety.

We are going to break down safety into two separate categories: personal injury safety, and harvest safety, both of which FieldTorq wins in the safest field dressing knife category.

Harvest Safety

When field dressing a deer or other animal, it’s imperative that you avoid making certain mistakes. If you are new to field-dressing large game, you might not be aware of these mistakes.

It all comes down to avoiding critical organs and areas when using a blade. The bladder, colon, large intestines, small intestines, and stomach are all areas that you need to avoid. If you were to puncture the bladder, intestines, or any of these fragile organs, you could release fluids that can result in meat contamination.

The FieldTorq knife has a rounded design with no exposed sharp tips like traditional hunting knives. This design feature lessens the likelihood of cutting into or puncturing these organs. This is particularly important in low light conditions by taking the guesswork out of the process when it’s difficult to see where you are cutting.

Personal Injury

Field dressing a deer can create a cut risk, especially when your hands are cold or you have to reach in with both hands having a knife in one hand.

It doesn’t take much more than a brief distraction like staring at the giant rack or a buddy commenting on the buck’s old war wound for you to end up cutting yourself and causing an emergency in the field.

For the same reason that the FieldTorq knife is the safest field dressing knife in the harvest category, it’s also the safest field dressing knife in the personal injury category. There are no sharp points.  and the cutting blade faces away from you diminishing the cut risk to your hands or fingers.

You can run your hand along all outside edges of this field dressing tool, and you will not get cut. If that’s not a testament to being the safest field dressing knife on the market, nothing is.

Safety is our #1 Priority

We take safety in the field very seriously and that is why we designed the FieldTorq knife the way we did.   You wouldn’t risk sitting in a swaying tree 20 feet above the ground without a safety harness.  Why would you risk it when it comes to your field dressing tools? A FieldTorq knife will get the job done in the blink of an eye and do it safely.  Make the most innovative and safest field dressing knife part of your hunting kit today.

Why FieldTorq Knives are the Best Big Game Field Dressing Tools

big game field dressing tools Field Torq KnifeIf you are not familiar with the design of FieldTorq Knives, you probably think it’s pretty funny looking- like an oversized can opener or something. What is this thing? But when you see the FieldTorq knife in action, it all makes sense. And when you use it for yourself while dressing a deer in the field, you will realize why this thing is the best big game field dressing tools on the market today.


The can opener look is more than just unique. It’s a design that helps make field dressing incredibly quick and easy. You no longer have to use the tip of a knife and pound on it trying to split the pelvic bone. The FieldTorq will split the pelvic bone as well as sternum with reliable  can-opener-like action, making it the only big game field dressing tool to do so, and that’s not all it does!

Multi-Functional Big Game Field Dressing Tool

The ability to make field dressing that efficient is the reason why it is the best big game field dressing tool.  What are you waiting for?


A major design feature of the FieldTorq knife is that you never have to worry about breaking a blade. Many of us have broken the blades of our knives while field dressing deer. Cold temperatures, thin blades, and twisting or bending while under pressure with bones will easily break the tip of a knife. The FieldTorq knife comes with a unique blade cover that protects the longer blade tip while the short stout blade cuts through any bone.

FieldTorq knife blades never need to be replaced. Our blades stay sharp for a very long time, allowing you to field dress literally tons of elk, deer, hogs, antelope, and more.

There are three handle options to choose from as well.
