Ultimate Blades for the Ultralight Hunter:

Throw the lightweight P.D.K. (Precision Disposable Kit) into your hunting pack and forget about it—until you drop that 8 pointer. This set of disposable utility hunting razor blades features four (#60) blades with protective plastic sleeves like scabbards (See video below). Each has an ABS plastic handle with an ergonomic and comfortable grip. If one starts to dull, simply toss it in the trash. The kit also comes with a pair of black nitrile disposable gloves. At 12 grams  and less than $7 ea this might be the only knife the average hiker ever needs to carry. Yes, they do come in different colours,

If you do the following search ‘crkt pdk ebay’ you will find them.

These are great little knives. A couple of these (at 16 grams each including the sheath) are going to be living in my hunting daypack. They will easily butcher any deer I harvest.

Another interesting choice,the folding scalpel available in two sizes:

The folding feature is a big  safety improvement and can reduce blade damage between uses as it allows the blade to be folded back into the handle.
The wider hand grip is also more comfortable to hold than a conventional blade handle.
Supplied non-sterile.
Choose the correct size for your blades:
no 3 for blades 10, 11, 12 and 15
no 4 for blades 20, 21, 22, 23 and 24 (shown in photo)
