Types of knives used to butcher a deer?

When butchering a deer with either a fillet or boning knife, it is important to know the difference in blade shape, size and sharpness. A fillet knife has an elongated (sharp) blade that allows for clean cuts through meat like butter. However, when cutting through bone this type of knife will not be as efficient because it is designed more for precision than power. The boning knife on the other hand is great for breaking down whole animals with its short curved blade that provides excellent control over bones and joints while still being able to cut through meat efficiently.
