Heirloom Knife for First Born?

I found out recently that I'm going to be a dad. I'm beyond excited! Literally words fail to describe how I feel.

Anyway, one of the things I want to do is buy an heirloom quality fixed blade knife that is both beautiful and functional to hand down to this little person when the time is right. I know, I'm a sentimental sod, but it is what it is.

I'm looking for a hunting knife, primarily deer, and it wont be used for camping/bushcraft.

What would you all recommend I look at?

Thanks fellas!

Congratulations Dad!

My feeling on both knives and firearms is: if they aren't used they are useless. Heirloom doesn't really compute other than: it CAN be passed down because it lasted long enough.

His first pocket knife might matter more to him, especially if you give it to him. Or that first gut hook if you take him hunting. Or a filet knife if fishing. Maybe even a redneck scaler made out of bottle caps you made together.

The knife you used forever and gave to him... now THAT'S an heirloom.

Pick any useful US-made knife with a decent carbon steel blade and good tempering on the spine.
