Best fillet knife

Recommended Posts

Rick. Look into investing in a Work Sharp knife sharpener. Puts a pro edge on a knife in no time flat and easy to use. Pick your friends more wisely. LOL.

When it comes down to it the best fillet knife is one that is sharp and stays that way. Most require occasional sharpening or "tuning up" if you are using them regularly.....there is no "miracle knife"... just some that are better made than others and hold an edge longer when sharpened properly.

Victorinox and Dexter Russell are both excellent and they both hold an edge real well

That was a good read. Lot of preference. Couldn't start a new thread, what are your favorite hook files and techniques? Mine is underwater and want to replace it. Dicks had none, *ass pro had china or stones. Mine looked like 2 chainsaw files in a plastic holder I kept in the boat for touch ups. I have an old flat file I use during tv commercials on the end table at home. What will last? I'll put a wrist band on it.

I also have a 10" dexter.... Great knife!! Sharp and flexible. Japanese steel!! Really holds an edge. I sharpen each time I use..... It is SHARP. would recommend to anyone and cant beat the price. IMO, the best value electric fillet knife Is the American Angler..... Gears, transmission, and driveline are all metal so it is built to last. Also, blades are made by Ginsu. A couple models come with 3-5 blades to choose from depending on the size of your catch. Its a very sturdy and effective knife. Much, Much better than the 2 twisters and hamilton beach I have burned out.

I have tons of knives and I use my bubba blades for everything! Any knife can be sharpened till you can shave with it. Most good knife manufacturers make several sizes and different flexes to suit your needs, but there is no better handle on the market for big hands and no handle that is easier to get a grip on when your hand is slippery.

I"ve had the cutco for about 20yrs.    Send it back every winter for a free factory sharpening.   Keeps a great edge all season.   No complaints here.  it's been a good one.

Just got my Cutco and used it for the first time on a batch of crappies. Never used a knife that sharp before. I almost bled out from nicking my finger with it.

I have a Randall fillet knife I have had for 30 years plus. Holds an edge better than any knife I have owned. Cuts right through the ribs no problem.

I must be the only one who is not satisfied with the cutco knife. Biggest disappointment ever. Haven't sent it back but going to. Must be a Monday or Friday knife. Drove by the place in Olean not too long ago. A business in a building that impressive should know what they are doing. I have friends who have cutco kitchen knives and love them. Guess I best get moving and send it in
