Default A good Fillet knife ?

Ok , I have had it . Im ready to bite the blade and buy a good dang fillet knife .
I use it mostly on pork and in the house so rugged is not a must , just somthing that will shave the hair off a flea and also survive some abuse . I know the key is also a good sharpener but you got to have a good blade first .

They sell a pretty decent one in WalMart. I wanna say Rapala brand and some finnish designer. It's cheap, It's ugly, but mine has served me well. I use it one the creek bank or in the kitchen.

About a year ago Francisco, a well reknowned knife enthusiast here at the time, recommended a set of tests with a rather cheap, but really reliable knife called a Mora.

We did a few tests and this Swedish Carbon Steel really did well in several tests. Several of them were sent around the forum and members put them to some individual tests.

The knife was like $10 from the importer and it was easy to resharpen.

The edge wasn't fantastic in edge retention, but it sliced like a razor.

You might want to give them a look as they are inexpensive but are really useful.

Yep yep...i have 2 rapalas one 4 or 5 inch and the other is the long one. They hold an edge and are very flexible. I also have the 8" american angler blade, it has a bit more "backbone" not quite as flexible as the rapalas but holds a good edge.

I've got a Wusthof.



The blade is overly flexible/thin but it will take the skin off a tomato!

I would personally recommend a Grohmann Fillet knife. I have had mine for 3 years now and it`s still sharp as hell. I know a few other people that use Grohmann and they swear by them. Grohmann`s worth looking into they make them 5,6,7 and 8 inch. my 2cent.

Though I don't own their fillet knife, I'd urge you to check Victorinox

http://www.amazon.com/Victorinox-47513-6-Inch-Boning-Fibrox/dp/B000QCNJ3C/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1320723582&sr=8-3

I owned Wusthof and Henckels (both original Solingen Germany cutlery sets) but the cheaper Victorinox out cuts them.
