For some reason I have this thing about fillet knives. I'm constantly on the lookout for what I would consider the one and only knife I could ever need to fillet fish. The question is which one do you use. I just picked up a Rapala Superflex which I haven't tried yet but seems pretty soft at the tip or getting around bones. Any other you would recommend?
Watch out for that rock!!!........ Oooo.... That's going to leave a mark...
I have a Rapala soft grip and can't complain about it stays pretty sharp for a fillet knife and handles well. Fillet knives are one of those things that you really don't need to spend much money on imo. The steel has to be soft to flex which usually means cheaper stainless steel fits the bill perfectly. I've thought about buying one of these but I probably won't until a lose my rapala or it breaks.
I like a folding fillet knife when going on BWCAW trips. Main reason is just because it packs down smaller. The brand of folder I am presently using is Rapala. I have several fixed blades including Rapala, Leech Lake, Rada, Gerber and Buck brands. Of these I like the Rada and Rapala knives the best.
A year ago I picked up the Knives of Alaska Steelheader and I REALLY have liked it. It's the perfect size, lightweight, good steel, made in the US. The sheath is OK, and does it's job. Check it out. http://www.knivesofalaska.com/item.asp?id=105&r=store%2Easp%3Fc%3D19
I like my older buck fix blade knife, but prefer my Chicago cutlery folding 5" fillet knife for the ease of packing. My fish catching ability doesn't justify a leech lake knife as much as I would like to get one.
