Big Eddy™ Fillet Knives feature Russ Kommer’s unique

hollow/taper grind that “floats” fillets up and off.

Russ Kommer, gifted knifemaker and hunting and fishing guide, came up with the

breakthrough blade grind that puts our Big Eddy™ at the head of the class. Traditionally,

fillet knives have had a symmetrical grind. After many hours of filleting 40-pound Alaska

Salmon with the great skill and care required, the answer for a vastly improved fillet

knife came to Russ—put a hollow grind on the top side of the blade and a flat grind on

the bottom.

After making and rigorously testing a custom version and proving how well the

concept worked, Russ granted Columbia River Knife & Tool® (CRKT®) the exclusive

rights for the production models.

The Razor-Sharp 420J2 stainless steel blade features Russ’s high hollow grind on the

top of the blade, which creates an air pocket to lift and “float” fillets off, while the flat

taper ground side glides smoothly across the skin. Triple-Point™ Serrations help you cut

through gristle, bones and fins.

The unique Twin-Fused™ handle is a rigid, high-impact polypropylene core wrapped

with a soft, comfortable checkered Kraton® grip for a firm, safe hold. Its streamlined

sheath is injection-molded for long wear and stylish utility.

The polypropylene lanyard adds extra convenience. Kommer’s Big Eddy adds special

ease and speed of filleting to the quality of the world’s finest filleting knives—all at

remarkable prices. The Big Eddy 3008 has an MSRP of $28.99, while the larger Big

Eddy II 3010 has an MSRP of only $29.99.

To add retail awareness of these remarkable features, full-color retail clampacks are

available for both sizes of Kommer’s Big Eddy as 3008C and 3010C.
