Innovation that takes your catch from the water to the frying pan in record time. This fishing knife will transform your tackle box forever. Designed by Alaska fishing guide, Russ Kommer, this blade breaks the mold for traditional fillet knife design. Most fillet knives rely on a symmetrical blade grind for cutting, but what Russ did was apply a hollow grind ton the topside and a flat grind on the bottom. This makes your fish fillets lift and float off the topside while the bottom side is gliding and not digging into the skin. The Triple-Point ™ serrations make quick work of bones, fins and gristle. The glass filled nylon handle is grippy and ergonomic. A glass filled nylon sheath keeps the blade safe in your tackle box.
I swear by CRKT knives and own well over a dozen.I have found they are the best knife for the price at the fillet table. They not only feel right but also hold an edge even when cutting thru bones. I would rate most of them a five. The knife seems to not bend enough when I apply a Large amount of force to feel and ride on the bones as I remove the fillets from the fish. It does do a good job of skinning the fish though.

At $28.99 this blade is an awesome value. CRKT will not have much competition at this price point because I have not found a better $29.00 blade.
This blade has been a pleasure to use on white bass, catfish, and a few crappie.
I will buy another if this Big Eddy just to have in case I lose this one.

Hello - I was lucky enough to receive two of these for Christmas 2010 (duplicate gifts). Put one in my fishing vest and one in the knife block in my kitchen. Both were razor-sharp when I started using them - was disappointed to see they were Taiwan-made. Both took an edge very easily with a novaculite stone, easy to touch up before/after a hard day's work. My only complaint is that one knife shattered when I tip-flexed it - luckily, no one was nearby. I prefer this model to the 6" rapala fillet knives I've used since I was a kid. Will buy another soon - tight lines
