Way of choosing a good fillet knife:

There are couples of points to find out a good fillet knife for you. I have compiled some points among them and tried to give a brief discussion on them.

  • First of all, you have to consider length the blade. For example, smaller blades are the best choice for small fish and larger blades are suitable for large fish like salmon.
  • Next point you should take care is material of blade. In general, they are made of stainless steel but the variation is in quality. If you buy cheap knife, then there is no doubt that you are purchasing fillet knife that has a low quality blade. I know that branded knives are little bit expensive. Still the investment on buying a good fillet knife will give you profit in return.
  • Now I want to suggest flexibility level of blade. If the blade is not flexible, you won’t get high class performance. Remember that small blade is for small fish and larger blade are large fish.
  • Handle is another important fact to be considered. Because if the handle is slippery and cause injury to your hand then even the finest blade of this planet is nothing but useless. Previously wooden handle was the only choice to the buyer. But now a day, plastic and rubber made handles are replacing it. Because they are less slippery than the wooden ones. In addition, wooden handle soak the bad small of fish.
  • People often try to save money and go for non branded or cheaper filleting knife. I would like to recommend you to go for branded filleting knife even it is more expensive than any other knife available in the market.
