Great Knife
Had an opportunity to clean up a few blackfish. These fish have a tendency of dulling a knife really quick.This knife made short work of cleaning 20 fish without needing a touch up. Very pleased.
ProsCut like butter Great grip

Once you go Bubba, you'll never go back!!
I had always purchased cheaper filet knives that did the job functionally, but those knives always required lots of additional sharpening and were of the eventually disposable kind. I look back and think how foolish I was to try and scrimp on filet knives when I think of how much money I spent on those knives now that I have some Bubba's.
The knives have and excellent grip and feel. High quality steel with just the right amount of flex. I purchased the 7inch first and then after using it purchased the 9 inch too. I generally keep Striped bass in the 15 to 25 pound range and usually, but not always let anything over the go so they can hopefully grow into big trophy fish someday. These knives make short order of those fish and are also excellent for doing the trimming of the red fat because they are razor sharp and flexible. I actually use filet gloves just to be on the safe side.
ProsErgonomic, non slip grip Excellent, balance and feel in the hand Coated, flexible, razor sharp blade that keeps an edge High quality sheath
Conswatch those fingers if you're not a filet pro yet. Wear some filet gloves!!

Lives up to the hype
A little pricey but worth it, super sharp, great handle and it does not slip when wet, the non stick blade is another plus. I would buy another.

The Only Fillet Knife You Will Ever Need
After a recommendation from the Captain of the FV that I go out on regularly, I purchased both the Bubba 7" & 9" Flex Fillet Knives for myself ...I even bought these two knives as gifts for the Captain and the Captain's son who is also a licensed Captain. The Bubba Blade Shirt is a must have if your using one of their knives...
ProsHigh quality knife. Rubber no slip grip. Scalpel like sharpness & quality sheath. Flexibility to easily work around bones to get all of the meat from the fish when filleting. Price.
ConsNone.
