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.
  • Cut like butter
  • Great grip
  • none

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.
  • Ergonomic, non slip grip
  • Excellent, balance and feel in the hand
  • Coated, flexible, razor sharp blade that keeps an edge
  • High quality sheath
  • watch those fingers if you're not a filet pro yet. Wear some filet gloves!!
