Ok so I received this on friday and used that as an excuse to go on a fishing trip out of a local cattle boat ocean trip. We had a great time and caught a multitude of various keeper fish ranging from 1/2# to 8# fish. When the deck hands started to clean the fish on the trip back I asked the guy cleaning my fish to use my knife. I explained why I wanted him to use my knife, for this review, and he thought it was a great idea. Initially he thought that the blade didn't have enough width and that it would not have the backbone to get through the bigger fish. He shortly changed his mind. In fact he asked to use it to clean the rest of the fish on the boat. I had no problem with that as this is suppose to be a review of the knife and how it works, how better than to allow a deck hand to clean 100+ fish and get his honest opinion. So after about 15-20 fish the blade needed to be honed on a stone, which is not unusual for these guys and their high quality $100+ knifes they use. They did tell me that it took the edge on the stone quicker with less passes over the stone then their knifes normally do. All in all they loved the knife and especially loved the tip that curved on the end for removing flesh close to the tail or skin close to the end of the cut. The only negatives they had were the size of the handle and there was no where to put your thumb when really had to turn or push the blade through bone or a heave piece of flesh. For their use they would have liked a larger handle but when I used it last night and this morning to finish cleaning my fillets and prepping a pork butt for they smoker the handle was fine for me. I am a large guy, 6'5" over 300# and I have really large hands. I love this fillet knife, I will be buying more to put in various tackle boxes and hunting packs.

I used it 3 times since I got it to fillet about 25 fish. Works like magic. Blade is long enough to slide and peel the fish skin. The handle is rubber/plastic grip and I'm not sure how long it would last until the blade comes off. I had knifes like this before and they usually break off after 5 years. For now, it's a good knife.

This knife makes easy work of skinning a fish, really an amassing boost to my abilities.

A buddy of mine uses the OE fish and bone for boning out elk in WY. Last trip up he tossed me his old one that had a couple of elk across it, he said try it. Well we just got in from a 7 day archery hunt, and this little knife was used for everything from cutting potatoes to cutting rope (no boning cause someone couldn't shoot) it held a great edge. I did sharpen it a couple times more out of habit than necessity. From now on my high dollar blades will stay home and I'll pickup half a dozen of these. I'd rather break or lose a 20 dollar knife that works than a 75 dollar knife that has gotten me into the habit of sharpening every chance I get.
