Columbia River Knife and Tool Big Eddy II Fillet - Combo Edge with Sheath
Russ Kommer, gifted knifemaker and hunting and fishing guide, came up with the breakthrough blade grind that puts our Big Eddy at the head of the class. Traditionally, fillet knives have had a symmetrical grind. After many hours of filleting 40-pound Alaska Salmon with the great skill and care required, the answer for a vastly improved fillet knife came to Russput a hollow grind on the top side of the blade and a flat grind on the bottom.
After making and rigorously testing a custom version and proving how well the concept worked, Russ granted CRKT the exclusive rights for the production models.
The Razor-Sharp 420J2 stainless steel blade features Russ's high hollow grind on the top of the blade, which creates an air pocket to lift and "float" fillets off, while the flat taper ground side glides smoothly across the skin. Triple-Point Serrations help you cut through gristle, bones and fins.
The unique Twin-Fused handle is a rigid, high-impact polypropylene core wrapped with a soft, comfortable checkered Kraton grip for a firm, safe hold. Its streamlined sheath is injection-molded for long wear and stylish utility.
The polypropylene lanyard adds extra convenience. Kommer's Big Eddy adds special ease and speed of filleting to the quality of the world's finest filleting knivesall at a remarkable price.

I haven't had a chance to use the knife yet, I do love the feel of the blade and the edge geometry of the blade. Striper season starts very soon so it will get lots of use!
It is a very nice knife! You can't go wrong with a CRKT!
To big for my taste.
This knife is probably the best fillet knife Iâve every used! Itâs so sharp, the ease in which it cut the fillets off flounder was hard to believe. There is only one downside, itâs steel and Iâm using it in a saltwater environment, big problem..
