Bought as a gift which was well received. Recipient really liked the light weight and flexibility of the knife. Handle fit well in the hand.
Very thin and flexible filet trout with ease
Excellent and very sharp knife
I bought the knife to fillet chicken breasts and it works great!
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.
This is a quality knife. Leather sheath is nice too. Would be a great gift. I won't get to use it until next year but I am looking forward to it.
I have one and use it all the time. I sent one as a gift.
The most durable knife in the filleting industry,looks great and does an excellent job.This is my 10th knife and everyone that I gave this knife to love it.
Great little knife. I needed it for gift.
I needed the knife to complete a collection. It was exactly what I wanted. The quality and workmanship lived up to the Schrade tradition.
This is one great knife, all fishermen should have one or two in their tackle box or boat. I'm getting ready to order two more so my friends can help me clean their harvest.
Very handsome piece,quality of the old Uncle Henry we are used to.
This is a very good knife. In fact this is the the third one that I have bought. The 1st two need a good sharpening.
This is the best feeling knife I've ever used in the last 10 years! You can really feel the bones under the knife and the nice narrow thin blade bends easily to conform to the shape of the fish.
This knife was purchased as a gift. He loves it!! I bought it to take fishing and he is very happy. Good enough for me!! Thank you!
I have been looking for an "Uncle Henry's Stag Handle Fillet Knife" for a while. I understood why I was having trouble finding one when I read that the Schrade knife company had an ownership structure change. Then I found out that the knives were being made in China, and I was not sure I wanted to spend my money on Chinese merchandise. I decided to give it a try, and so far have been very satisfied with the quality of craftsmanship and fit of the knife, and the sheath. I have filleted several fish with it and was surprised with the sharpness of the blade and the nice flex that I got with it. So far I am very satisfied with this knife, but time will tell how it holds up.
If I only had one knife it would be the Schrade Uncle Henry steel head fillet knife. I not only use it for fish, but it is great for meat as well. I bought my first Uncle Henry fillet knife about 12 years ago at a fishing show and am so glad that the your website carry's this out standing knife. It makes a great gift to not only fishermen but also anyone who cooks.
It was just what my Dad wanted and he has not had any complaints about it thus far.
I watched an Uncle Henry being used by our guide, fishing The Lake of the Woods in Minnesota and Ontario and absolutely had to have it. I purchased two, one for myself the for my son. I have since been fishing in Northwest Ontario. I cleaned approximately 50 walleye for our party, shore lunch and limit to bring home. The knife had great flexibility and did a great job! The Uncle Henry is probably my 5th filleting knife and by far the best. Once it is sharpened, it stays sharp with a few swipes with steel. I'd buy it again but I'll never lose this one. Thanks Schrade!
I have bought many fillet knives in my life but this is by far the BEST! I like a long blade. It is flexible enough to fillet and skin the fish that I catch. Thank you very much for the product!
I use it fillet the fish and it is nice.
Uncle Henry's filet knife isn't new to me, my first filet knife, wich I had for seberal years was stolen from me, since I have used other knives to filet my waleyes and othe fish. Some worked fairly well but nothing came even close to uncle Henry'steelhead knife. Thanks for making the best knife available.
These knives are the best.
This is my second Uncle Henry's filet knife, with the Staglon Hamdle. My first one was stolen from our fish camp. This is undoubtly the best filet knife I've ever used, the fheft made me realize the quality, when I had to use another brand. Thanks for your effort in making such a high quality knife.
I enjoyed using my Uncle Henry filet knife it was certainly the best filet knive I've ever used, I lost the first Schrade-Uncle Henry filet knife, it was stolen from my home during a burlgary, I guess the thief knew the best when he saw it. Thanks for making a great knife. It makes Walleye fishing and cleaning even better.
Professional company, made the transaction secure but easy. I had no surprises.
I have one of these knives that was manufactured in the USA. It is a step above the Chinese models that I purchased from your store. However, they are still a fine fillet knife; the blade is just not of the same quality.
This is a very nice knife, very comfortable to use, but doesn't seem to hold an edge very well.
This knife is as sharp as they come.
I bought my first Uncle Henry fillet knife in the early 90's. I was really impressed with the out of the package sharpness, flexibility and ability to hold an edge. I unfortunately left that knife in a fish cleaning house. I bought a second Uncle Henry fillet knife in 2015. That knife wasn't sharp out of the package. I had to rip through fish rather than slice through them. Also the knife lacked the flexibility of my first Uncle Henry. I was really disappointed in the second knife.
I purchased this knife to replace one that got broken. The one I replaced I had for over twenty five years and it was a great knife. The new one is a very poor substitute cor the original. The blade is about half the thickness and if flexed does not spring back. Also the sheath is made from some kind of pressed together leather with very poor stitching. I am not happy with the new knife.
I have been a fan of Schrade but am very disappointed that they are now made over seas. You take the product over seas and tell me the quality is the same and yet the prices have not gone down but up. What about "3rd and 4th generation craftsmen"???? Where is YOUR loyalty. I am truly sorry but I will search for a product made in MY country that supports MY neighbors jobs and my family. I have learned that the dollar has power but no loyalty. That is left up to the people in our country.........including business professionals.
I have received the knife and one week later the knife broke.
