We asked fishing guide and knife maker Russ Kommer to come up with a line of affordable fillet knives that we could take pride in and put the CRKT brand on. Each one has a flexible 5Cr15MoV stainless steel blade with an extended tang that reaches nearly to the butt of the grip. For improved performance, we hand-grind scallops into the blades to create air pockets so the fillets won't stick to the blades as you cut, a feature normally found only on much more expensive slicing knives. The handles are molded TPR with a fishnet texture and a lanyard hole. Each size comes with an injection molded polypropylene sheath, fitted to grip the knife securely, with belt loops and plenty of drain slots.
