Why is it that most fish fillet knives are so short? My father claims that the other fillet knives I sell are too short for all the big fish he catches, so Dad, this knife is for you. Filleting delicate fish or preparing carpaccio is easier with this extra thin, flexible blade. A beautiful knife. Smaller grip for fine work, and same comfortable and nearly indestructible grip and razor-sharp hardened stainless steel edge as the rest of the classic line. German forged steel quality for a lifetime of use!
