I had almost given up looking for a quality filet knife. I finally bought this filet knife on Amazon after I saw it at a finer knife store in my area, and was able to comparison shop by actually holding it and seeing all its qualities. It's made by Buck Knives, long time makers of safe, reliable, and durable hunting, fishing and sport knives. It is large sized (almost 10 inch blade), yet weighs only 5+ oz. I like it's rubberized anti-slip grip and stainless steel finger guard for assured safety. This is important when handling slimy fish. It is made with a titanium coated steel blade, but I get the feeling that the blade, though flexible, may snap if bent. This is why I gave it only a 4 star. It comes with a nice plastic sheath with belt clip and best of all an unconditional lifetime warranty. I didn't see any filet knife superior than this for the price.
