Guide Review - Rapala Fish 'N' Fillet Knife, 7 1/2 Inch
This is the knife I use on every trip. I do have a custom knife, but this one is the work horse. I cut bait, line, hooks out - just about anything with it and it keeps coming back. I like the fleible, narrow blade that allows me to have very neat and clean filets. This knife has been around for quite a while and is one of the most popular. When you use one, you can see why. I use this knife for all my flounder cleaning. The blade is light enough to not cut through the flounder's bones, and yet flexible enough so that I get all of the meat on the filet. The base of the knife blade is heavy enough for the tougher rib cages on larger fish, and cuts right through. This is the knife I would take on every fishing trip.
