What is the "best buy" for a decent fillet knife?
Used mostly for Walleye and Perch.
I have an older Rapala... it will not hold an edge very long. I also have an 8" "Old Timer" by Schrade that seems good, but is too long for the smaller fish.

What should I look for...4 or 6 inch? Brand and model?

Budget under $25 preferred.

Thanks for the suggestions. :)

gerber , gander mtn sells them. i have one and prefer it over the rapala. and it has 2 ceramic sticks built into the sheath. electric is nice for the eater eyes but the hogs are another story. had a rapala electric and about burnt it up on 1 limit of big eyes.took it back and got my refund.

My buddy has the Rapala electric knife and his is junk as well. He was filleting a few crappie and it just crapped out. I have an American Angler electric knife that I just love. Picked it up at Wally World on clearance for 6 bucks. My regular knife is a Shrade and it dosn't hold an edge for very long.

JOE W! Haha Whats up?

I have the Rapala electric one and I like it. Ive had it for a little over a year and have filleted probably like 400-500 fish with it. Perch, Bass, Steelhead, one walleye, bluegill. It still works great for me.

The best deal going on fillet knives is at Sam's Club. Back in their commercial restaurant isle, they have a two pack of knives for around $9. One is a fillet knife, the other is a boning knife. I have a couple of them, and have been using them for five years. Everyone that uses them thinks they are some high dollar European fillet knife.

The ones from Sam's Club are great knives. Hetfieldinn turned me on to them a couple of years ago and now I have 3 sets. They hold a good edge and the large handles prevent hand fatigue. I even use them at dear camp to process deer.

Thanks BigV and Het.
My son went to SAMS today and I had him look those up. I was surprised at the value. The best value in knives I've seen anywhere. Amazing... you take the word FISHING out of it and how much less it costs. LOL :D
