Knives are different just as people are. A knife that works for you may not work for me. It’s all about how you feel and what kind of knife best suits you. Some people are left handed meaning that although they may want to try out some knives, they may just not work for them.
I personally love the Wushof Flexible Fillet Knife. It’s made in Germany and it comes with a lifetime warranty from the manufacturers. It has a very narrow blade that is great when filleting both small and large fish. Its flexible design is good for moving around small bones in fish without agonizing about breaking them. The knife’s blade is made of high carbon stainless steel alloy and it very easy to sharpen. The handle cannot easily break because it’s made from composite material with a very smooth finish.
The Ergo Chef Pro Series 7.5 is also another great knife. This knife is very flexible and it’s really great for fish filleting. It has a thin blade and a tapered tip that lets you skillfully remove bones from a fish very fast. Although the blade is very thin, it’s strong and durable. The handle is great and easy to work with, and comfortable so you do not strain your hands or wrist.
I have also tried the 7-in. Precision Series Slicing Knife by Calphalon and I must say it is a great knife too! Its handles are uniquely in built and they are labeled so you can easily pick it from a bunch of cutlery. This knife’s blades stay sharper for longer periods when compared to other types of fillet knives and they deliver excellent performance when filleting your fish. It’s especially good if you are filleting big fish although it does an excellent job on small fish.
If you regularly cook whole fish, picking a good fillet knife is critical so as to avoid any kitchen accidents, you can find more top recommendations at inmykitchen.org. A good fillet knife must have a very comfortable handle that can be gripped even when the knife is slippery and a top notch steel blade with good edge retention. This is a knife you always want to stay razor shape.
