We understand about fillet knives. Things happen. Sometimes you're on a
tight budget. Sometimes they get dropped and lost. Sometimes you forget
to wash and wipe them down after saltwater use, with really ugly
results. Sometimes they end up in the bottom of the boat, or in someone
else's tackle box. They live a hard life.
So, many fishermen are reluctant to invest in a fine folding fillet
knife like our Kommer Surf' N Turf or our premium Kommer Big Eddy Fillet
Knives. Recognizing these realities, we asked fishing guide and knife
maker Russ Kommer to come up with a line of affordable fillet knives
that we could take pride in and put the CRKT brand on.
Here they are, in three sizes. Each one has a flexible 5Cr15MoV
stainless steel blade with an extended tang that reaches nearly to the
butt of the grip. For improved performance, we hand-grind scallops into
the blades to create air pockets so the fillets won't stick to the
blades as you cut-a feature normally found only on much more expensive
slicing knives. The handles are molded TPR with a fishnet texture and a
Each size comes with an injection molded polypropylene sheath, fitted to
grip the knife securely, with belt loops and plenty of drain slots.
Our Model 3017 features a 7.25" blade. This popular size handles
steelhead, salmon, and walleyes and other large lake and ocean fish.
Even at their value prices, these fillets are covered by the CRKT
Limited Lifetime Warranty. They're just honest affordable knives. Wash
them when you're done, oil them occasionally, and they'll be around for
