Fillet knife prices have an insanely widespread, from the two-dollar special in the bucket on the check-out counter at the tackle shop to $200 semi-custom pieces made of stainless super steels and exotic handles of sculpted G10 or Antler and Bone. There are so many fillet knives to pick from all with varying prices, it is enough to put an angler in analysis paralysis. At least now EGO Fishing has an answer for anglers with their new Kryptek Fillet Knife, a solid and sharp option that won’t dent your bank account at around twenty bucks. A blend of a kitchen cutlery quality blade, with a workman-like utilitarian design combined to be the ultimate go-to fillet knife.
The new multi-purpose Kryptek Fillet Knife has a titanium-coated steel blade, made for great corrosion protection which is especially vital in saltwater environments. The grip of the fillet knife has been rubberized for a No-Slip-Grip that makes sure you have a firm hold on your fillet knife even when wet or slimy. That way anglers are only cutting the fillets off a fish and not themselves. The EGO’s Kryptek Fillet Knife comes bundled with a poly sheath to protect the knife edge, as well as your hands. The fillet knife comes in at a good 11.5 inches, a great size for being a versatile blade for a wide range of fish species and sizes. Make space in the knife block for the new EGO Kryptek Fillet Knife and maybe grab one for the boat too considering the price.
Looks like a head-on competitor for the Bubba Blade. I have heard decent reviews of that one, and regardless, they sell a metric boat-ton of them.
