Just curious if there is a consensus on what the current best filet knife Brand/model is?
Mine are all fairly old (Buck 123; Schrade Old Timer; Chicago Cutlery 65-S). When the Buck was new it was great but it never held an edge very well, especially considering the light workload it had to endure. The Schrade wasn't much better.
Back in the early 1980's I was fishing on Little Pine Lake near Perham, MN and took my 2 or 3 eyes to the fish cleaning hut. there was a guy with 5 or 6 eyes and he fileted them in about 4 minutes. Perfect filets mind you. He was done about the time I finished my first one. I couldn't help but notice his filet knife was unusual. I asked him what brand it was. He said it was a Flint.
In all my internet searches I can find no such knife. Anyone else know?

If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
