What is a fillet knife?
A fillet knife is used to remove the bones from fish. The blade is slender and flexible for the fine work that is required. It gets the job done quickly and easily without tearing up the fish. A good quality fillet knife will have to have the following characteristics:
Flexible Blade: Blade flexibility is essential when choosing a fillet knife. It makes it easier to do the intricate work often required for cleaning and deboning fish. You’re able to get cleaner cuts that preserve more of the fish meat, and at the same time lower the probability of cutting yourself in the process.
Quality: Most fillet knives are made from high-carbon stainless steel. Some are made with new high-tech versions of stainless steel. Others have a titanium, non-stick, or other finish. The blades are slender with a sharp tip and a smooth edge. Some people prefer a filleting knife with a serrated edge for filleting large fish.
The Right Size of Blade: Fillet knives vary widely in size, ranging from 5 - 11 inches, with 7 inches being the standard fillet knife size. It is important to match the size of your fillet knife to the size of the fish you will be cleaning for best results.
