    Have you seen this type of filleting knife?

    It looks to me it was converted from some sort of chefs knife. Very effective, despite the odd shape, but it also might be because of the person using it.

    Can you guys give a little critique on this knife? Shape, geometry, for instance. Past experience filleting fish would be preferable.

    Skills trump tools almost every time.
    Looks like some kind of ground down Forschner or D/R.

    Btw, did you see in this video of his those floaty white knife sharpening things? I wonder if that blade shape is just the result of using that gadget for a long time?

    I think it's a Forschner Fillet knife, ground down from running it through that blasted contraption every 5 minutes.

    Looks like Sam Salvati's knife. But....it's probably a ground down Forschner or generic equivalent.

    Hi.. I doubt it. It is a V shaped honing device; unless it is a tungsten carbide version, then it would really remove steel ( sharpening). Looks like a F Dick version??

    I've never seen a floating one before but that probably makes sense in a commercial fish cleaning operation. It looks like the double hardened steel rods set an angle with springs to give them tension type "butcher's steel" several companies sell to meat packing companies. As such, it wouldn't take any more metal off than a standard polished steel. I have a couple around here I've tried in the past. They work about as well as any polished steel for quick touch-ups.
