Dexter Russell Sani-Safe 8" Wide Fillet Knife 10223 S138
Fillet knives are designed to be thin and flexible giving you great control and precision. Often used with fish, these knives are capable of lying between the skin and top layer of meat to provide a nice clean cut. Their blades have engineered flex points that spring back to its shape. They will glide right through the meat and hold a very sharp edge, hardly needing to be re-sharpened. When the knives need to be re-sharpened they will sharpen to the same sharpness as they were before thanks to the DEXSTEEL they were created with. Fillet and boning knives have similar uses except that a fillet knife is much longer and thinner allowing for easier work when dealing with fine and thin cuts.

I've owned a lot of DR knives, but prefer the S138 style the best for filleting and skinning fish. Makes quick work on bluefish, striped bass, cod, scup, fluke - you name it. Personally, I don't like flex in a knife.
Well, it's the fall of 2014 and I just bought a replacement for my 8" wide filet knife. I've been using the original since 1992. This is the BEST knife for large fish like striped bass and bluefish. The traditional knives are a but sharper, but the Sani-safe really don't show any corrosion. This knife and a narrow 8" and you're set for any fish here in the northeast.
