Excellent narrow-blade knife
on July 19, 2011
I have owned one of these "fillet" knives (7½") for many, many years. Recently I decided that I would give one as a gift. Unfortunately, my knife was at the cabin, and could not remember the brand. I searched online and found it! Rapala brand. The "personal signature, hand-ground stainless steel, and made in Finland" engraved into the blade confirmed that it was indeed, the knife I was searching for.I was thrilled. I placed an order with Amazon.com and in a few days the knife arrived, perfectly packaged and in excellent condition.
As I checked the knife, I was absolutely thrilled with the quality. My old knife was one of the best knives that I have ever owned (It was thrown into tackle boxes, shop drawers, under pickup truck seats, and in kitchen knife holder. It was used for butchering deer, cutting fish bait, filleting fish, and used in the kitchen - works great for slicing tomatoes, potato-chip thin), etc, The new one is almost a carbon copy of the old - and still comes with a leather case. AND, surprisingly, it arrived "sharp enough to shave!"
If you want an excellent all-around, fillet knife, I would highly recommend this one!
