How to choose an Electric Fillet Knife?

For those anglers who are doing fishing activities regularly, the choice of using an electric fillet knife is easy. These knives do their work smoothly through a fish just as hot knife goes through a bar of butter. They are time and energy savers, preserving your patience for other important concerns in life. Like patience for catching the next trophy size!

Choosing which electric fillet knife can be difficult, even though many of them have similar characteristics. The two clear leaders in electric fillet knives are Rapala and American Angler. The standard sizes of these knives are from 4 to 9 inches. Just like a fixed blade fillet knife, a bigger fish will demand a longer blade while a smaller fish only needs a shorter blade. Salmon and larger fish are cut better with a 9” blade; but the all around standard size in most of the fillet knives is often a 7.6” blade.

The material must be stainless steel because a metal blade is stronger, durable and corrosive resistant. The blade must be flexible; its flexibility is contingent upon its thickness. The thicker blades are the least flexible while the 4 to 6” blades are quite thin and flexible. The handle must be comfortable to grip and manipulated. The material must either be of rubber or plastic. Make sure the handle has a beveled area for the index finger. It is advisable to buy the knife with a sharpener.

Many benefits can be enumerated from using electric fillet knife. Aside from economizing time, energy and patience, it is easy to use. The blade will vibrate and you just move it along the fillet until the meat falls off. Once all the meat is stripped off, you can dispose of the bones and skin. You are now safe to enjoy your delicious catch.

To keep your fishing hobby more enjoyable, be sure to include an electric fillet knife in your fishing equipment gear.
