Columbia River (CRKT) CRKT 7" Fillet
We understand about fillet knives. Things happen. Sometimes you're on a tight budget. Sometimes they get dropped and lost. Sometimes you forget to wash and wipe them down after saltwater use, with really ugly results. Sometimes they end up in the bottom of the boat, or in someone else's tackle box. They live a hard life. So, many fishermen are reluctant to invest in a fine folding fillet knife like our Kommer Surf' N Turf® or our premium Kommer Big Eddy™ Fillet Knives. Recognizing these realities, we asked fishing guide and knifemaker Russ Kommer to come up with a line of affordable fillet knives that we could take pride in and put the CRKT brand on. Here they are, in three sizes. Each one has a flexible 5Cr15MoV stainless steel blade with an extended tang that reaches nearly to the butt of the grip. For improved performance, we hand-grind scallops into the blades to create air pockets so the fillets won't stick to the blades as you cut—a feature normally found only on much more expensive slicing knives. The handles are molded TPR with a fishnet texture and a lanyard hole. Each size comes with an injection molded polypropylene sheath, fitted to grip the knife securely, with belt loops and plenty of drain slots. Our Model 3017 features a 7.25" blade. This popular size handles steelhead, salmon, and walleyes and other large lake and ocean fish. Even at their value prices, these fillets are covered by the CRKT Limited Lifetime Warranty. They're just honest affordable knives. Wash them when you're done, oil them occasionally, and they'll be around for years.
