iCAST Review: Buck Knives Mr. Crappie Fillet Folder & Cleaning Gloves Rate High
Bob McNally 07.06.16
No outdoorsman needs an introduction to the legendary Buck Knife line. The company has been producing high-end knives for American sportsman for generations.
This year they’re targeting the panfish filleting market, and for the 2016 iCAST international tackle show in Orlando, Buck has introduced a compact and lightweight (2.8 ounce) knife designed for quick cleaning of small fillets on panfish, such as crappies, perch, and sunfish.
The 9-inch overall knife has a 4-inch razor-edge blade that’s flexible and easy to work around small fish dorsal areas and rib bones. Made with 420J2 steel, the knife has a comfortable Hi-Vis yellow handle and retails for just under $40.
The folding knife should be well received by anglers because its compact size fits easily in tackle boxes and boat storage areas.
