Blades: Gamakatsu Releases New Fillet Knives In Four Different Lenghts

Gamakatsu has released its newest addition to their line of fishing tools and outdoor products, a custom-designed line of fillet knives. The line is made up of four different-sized fillet knives that were designed in the USA with attention to detail. These new Gamakatsu knives hit all the points needed for a practical and purpose-driven line of fillet knives. They’re made to work for novice to professional anglers and fish cutters.

The new Gamakatsu fillet knives come with features made for anglers, the blades are flexible to have a little “give” to help ride over the bones and conform to the cutting board when you skin fish. This makes for a more precise knife that can be used to cut up even the fiddliest bucket of panfish into a stack of fillets.

With fish cutting in mind, the fillet knives are built to hold up in wet conditions. The steel is a corrosion-resistant 420J2 Stainless Steel that has a DLC coating (Diamond-Like Carbon). So the blades will stay rust-free and easy to clean. The grips of the knives are a blue and gray G-Grip handle. This is a glass-filled nylon that is covered in rubber over mold material for a secure grip even when wet or covered in fish slime. The knives also come with a simple protector-style sheath to keep the edge and you safe.

The blades come in four-different styles starting with the GMKT6F has a 6-inch long blade for small to medium-sized fish, and the 7-inch GMKT7FS which also features a spoon at the end of the handle to help clean guts and scrape bloodlines. The two larger knives are the GMKT7.5F with a 7.5-inch long blade and the GMKT9F with a 9-inch long blade.
