Mr. Crappie Folding Slab Shaver

Made from 420J2 steel, this 4-inch blade is the same as that used to make surgical tools due to its sharpening ability and corrosion resistance in non-salt environments.

This great fishing companion weighs in at only 2.8 ounces. It fits nicely in a PFD vest and stows away conveniently on a kayak or in a tackle box. The blade opens easily, locks securely and is very sturdy to fillet the catch of the day. The highly visible and durable nylon handle is great for keeping track of this nice fillet knife. The blade flexes nicely to carve out fillets. I am hoping to use it to clean back straps off a harvested deer this season. Other knives in the “Mr. Crappie” family include the Mr. Crappie Slab Slinger and Mr. Crappie Slave Shaver. All of them have great ergonomic handles and carve out fillets effortlessly.

I bring this with me on my kayak every time I go out. If carried in your PFD it can also be used to cut your anchor quickly or in any emergency. I frequently take this knife with me out on the water and it still resists corrosion. I would suggest this to any angler and especially those fishing from a kayak.

110 Folding Hunter

The American-made Buck 110 Folding Hunter was introduced for the first time by Al Buck in 1963 and with this knife came the standard for other knives.


Forged from 420HC Steel and hardened to Bucks specifications the 110 has become a tradition.

The blade is forged from 420HC steel and is great for sharpening. The steel is less susceptible to corrosion and is a popular steel amongst outdoor enthusiasts. The craftsmanship on this knife hasn’t changed since the day Al Buck started making them. The brass edges are smooth and the fit is phenomenal. The handle is made from real wood and infused with resin which is called Dymondwood and transitions smoothly to brass on the ends. When opened the 110 is as reliable as a one-piece knife. The blade folds back and stores away nicely. The blade is 3 ¾ inches long and when closed measures 4 ⅞ inches long.The knife lists for $92 on the Buck Knives’ website and for an additional $7 you can have it engraved by them. The knife also comes with a very nice all leather sheath to carry it on your belt.

Overall, these are awesome knives. If you are looking for reliable outdoor knives to use in the field, then consider Buck Knives' Mr. Crappie Folding Slab Shaver and 110 Folding Hunter.
