One of the most recognized names in knives is Case. How many of us has had a Case knife handed down to us from our fathers or grandfathers? How many of those knives are still functional today? Case knives are American made and known for lasting generations. Case’s 9-Inch Fillet Knife isn’t any different.

I was given an opportunity to review this fillet knife and I already had high expectations as I took it out of its box. The knife was nothing much to look at, with a plain polymer handle and stainless steel blade, but after picking up the knife, I immediately felt like it was molded to fit my hand. The large front quillon gave me a sense of security when filleting fish, and the handle was not slippery. It also had a decent size back quillon that kept this knife secure in my hand.

The overall length of the knife is 14 inches and blade length is 9 inches, perfect for filleting most average size fish. The knife also comes in a 6-inch blade, perfect for cleaning panfish. The knife comes with a leather sheath that protects the blade. The blade fits perfectly and stays in the sheath very well. I never had the knife fall out at any time and I did try to shake it out without any luck.

I found the 1.2-millimeter thickness of the blade to have the right amount of flex for average size fish. I also look forward to using it this fall to cut the back straps of a deer, if I’m lucky.

Overall, the fillet knife is a great. Nothing fancy, just a fillet knife that gets the job done. It’s built to last, and hand down to your son or daughter.
