Dexter Russell Sani Safe Filleting Knife 8″/ 20cm

A nice American made filleting knife.
Dexter use their own Proprietary “DEXSTEEL” which seems to be a nice stainless steel that is more resistant to corrosion than usual, making ideal for a boating knife or commercial use.
Sani-Safe handles feature a textured, slip-resistant, easy to clean polypropylene handle that withstands high and low temperatures.

I worked in a well-known fish shop called Shane’s Seafood for about a year and a half. This is the only brand of knife they used. Easy to sharpen and holds a decent edge.  

Now let me explain myself here:
I love a high-quality knife more than anyone.
But as a chef I know that I do not fillet fish every day. Hell, I normally get the guys at Shane’s do it.
My point is: I do not use this knife type much, so I do not want to spend $500 on a knife I use once a month, if that!
I want a well-made knife, that holds a decent edge and does not break the bank.
American made since 1818!

Also, I understand I sell Japanese knives but that does not mean I use Japanese cutting technique always.
I fillet western style, and this is the knife I use.

My prefered size knife for filleting.
I find the larger 9′ knife is better for cutting salmon.

American made since 1818!
