Global Swedish filleter

Robin Joy Jan 9, 2009 06:55 PM

Does anyone have experience of these please? My fishmonger uses one, so I guess they're at least ok. I'm very lucky in that it's pretty much the only item I crave for my kitchen, Santa having kindly brought some Laguiole steak knives!

    For under $20 you can get this Swedish fillet knife

    with a pretty blue handle! Comes with a sheath, so you can keep it with your fishing tackle. I suspect Frosts of Sweden knives are readily available in the UK.

      Thanks, I'll look out for this. The Global seems to have a really, really, flexible blade and looks perfect when used by my fishmonger, but then I expect he could skin a fish with a housebrick!

        I once bought the same filleting knife
        used by fileters at a sport fishing
        place. As you say, they could
        probably filet with anything, but I
        found no use for it. A 4-1/2 inch Forschner
        utility knife works for me.
