I bought a KVD fillet knife last year at Walmart, paid $7 or $8 bucks I believe .. it looks great and the packaging makes it sound like a great knife but I feel like I have to put a good bit of pressure on it (this is for filleting walleye btw).
I've only filleted ~10 fish w this thing and I'm just not happy. I searched the forum and ran across this thread from 2008. There's some good info in there, and some mixed thoughts.
Some folks were keen on the cheap Rapala knife from WM (they liked the blade but disliked the handle). Then I ran across some other posts about some pricey knives ($75+) and electric knives.
I wonder if the sentiment about the lower priced Rapala knife holds true 10 yrs later from anyone?
Basically I'm looking for a good knife (doesn't have to be the best, but good) that'll last a while and ideally is < $25.
Amazon has a lot of options, reviews are mixed. Not looking to invest in a superb caliber knife or electric knife quite yet, so would like something of good quality in the interim.
Any thoughts/feedback appreciated.
