At the end of the fishing day when you’re tired, it’s time to clean the fish. If you’d rather not struggle with poor tools, a good fillet knife like the Wusthof 4622 Classic 7-inch fillet knife makes the last chore of the day go quickly.
Forged from high carbon stainless steel, the Wusthof 4622 has a gracefully curved narrow blade laser-tested for accurate thickness and flexibility. Hardened to Rockwell 58 on the cutting edge, the fillet knife slips over the bone quickly for smooth cuts without ragged edges. If the blade needs a touch-up, just stroke it a few times with a honing steel to reset the edge.
At the grip end, even when the work gets slippery, you’ll have no problems holding on. Two perfectly fitted polymer handle slabs put extra leverage where you need it, permanently mounted to the knife’s full tang with stainless steel rivets. To give the knife extra strength and provide more security for your fingers, the forged bolster blends smoothly into the blade, spreading out the stress point where many stamped steel blades most often fail.
Designed for work in the kitchen as well as in the out-of-doors, the Wusthof 4622 handles all types of meat, poultry, and fish. The 4622 can be purchased without a sheath if you’d prefer to leave it at home, but the optional leather sheath fits it temporarily to either the belt or the tackle box for camping trips and work at the cleaning station. If you take this good knife fishing, you’ll definitely want the sheath. It’s too good a knife to bang around.
