A good fillet knife can be indispensable on long kayak trips where you don’t just fish for fun, but for food as well. However, as anyone who has been on one of these trips will know, accidents can happen and at some point your gear might end up in the water. This can be a disaster depending on the depth and clarity of the water, which is why the South Bend Floating Fillet Knife is so useful.

The six inch taped blade of this knife is made from stainless steel and is sharp as well as durable enough to make it useful for all gamefish. However, the real reason to invest in this knife is the handle. Not only does it have a comfortable grip, but it also ensures that the knife floats if it is dropped in the water. This feature alone can save you the cost of a brand new knife if it happens in deep or murky water. In addition, the grip also has a high visibility design, so it is easier to spot when floating on the water. Of course, this isn’t really going to help much if you are fishing in low light, but for general use out on the water it is really useful.

The South Bend Floating Fillet Knife is definitely more on the affordable side of the spectrum, but obviously this means it is going to need more frequent sharpening than some of the more expensive knives. However, this shouldn’t be an issue if you don’t require the use of a fillet knife all the time and only want one for backup purposes. This knife does come with a sheath, but once again the quality is not quite on par with the leather sheaths typically bundled with more expensive knives.
