Quality fillet knives can cost a fortune, but as demonstrated by the Gerber Gator Fillet Knife, this doesn’t always have to be the case. Although not quite as tough and durable as some of the more expensive knives on the market, it is hard to argue with the price of the Gerber Gator. It is a fixed blade fillet knife that is available in four different lengths, with the longest sporting a 7” blade. The blade is manufactured from 420HC stainless steel, which is solid, but not premium steel by any means.

At 4.4 oz, the 7” blade, which has an overall length of 12.2”, feels solid, but not too heavy. To make the handle more rigid and sturdy it features a glass-filled nylon design with Gator Grip overmold. This lends the handle better surface hardness along with a comfortable grip. The Gator Grip handle is something that is patented by Gerber and ensures that you have a good grip on the knife whether your hands are wet or dry.

The full tang stainless steel blade of the Gator makes it easy to fillet fish, but Gerber has also simplified the task of keeping the blade sharp. They have done this by including a ceramic sharpener that is built-in the hard-molded sheath that comes with the blade. This means you never have to run into situations where you discover the blade is dull and there is no way on hand to sharpen it.

As the Gerber Gator can be bought for less than $20, there is very little that can be faulted about it. It is not as impressive, unique or durable as knives that sell for five times the price, but if all you want is a no-thrills knife that can get the job done at a reasonable price, then it is definitely worth a look.
