Handy knife for fishermen.

While in the Lakes last weekend I bought this for fishing 12.95

its a cracking knife for the price and has a rubberised handle which is great for cold and wet hands it also has stainless steel blade to give some protection against the salty stuff.

Nice one, I'm looking to replace my trusty Fiskars which has just about given up the ghost. Where'd you buy it ?

Can't remember the shop name Dave but it was an outdoor shop you can get them on Amazon.

I was pleasantly surprised to discover that link didn't lead to a bayonet...

They seem to make a nice safety version too - if the price is similar, they'd be a good option for the console: Companion F Rescue

Having had a variety of fishing knives over the years for bait cutting & fish gutting/filleting/cleaning I finally admitted defeat & accepted that the local professional fishermen had been right all along. A good quality thin bladed kitchen filleting knife is perfect for the job. You just need to be careful where you store it on the boat - one of the rod holders was perfect!
For one in a sheath you won't go far wrong with most of the filleting knives sold on fishing sites. Most general purpose sheath knives are too thick in the blade.
Any of these would be fine - not expensive either.
Fish Filleting Knives

ETA If you're going to be doing much filleting or have concerns about accidents I can also recommend a single stainless glove.
