Fillet Knives Review

The Best Fillet Knives: A Review.

The Fillet knife is an important tool in any kitchen. The Cookingcache team has tested several of the leading fillet knives on the market and we've rated them on several criteria including steel quality, edge retention, fit and feel, balance, overall value and warranty. Here are the results:

Global Fillet Knife (Model G-30): The Global Fillet knife proved to be our favorite fillet knife of those tested. The dimpled handle is easy to grip and has great control. We particularly liked the very thin, flexible blade and the extra inch of length the knife provided. Global uses a proprietary steel called CROMOVA 18. This type of steel is hard enough for Global knives to keep their edge for a long time, but soft enough so that it is not too difficult to sharpen. This is practically important with fillet knives since they need to be very sharp to perform well. Global offers a limited lifetime warranty on their knives. Cost is approximately $105.

Wusthof Grand Prix II Fillet Knife (Model 4625WS): There are several details about this well thought out knife that we like. First, the handle has a pebble rough texture that is excellent for gripping the knife even when your hands are slippery with fish slime on them. We found the knife was not quite as sharp as the Global and the blade is only 7" on the blade. However, we really liked the free knife sheath that accompanies the knife for easy transport. At about $80 this is a solid choice.

Henckels Pro S Fillet Knife (31030-183) This Henckels Pro S Fillet knife is fully forged and measures 7" on the blade. The handle is a traditional 3 rivet design which is popular but felt a little clunky in the testers hands. The blade is fully forged but is not particularly flexible compared to the Global above. Not a bad choice for about $70 but not our favorite

Chroma Fillet Knife (Model P07) Chroma Knives combine a sleek modern design with high quality. We thought the blade was good we had trouble with the handle. It seems the knife was designed with form in mind over comfort. When gripping the knife the edges of the handle don't conform to your hand which makes the knife awkward to use. If you are considering this knife you should hold it at a local dealer. For most others avoid. Cost is about $80.
