Default Filet knives

I have seen a few post about filet knives, and I always used Dexter Russell, But I lost my Dexter by someone accidentally kicking it off the dock. The other day I bought a set of two knives at Sam's club. The make is "Bakers and Chefs" And I have to say, I am real impressed with the two knives. Both are made of stain-free High Carbon German steel. 6"' and 6.5" one wide and one narrow. Extremely sharp and anti-microbial handles. I used the narrow one last night to filet a large fish and it worked great. They say " commercial grade" on the packaging and I think they are.
I only paid 8.99 for the pair, compared to 25.00 for one Dexter and I can say they are well worth the money. I might buy a bunch for X-Mas gifts for fishing buddies at that price. Just thought if anyone is looking for a few real good knives at a cheap price check them out. ~JJ~

Just letting you know for future ref. Dexters are super cheap from Mike Keller LTD. in Manteo. You can order from their website as well. You can get 6 fillet's for around 50.00. Pretty sweet deal.

Thanks for the info JJ. Report back after you use them for a while, I'm curious how they maintain their edge.

Note: I paid 24.99 for the dexter narrow filet knife @ Bass pro shops. I checked out Mike Keller and you are absolutely right.
9.00 each or 6 for 42.00 thats a great deal. Thanks again, ~JJ~

I have to admit that I love the cheap Rapala filet knives with the wood handle that you can buy just about everywhere. The quality of the blade is just about as good as any knife I have ever owned. I use it in the kitchen and the boat. Cant beat the price either.

Most restuarant supply places sell dexter russels for a fraction of the price that sporting goods places do. You can even try ebay because a lot of restuarant folks are on there.

I get DR's on ebay for a fraction of what the usual retail is. Just got a $60.00 commercial chefs knife for $16.00 shipped.

Funny thing about knives:

I use the expensive "Russels" for the filett knife, but i found.....(at all places) a great heavier knife at Bed, Bath and Beyond for steaking up mackrel an all. It's an "Analon" branded knife and has been kept on the outside fish cleaning table in a salt enviroment for a few months. Not a hint of corrosion yet, and it takes a very nice and hard edge. Nice grip for slimey hands too.
