Russ Kommer, gifted knifemaker and hunting and fishing guide, came up with the breakthrough blade grind that puts our Big EddyÃ¢Â„Â¢ at the head of the class. Traditionally, fillet knives have had a symmetrical grind. After many hours of filleting 40-pound Alaska Salmon with the great skill and care required, the answer for a vastly improved fillet knife came to RussÃ¢Â€Â”put a hollow grind on the top side of the blade and a flat grind on the bottom.
After making and rigorously testing a custom version and proving how well the concept worked, Russ granted CRKT the exclusive rights for the production models.
The Razor-Sharp 420J2 stainless steel blade features RussÃ¢Â€Â™s high hollow grind on the top of the blade, which creates an air pocket to lift and Ã¢Â€ÂœfloatÃ¢Â€Â fillets off, while the flat taper ground side glides smoothly across the skin. Triple-PointÃ¢Â„Â¢ Serrations help you cut through gristle, bones and fins.
