Description: I was very excited when I was introduced to Dan Bidinger at 2019 Blade West in Portland, OR. Though Dan didn't have a table, his work spoke for itself. Bidinger brings a tremendous amount of skill, precision, and design to his knives. Since then, I've followed Bidinger's work, which has continued to excel.
This high performance fillet knife is sure to become a 'goto' knife -- both in the kitchen and when out fishing. This beautiful knife is the right tool for two key tasks — boning and filleting. When boning, the narrow, sharp blade gets in close to the bone, making it easy to separate meat from bone. The extremely sharp edge even cuts through fibrous material with ease. It’s perfect for trimming the silverskin from a tenderloin or even making your own cutlets. The narrow blade reduces drag as you cut against the meat, so cutting is fast and easy. When it comes to filleting fish, the blade's 9 inch length is just right to glide through the body of large fish, quickly removing bones and skin. The knife has a slight flex making filleting a breeze.
The flexible blade is formed from high performing AEB-L stainless steel. Many knifemakers and metallurgists feel that AEB-L, with its small crystalline size, tremendous edge stability and toughness, is among the best stainless steels used in knifemaking today. AEB-L was developed for razor blades with a very fine grain structure making it easy to sharpen while maintaining good edge holding capabilities. The flat grind provides a very efficient cutting geometry. The spine is nicely rounded for a comfortable grip.
The contoured handle is made from Richlite. Natural canvas Micarta liners add a nice contrast. The handle is beautifully shaped for a secure comfortable grip and is completed with a lined lanyard hole.
The knife is accompanied by a custom Kydex sheath.
Excellent work throughout!
