Thanks for the image Jud.

That looks like the perfect blade profile for a fillet.

Appreciate the thoughts fellas. Haven't had time to post much recently, but as Jud said, I'm still around

I typically look to grind the big fillets with some flex starting about half way up the grind. I generally leave some spine at the back half of the blade. Commercial guys seem to prefer the grind this way as it gives some control without being tiring. I believe Phil grinds a damned fine fillet which are likely every bit as good or better than mine. These hurt hell outa my arthritis but I can be talked into one on an occasional basis. Stay fairly busy these days and unfortunately the waiting list is longer than it should be, but if a fella isn't in a rush, I will happily build ya one eventually.

I haven't been "hanging out" with anyone...

But if you're not as goofy as you appear on this thread, you can look back to the posts and PM's I've helped you with to lift up from Doziers....AND look at the myriad threads I've posted the above...

Good grief, you grumpy bastard. A guy post a knife he is happy with (I love this fillet knife) and instead of either complimenting it, or ignoring the post because you have nothing positive to contribute, you go off on an odd tangent to compare it to something else. He's happy with his knife, that's ok. He doesn't need anyone's approval to be happy with his blade. And especially doesn't need goaded to compare it to another custom that is quite difficult and expensive to get your hands on like a Phil Wilson. Your suggestion comes off snobby (look at ME, I have a WILSON) and as if you are chitting on another makers work. The OP did not ask "What knife should I compare my new fillet knife to?" I never thought of you as that guy before. With that said, I could be wrong.


Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

Nice knife indeed. How you digging that Four Roses? Been on a bourbon tour since Covid hit and haven’t grabbed a bottle of that yet.

Sam's Club usually carries the Four Roses Small Batch and it's under $25 a bottle! Pretty good for the price point!

Judman,

Nice knife, looks like you have been giving it a workout. I have a similar one from Mike Miller that I used to clean a bunch of crappie last week.

Great looking knife indeed. I can vouch for the maker too. Dale is straight up and offers a superb product at a fair price. He has my respect. And yes, I do own several of Phil's knives as well. Phil is a long time friend of mine. Nice job Dale!

Well Damnit, now you have me thinking I should maybe look into getting one of those.
