    Default What's the Best electric fillet knife

    I'm looking for Speed, Durability, AC, Doesn't get hot on your hand, good trigger. Do you like straight or curved blades?

    I like straight blades myself. As far as brand I currently have a Mister Twister, but when it dies I WILL go to a discount store and just buy an electric knife that isn't too costly. My Mister Twister gets hot in my hand when I'm cleaning a bunch of fish. I bought an Expensive fillet knife one time that cost me $70 and it didn't make it thru 10 fish and it died. That's why I'll get cheap ones from now on.

    I like curved blades. American Angler has been good to me.
    I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin' and hook up with them later.

    I have worn out every brand made. They all got hot after a lot of fish. Have a American angler with curved blades and it has been ok. Like Barryg I just went to goodwill and bought a brand new sunbeam for 5 bucks. Will never buy another one new.

    American Angler with the Shark blades is about as good as you can get.....they also have a new model out that has steel gears. You can check them out at HOME



    I have spent most my life fishing........the rest I wasted.

    I know this wasn't the question that was asked, but I can tell you which one NOT to buy. I ordered a Kershaw AC powered knife a while back, and it is as close to worthless as any knife I have ever used. Like trying to fillet a crappie with an extremely dull chain saw.

    All I've used are the American Anglers with curved blades. Hardly ever will I bring home a limit (30 fish) but most times I'll clean half a limit for the familyand the knife starts getting warm before I get through. I like the knife alright for the money.

    For years when we would clean large amounts of crappie at Sardis one of the guys had an old 60's model electric knife that would out perform any real fillet knife we had in the bunch. We all fought to use it but as things go one day it died. I think it was a GE brand with straight blades. It's was faster, didn't get hot and wasn't any heavier that a cheap fillet knife. It was just made to carve turkeys and roasts I guess. I was american made though.
