Ive had a Mister Twister for a long time and cant complain cleaned alot of fish with them..clean 50-60 fish and just barely gets warm.. alot of guys swear by the 10-12 dollar wal mart knives.

Buy 2 Walmart knives and swap them out every couple of fish. Keeps em cool and last a lot longer than one knife will

Ditto on the cheap electric knives. Black and Decker makes a good one for around 14.00. Just the blades of your choice from Berkley and you have a great set up. Myself, I've had several over the years and always keep the blades from whatever brand I had been using, twister, Berkley, etc.

I tried the Black and Decker from WalMart and understand why its $12. Get a good one; you get what you pay for.

american angler or bubba blade. you will not be dissappointed. i hear the new rapala heavy duty is a good knife but have not used it. in my experience the cheap ones do not hold up that well

i have both the heavy duty rapala electric and the rapala lithium ion battery operated electric knives. both are very good knives. have cleaned well over 100 gills and crappie this past winter multiple times and the battery operated knife performed outstanding. power to spare and no cord. the heavy duty corded knife has just a touch more power but you will not go wrong with either of these knives. hoping there will be some more reviews on the bubba knives as well and see they also offer a cordless electric knife as well.

A lot of people talk about American angler I have the titanium think thatís what itís called. Iíd rather use my mr twister. American gets hot fast. Never had a problem out of mr twister getting hot and you can get them on sale for $20.00 just my opinion

I use the corded rapala and I am on the 2nd one . first one lasted 3 yrs and am on my 3rd year on this one now . they do get warm after about 30+ fish but have done me well I usually clean 500+ fish a year so I’m satisfied ! I have the Berkley cordless and it only last about 20-25 fish handy if no electricity but don’t last long and isn’t too sharp!:twocents

I recently bought the HD Rapala. Only cleaned a couple fish with it but I like it so far.

So youíre using a different blade on the Black and Decker? That may something to try????

I have cleaned everything from large sharks, red fish to many panfish with my American Angler corded filet knife- still going, but I am also looking for a good cordless one now.

I use the american angler 12v fillet knife with the battery clips. I've used it hard for over a year, sometimes filleting over 100 white perch a session. The thing still works good as new. It's well worth the money, I got it off ebay for 40 bucks. The same knife retails for $109.
