Williamson Curved Fillet Knife 570 320 BassGrab

Williamson Curved Fillet Knife

Williamson is a part of Rapala and they develop lures and fishing tools. I was fortunate enough to be able to work with their 10” curved fillet knife this past weekend and I was very impressed with the cutting power and rigidity that it provided. My first impression of this fillet knife was that I could use it to fillet a 15 foot bull shark.
