Old favorite filet knife - CLICK TO ENLARGE

Old favorite filet knife

After 45 years of sharpening and filetting thousands of fish, the birch handle of my favorite filet knife finally cracked and rotted to the point that I had to give it up... or fix it.  Through the years of sharpening, the blade had just reached the perfect combiniation of flex and feel. so I created a new handle from Makore (African cherry), and now it should be good for another 45 years. afternoon well spent.

Design or Plan used: My own design - John Schutz
