Fillet Knife

A fillet knife is a specialized kitchen tool designed for preparing fish. It is characterized by its long, thin, and flexible blade, which allows it to move easily along the backbone and under the skin of fish. The blade’s flexibility also enables it to adapt to the contours of the fish, making it easier to remove bones and skin.

The tip of a fillet knife is usually very fine and comes to a narrow angle. This design allows for precise cuts and easy insertion into fish. However, despite its thinness, the blade is designed to be strong and durable to withstand the demands of filleting.
