The Victorinox 40311 Fillet Knife takes the performance and functionality of the traditional boning knife and ups the ante by being thinner, more flexible, and better suited for preparing fish. A specialized knife in the sense that it works extremely well along the backbone and under the skin of fish, the fillet knife is a favorite in the kitchen for just that reason. Picking the right fillet knife can mean keeping precious product that would otherwise get wasted, saving on preparation time, and avoiding ugly and unnecessary accidents. The Victorinox 40311 Fillet Knife has a flexible, stamped blade, providing a thinner, lighter knife. With a classy carved rosewood handle, and a 7 inch long blade, it’s conveniently sized and comfortably equipped to suit either an experienced chef or a budding novice.
