    All of mine are Kershaw, they seem to hold an edge fairly well. Even when not optimaly sharp they seem to work.

    I use an electric fillet knife at home. I have had good luck with Rapala
    fillet knifes in years past. I just bought a Buck Silver Creek bait knife
    and really like it. Buck also makes a Silver Creek Fillet knife. Check
    them out on E-bay.

    I've had good luck with Rapala knives too. Can't beat them for the money.

    Dexter and Frosts also make great professional fillet knives.

    I use a lot of Frosts knives, the Mora's and Swedish Army knives are great blades and they are cheap too. K.J. Erikkson and Frosts have merged into one company called Mora of Sweden. I will promise you, you will NOT find a knife that is as sharp, holds an edge, and is as easy to touch up as one of the blades from this company. They aren't fancy, just good working knives. I used to be into all of the "high quality, high tech" blades that are in vogue right now, but after buying a couple of Frosts, I hardly look as anything else now. I use them, abuse them, and I've never had one fail in anyway.

    I like the looks of those new Buck fillet knives, but I'm not too fond of the 420HC steel that they use in most of their blades.

    Kerhsaw has always made a great blade, I love their stuff. I think that they are probably the best modern day knife company for technology and design.
