I think the best filleting knife I've ever had was a Ruko, a Solingen knife with the sharpener in the sheath.  Some muppet broke it on me and bought me a set of 3 Schrade knives and a steel in a case.  I haven't used it yet but the long one looks like it will be ok.  If you see an original Ruko buy it; the cheap Chinese production costs put them out of business and they were a top knife.

Buzzbomb, if those are USA made Schrades they are great knives.....collectable....the newer Schrades are also made in China sadly.

For those looking for cheap super super sharp fillet/boning or chef's knives:

Market Meats on 4th and Vine (beside Shoppers, across from Safeway) has a bucket of their old knives that they sharpen and sell. Fillet/boning knives $5 each or 3 for $10, chef's knives $10 a piece. Things are wicked sharp.

A long Rapala and a thin Frosts but more and more I'm using a large Chef's knife-sometime even my Santoku.



This looks like what I am using now. Thinking about to buy a "real" fillet knife.  Kershaw seems a good choice by reading the posts.
