This is my large model fillet knife it has a 10" blade having an overall length of 15 1/4", I installed front and back dovetailed bolsters to both lock in and protect the magma red cactus handle, attention to small details will make it last a lifetime and very much worth the extra effort it takes to do it right.
The most important part of the knife is the steel so I would like to take the time to tell you a little about it.
Made in the USA, CPM S35VN and its predecessor CPM S30VN was the first CPM steel developed specifically for knife making. It has superior edge holding to any other steel used in cutlery manufactured today but that is only the beginning of the story. Edge holding is only one characteristic that is important in superior knife construction. Equally as vital is toughness and stain resistance. The CPM process allows for incredible wear resistance (edge holding) combined with bombproof toughness, vital in a thin fine bladed knife. Finally, S35VN provides superior stain resistance which in the corrosive, alternately wet and dry environment is crucial to a knife that lasts a lifetime.

GC Made a beautiful knife, on time, on budget, was easy to work with, has excellent communication skills, and I’ll go back to him for another lknife in a heartbeat. The knife itself is well-balanced, Sharp, has a highly polished edge which shows no residual wheel marks ( The edge is not only honed, it is highly polished), and is a delight to use. GC It’s an old-school craftsman, in the best sense of the term.
