Tucked inside is a Japanese stainless steel knife with a built-in sharpener. On the handle, the scooper makes gutting and cleaning easier. When you’re done, safely sheathe the knife back into its weighted case, which becomes a “bonker.” This makes it a heavy implement you can use to humanely shorten your fish’s flopping.
It’s a perfect gift for any avid angler, but surprisingly, it wasn’t invented by one. Instead, Ryan Jesse left behind a painting career to pursue life as an inventor. This fish fillet knife isn’t his first effort, but with it, he seems to have landed a big one. This simple idea “komboed” his ingenuity and his passion for the ocean.
Unlike pretty much every other aspect of fishing, this fishing tool is easy to grip, thanks to its thermoplastic rubber handle. And if you happen to drop it in the water, don’t worry… because it floats. Clean and fillet with one simple, safe, effective tool. Enjoying fresh fish is easier than ever.
