Shakespeare Six Piece Fish Fillet Knife Set
Shakespeare Six Piece Fish Fillet Knife Set is great kitchen knife set suitable not only for fish filleting. It comes in solid plastic case good for both storing and carrying.
Shakespeare Six Piece Fish Fillet Knife Set includes:
- 7.5" (~19 cm) fillet (filleting knife),
- 6" (~15.2 cm) fillet,
- 5" (12.7 cm) serrated utility/scaler,
- sharpening steel,
- plastic cutting board.
When I was in school, long long time ago, this would have been five (5) piece fish fillet knife set, not six (6)! Carrying case is obviously considered to be the sixth piece. :o)
Anyway, knives are made from 420 stainless steel and have gray-blue soft rubber handles that hold grip easy even when wet (fresh/salt water, fish blood and guts etc). Set comes in gray plastic carrying case.
Note: 420 stainless steel includes: Fe, <0.15% C, 12.0-14.0% Cr, <1.0% Mn, <1.0% Si, <0.04% P, >0.03% S and it is a higher carbon version of 410 steel. 420 steel contains a minimum of 12% chromium; it has good resistance to the atmosphere, foods, fresh water and mild alkalies or acids - prolonged contact with unwashed food residues can result in pitting of the knife surface.
After use, be sure to wash knives thoroughly and dry them with dry cloth - this will enables them to be used for a long time. Also, case is solid, but could be stronger/tougher, especially closing snaps. Filleting knifes are thin and elastic - great for filleting both smaller and larger fish. Plastic cutting board is solid, but expect some marks from blades, especially if blades are kept very sharp (recommended for filleting).
