So what is the DALSTRONG 7 inch fillet knife all about? Take a look at the information below that will help you to peer inside the box of this wonderful craftsmanship.
- This knife is the best option for deboning, descaling, filleting, skinning, trimming, and butterflying your favorite cuts of fish. You could even use this knife to help you work the flesh away from meat bones such as chicken and other soft meat.
- The blade has been crafted from high carbon German steel. The high levels of carbon in the blade help to make it tougher than other blades, not to mention also making the blade sharper than your average stainless steel knife.

This is also a great safety feature as you will not endanger brushing against the sharp blade if you decide to keep it in a kitchen cutlery drawer. The sheath also keeps the blade free from nicks for longer and helps to keep it from becoming blunt when rubbing against other kitchen utensils.
Pros & Cons
What else can we say about this fantastic DALSTRONG 7” fillet knife? Why not take a look at our convenient pros and cons below from our time with this knife. The following information will show you what we liked and what features we liked and ones that gave us concerns.
1.5mm. The knife blade measures a mere 1.5 mm thick from the spine – an ultrathin blade. The high carbon blade ensures a robust but fine knife that is tough but is also flexible, allowing the user to work their way in between even the finest fish bones and joints, making it easier to release the flesh from the bones.
Travel case. This is the ideal knife to take camping as it comes with a travel case with a belt loop, now you can always have it on you and ready to slice into delicious cuts of campfire food.
This blade is so tough that it seems rather brittle, causing it to possibly pit and nick after just a few uses if you are not careful. It is worth noting that this knife may require frequent honing in order to keep it in tip top condition. DALSTRONG offers a nice honing service which may prove useful in this case.
Are you a fish fan? Then I am sure you are keen to get your hands on a strong and sturdy, fillet knife that will help you to glide between fish bones and debone and butterfly your favorite seaside catch.
But you may be wondering, do I really need to purchase a fillet knife? Well, as with most things, you will be able to get the job done with other knives, but a fillet knife will help you to prepare your fish a lot faster than you would do with any other kitchen utensil. A paring knife, for example, is thin, but simply isn’t long enough to work around the bones and all other kitchen knives are too bulky for such delicate work.
To justify the purchase, it is nice to remember that a filleting knife can be used for more than just filleting fish, it is also ideal for trimming the fat away from meat, preparing fruit and vegetables, such as peeling the tough skin away from an avocado, cutting flesh away from meat and much more!
