The Cimeter is ideal for filleting larger fish and butchering. It enables you to remove flesh from bone in a single pass. Part of Kershaw's Pro-Grade Specialty Fish & Game Knives, the Cimeter features premium 420J2 stainless steel with just the right degree of flex to make the job easier. The handle is a proven design that really lets your hand lock into place. In addition, all Pro-Grade knives are designed to be lightweight so fish and game processing is less tiring. Comes complete with its own blade protector. Just slide them on to protect your razor sharp edge (and your gear). Slits in the guard allow air to circulate.
