I realize this might not be the place to promote a product but I've gotta do it. If you are a fisherman (or woman) and haven't tried a Bubba blade to filet fish, you just gotta. It is as they say "One Kickass Knife". I used the 7 inch flex on 10 crappie Saturday and was done in a flash. This thing comes to your door with an edge you won't believe. Very comfortable handle with non-slip grip. I now own the 9" stiffie, 9" flex and 7" flex. The 9 inch knifes are great for bigger fish and if you are a hunter, the stiff blade is a great all around hunting knife. Ok, I'm done promoting but really love this product and felt I had to share it with my fellow fishermen/women. Bye.
