Rapala® Electric Fillet Knife and Fork
Buy something else
Blade release button in the wrong place! Otherwise okay.

O.K. once you get used to it
I will agree with the fact that the blade release button is inconveniently placed and you need to watch your hand placement. But then again, with an electric fillet knife I would highly suggest that anyways!
I read some of the negative reviews and I can't speak to those specific issues as I have not had them, but I will repeat what was told to me, "You have to spend some time getting used to it". I bought this electric fillet knife because it was the one the kid at my usual bait shop was using. I had him clean a few fish for me and asked him what he recommended, and this was what he was using. From what he said he'd been using it all summer.
Another thing he mentioned that I can vouch for, "Learn to let the knife do the work."

worst knife ever
right out of the package, low rpms and would NOT even cut through a flounder when the blades would stay in. blades would stay in handle until you touch the fish, then they come apart. Very poor workmanship. should be removed from store

Worse purchase ever
I have probably worn out 2 dozen filet knives in my 50 or more years of fishing, most in the $20-$25 price range. I thought I was purchasing a really good $40 knife, but this is by far the worse knife I have ever used. If there was a rating lower than one star, this knife would get it!
