Rapala Electric Fillet Knife and Fork
Worst Producd Ever Bought From Bass Pro
This is the worst product that I have ever bought from Bass Pro. The swith (on/off) is very hard to operate, I have to push so hard on this swith to make the blades work that it causes my thumb to push the blade releae button (which is placed directly oppsite the on/off switch) and release the blades while trying to fillet a fish. I had to sharpen the blades in order to even be able to cut through the rib bones of Crappie and small bass. I am very disapointed in this product. If I hadn't had to sharpen the blades and work on the on/off switch to make this thing work I would send it back.

Fillet Knife By Rapala
The knife works great and the blades are very sharp. I didn't think I was going to need the fork w/ handle however, I did find it very useful when I cut the fillet all the way off the tail. It helps to keep your fingers away from the knife blade. Great idea. I also like the extra long chord.

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 i have ever used
I received a Rapala electric fillet knife as a gift to replace my old general electric kitchen fillet knife. I used it for the first time this weekend to fillet 5 bass. Brand new and i could not get through the first 2 fish. It would not cut through the back bones. I went and got my old knife with worn blades and finished cleaning the fish with no problems. My advice, don't but a Rapala knife.
