KS1258: 1258 K-Texture Folding Fillet Knife
Kershaw Knives

If you like to stow your gear compactly, this sleek Folding Fillet with K-Texture™ grip is the perfect choice for your tacklebox.

The knife's 6-in. blade folds into its handle and stores neatly. The blade is made of Japanese 420J2 stainless steel with just the right degree of flex to make the job of filleting simple. This “softer” steel enables the blade to bend without breaking so that it moves easily through the body of the fish to give you the ideal fillet. Plus, the steel is highly corrosion resistant—always important when you're working around water.

The handle is glass-filled nylon for durability and has a rubberized overmold with our exclusive K-Texture™ grip. The K-Texture™ pattern ensures you always have a secure hold—even in slippery conditions. While in use, the blade is locked open for safe and secure filleting, but releases easily when you’re ready thanks to the sturdy back lock. The Kershaw Folding Fillet is drilled to accept a lanyard.

Host of the popular TV show Fishing with Roland Martin, Roland is endorsing the entire Kershaw fishing line, including our new K-Texture™ grip series.

Cons: None
Very nice knife
I use this knife to debone game in the field. I like the folding feature as it fits nicely in my pack. The flexibility of the blade really speeds up the deboning process. I couldn't fairly comment on the blade sharpness. I touchup the blade continuously through the deboning process. I use a Accusharp sharpener. It is fast and kept the blade sharp enough to work well.
