LEAD BLADE FIRST.
When we designed the Montana Knife Company™ Flathead Fillet Knife our goal was to create a knife that could do any possible task on the boat, next to the river or on the processing table.
The Flathead Fillet is made out of AEB-L steel and has an additional safety coating of MKC Black Cerakote™ to protect the blade from rusting. (All steels rust over time so make sure to use MKC Blade Wax to protect your knives). The G-10 handle scales are equally as tough as the blade. G-10 is notorious for being strong, durable, and stable. No natural handle material can compare to its toughness.
Each Montana Knife Company™ Flathead Fillet comes with a Kydex sheath with a quick attach belt loop. This belt loop can be put on your belt without removing or unclasping the belt. The knife can also be carried horizontally or vertically by simply removing two screws, adjusting the clip, and reapplying the screws.
The Montana Knife Company™ Flathead Fillet has the perfect balance of flex and rigidity. The blade is designed to be flexible enough to work on your fresh catch on the side of the lake but rigid enough to help you process your elk or deer in your garage.
THE FLATHEAD FILLET - FILLETING & BONING KNIFE
The Montana Knife Company™ Flathead Fillet got its name from the Flathead River, Lake, and Valley in the far northwest corner of Montana. The Flathead lake is known for being one of the largest and deepest lakes west of the Mississippi River, with some of the largest known lake trout.

What a knife.
I’ve had many fillet knives over the years, but this one takes the cake.
Very well balanced and it feels good in your hand.
Blade has a nice narrow taper and is ridiculously sharp.
The blade is also flexible enough to be workable, yet stiff enough to get through bigger fish.
God willing, this one will get put to the test in a few weeks on the Columbia.
Another fine blade from the Montana Knife Company
Very light. Just enough flexibility.
I’ve only used it to process deer but I imagine it’ll do a good job on fish too.
Be careful it comes extremely sharp. It doesn’t take much to go through what you intend on cutting to something you didn’t intend on cutting.
For a curved fillet knife it was great. It could have had a little more flex and it would be great to see a flat blade in addition to the curved. But doesn’t stop the fact this is a great fillet knife
