Bubba Blade Tapered Flex Fillet Knife 12" Black Blade, Red TPR Handle, Black Nylon Sheath - BB1-12F
BUBB112F: 12" Flex Blade Fillet Knife
The 12" Flex Blade Fillet Knife uses the same patented textured no-slip-grip handle and stainless steel as the other Bubba Blades. This knife is designed for the fisherman that likes some flex to the blade and is filleting larger fish. Full tang construction made from a single piece of steel provides strength and stability while the trigger grip lets you put some heat on the knife when needed. The knife comes with a black nylon belt sheath.
Bubba Blade looked into what kind of metal is used on the most expensive knives and discovered that not all stainless steel is created equally. There are many factors involved in steel-making, and you need high-end steel to keep a sharp edge on a knife.
After months of research, they went with 8Cr13MoV stainless steel. They felt that it was the best steel on the planet for what fishermen and hunters want. This is a high carbon stainless steel with a Rockwell rating for hardness of 56-58, which is typically found in much more expensive knives. Simply put, this steel is the best they could find that would hold a razor sharp edge longer and take an edge when resharpening it.
All Bubba Blades are sharpened by hand at the factory to razor sharpness. For good measure, they coated the blade with a non-stick surface that is bonded with titanium that will help prevent rusting & pitting and let the meat slide off the blade effortlessly.
