EKA Knives
 
A hallmark of EKA, this pivoting blade little wonder is extremely useful and versatile. Practical, safe and razor-sharp, it can be used in the kitchen, on a fishing trip or on the sailboat. The shape of the knife blade is optimized for filleting. The inversed gut opener lets you open the gut of the fish and perform the zipping process smoothly and safely. The blade is made by the Swedish Sandvik Steel 12C27, hardened to 57-59 HRC. The handle is made of a high-quality PROFLEX rubber. The Duo comes with a sturdy well-made Cordura sheath.

Some Folks Call It a Fillet Knife, …
… I call it a, “swingblade,” ah-huh. I bought this EKA Duo Swingblade to be include in a knife roll set of wilderness butchering tools all in, “I’m-over-here” orange, for forgetful old men. This fillet knife will be part of a 3 piece Kydex fish processing sheath (fillet knife, needle nose pliers, and Svord Iki), all with orange handles. Remove the hook, give ‘em an ice-pick lobotomy, clean ‘em, eat ‘em. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Nice, flexible (paramount) Sandvik 12C27 blade. Haven’t had a chance to try it yet, but I can see from the flex that it will perform well. I like the Sandvik 12C27 for a fillet knife for its stain resistance, and it takes an edge well. Arrived fairly sharp, but could take a dressing before use, for sure. The handle is comfortable and ergonomic, and I like the extra length. Swing mechanism works easily/well, and blade lock-up is good. Gut zipper blade seems fine, as well, and would work not only for large fish, but mammals, too. This would make a fine boning knife, also. The sheath is nice, but the knife rattles in it a bit. Nothing that would spook the fish, though. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Putting the knife edge to an angle guide, the EKA Duo Swingblade seems to have about a 15° edge. If you’re like me, and like to dress the blade after every fish, you’ll want to find a dedicated ceramic vee-rod sharpener at 15°. I suppose you could e-mail the manufacturer and find out the exact edge angle degree. I wish manufacturers would include edge bevel angle, as well as grind (hollow, saber, convex, etc.) in their product info. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> EKA Duo Swingblade is a great multi-purpose tool. You get a free Kunglig Hovleverantor (I didn’t know Sweden still had a King), and a 10 year warranty with every knife. Made in Eskilstuna (means: let’s go kill a tuna), Sweden, so, they must know about fishing and fillet knives. A little pricey, but definitely the finest fillet knife I’ve ever owned. You gonna eat dem French fried taters, ah-huh?

Great fillet knife
A very clever design. The button lock is a nice addition. I especially like the very grippy rubber handle. SUPER sharp out of the box, this is a high quality knife.
