KOCUSTOMKOFILLET: Special Edition Hunting/Fishing/Skinning Fillet Knife
Ken Onion Knifeworks
The special edition hunting/fishing/skinning fillet knife is a mouthful when you say it but it is also a lot of utility knife in one package. The design is based off Ken's 6" curved fillet knife but with specific upgrades to make this a tool to be used in the outdoors, as well as in the kitchen. The 6" black DLC coated blade is made from BD1N nitrogen steel, hardened to 63HRC with a screen printed Ken Onion signature on the backside. The handle is made from beautifully polished black G10 which is designed with an indentation for your fingers to fit impeccably, creating the perfect safe grip. It combines a Ken Onion signature drop handle and control bump that lets you use the knife smoothly and efficiently no matter how tall you are or which hand you cut with, while reducing forearm stress and offering increased stability. This combination of materials, makes it one of the best performing field knives ever. Perfect for salt water or getting dropped in the mud, this outdoor knife will stand up to anything and last for a lifetime. Only 150 will ever be made and each knife includes a leather belt sheath.

Needs work on sheath
The knife is a fine fillet and boning knife for medium size game up to a smaller deer breed. More of a fish and bird cleaning knife. The handle can get slippery if you let it get bloody. The biggest problem is the SHEATH. it should have been a kydex insert inside the sheath so the blade won't stick through it. I like to wear my knife when Im fishing. There is no way you can take this knife out of the sheath , use it and stick it back in the sheath, while its hanging on your belt with out the blade coming all the way through the sheath. I have stuck it in my hand, my finger and my leg. It cost me 75$ to have a shop take the sheath apart mold a kydex knife mold and sew it back in to the sheath. It would be no big deal if the knife ( I have the big one) didn't cost over 200.00

Not bad, but not what I was expecting
My purpose for purchasing this knife was to have a good quality boning/skinning knife for processing deer, goats, kangaroo etc. I usually use a european swept pattern boning knife with enough belly to skin and narrowness and pointyness of blade to bone out effectively - I favour the Mora line as it has better steel and excellent handles. The knife, when it arrived, showed excellent fit and finish - no worries there. Materials are very good. The first problem, and one that may stop me from using it, is that the handle is too small. Certainly, Ken Onion's ergonomics are efficient and practical. But this handle barely fits in my (larger man-size) hands. I find it awkward and inconvenient to use for any length of time. Having said that, if you have small hands, it fits very well indeed. The second issue, one more of preference, is that the G10 handle is polished smooth. With everything covered in blood, fat and other slippery substances, this handle does not compare to a tacky rubber or textured hard plastic/phenolic handle. I filed some grooves for grip under the thumb position and on one side where the finger tips go, and it performs adequately. Third, the sheath is a poor match for the knife. I resorted to inserting another rivet in the end, as the very fine point of the blade would easily make its way through the very tip between the layers. Additionally, I ground the tip down so it didn't catch as easily when inserting the knife. I don't like super fine points, anyway. Fourth, it was not sharp when it arrived. Being so hard a steel, it takes a long time to get a good edge, and it seems to hold it too. In conclusion, this is a well made knife, and would serve very well for those with small hands. The sheath needs modification, and sharpening takes longer than most other knives I've used.
