KS1256: Folding Fillet Knife (1256)
Kershaw Knives

Once you've caught the perfect fish, you're going to need the perfect fillet knife to make it grill-ready. Fortunately, Kershaw has exactly the right fillet knife.

For those who like stow gear compactly, there's the Kershaw Folding Fillet. The fillet's 6-in. blade folds into a 7-in. handle and stores neatly in your tacklebox. 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 textured plastic for durability and ribbed for filleting comfort. Finger contours further enhance the solid grip and make the job of filleting even a large catch less tiring. 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 also has a handy foldout cleaning spoon and is drilled to accept a lanyard. It may look simple, but anglers swear by this sweet little fillet knife—making it one of our top-selling knives.
  • Manual - There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
  • Back Lock - A strip of steel on the back of the knife moves into place behind the blade to lock the knife safely and securely open during use.

Your special features need review....
Our good friend Warren brought this knife along to a fabulous Easter weekend here at "CU@Wallaroo" in SA, Australia. After doing an excellent job filleting the KG whiting we caught, 20 reasonably intelligent people then spent over an hour attempting to work out what the flip up device located on the end of your knife was actually for... we FINALLY found it (it had another name.. not Kershaw, but it is one of these knives- just rebranded) A "blood spoon"???? Of all the handy additional tools for a folding fillet knife? Anyway - it was a fun challenge! all the gang at Derek & NIcoles fantastic weekend spot
