Hi. Can anyone recommend a good all round fishing knife? What are the best ones out there?

Thanks in advance.

Martini are a good knife worth a look.

Yes Marttiini are good but they are expensive.
The Surecatch Professional Series are good to hold an edge and are only around €15.00

I would prefer the one without the serrated piece in the blade.

I'm looking for one too. Anyone reccomend something with a nice secure sheath with a built in good quality sharpener? I had a diving knife years ago that had all that and a sheath that locked the knife in place untill you depressed a latch with your thumb, super secure but easy to remove. Can't remember the brand unfortunately and it was a bit too big for fishing.

martini great but not for cutting bait. for bait a short stout sharp knife is grand. always use a chopping board don't use blade side of knife to scrape off board. Southside have €2.95 knives on the counter - the job for cutting bait and line.

They are perfect for cutting bait once used on a chopping board and not rocks etc were the blade can get damaged, there is a green martini knife you can buy for €19 now in abc angling they are sharp an were about 50-60 a few year ago

Knives get abused cutting bait - a stout knife is a better option

would not go to expensive as you end up cutting bait on rocks and plastic boards so hard to keep an edge on the knife.wooden chopping board is the best.

It's easy really. I have a cheap bait knife that's used and abused horrendously, and a different expensive filleting knife I tend to be careful with.

The same as Tanglerat, I have a cheap bait knife but have a good victorinox filleting knife with the flexible blade, not too expensive, around 30 odd euro, the good thing with these knives is that they are easily sharpened with a decent steel.
