    I love these knives and this thread. Growing up I had a yellow Imperial or Case toothpick with main clip blade and second scaler/hook remover/bottle opener. No hook sharpener on the scales. Loved that thing. My dad kept a wood handled/wood sheathed fixed blade in his tackle box. The wood was all of one piece, rectangular, with a ruler on each side. The black ruler had true inches and read, "For Honest Fishermen" while the red ruler had scant inches that read, "For Dishonest Fishermen." Also read, "IT FLOATS!" The blade was a typical combination knife/scaler/bottle opener. Nice memories.

    I don't have a folding fishing knife but I have this fillet knife. Worth posting I think.

    Schrade + USA 167UH Staglon Uncle Henry Steelhead Fillet Knife & Sheath with Imitation Stag (Staglon) Handles and Nickel Silver Bolsters - 12 inches overall - 6 3/4 inch blade

    If only that Uncle Henry had real stag! It's a beautiful knife.
    My fish knife is nowhere near as lovely, but it's been in my tackle box for decades and does its thing without much fanfare

    An Opinel No15 "L Effile" I carved with a 6" blade.



    Not very practical!

    I hate to expose my ignorance, but what is the bottle opener looking thing near the bolster on a lot of the folders?

    I was under the assumption it is exactly that...if not then I'll have learned something new today :)

    It’s a bottle opener. Most of these folders include a fillet blade, descaler, bottle opener, and hook de-gouger. Some will also have a ruler and hook sharpener. These are great multi-tools!

    Almost every knife I own is a part of my collecting hobby. My only fishing knife is no exception, it being a piece in my collection, and I don't even go fishing.

    Anyhow, it's a 'SHUR-LOCK' fishing knife circa 1950. I guess they are actually pretty rare, were made of stainless steel, and were USA produced. The lock on it makes it an even more rare bird, and hence why I wanted to add it to my collection. I was lucky to pick it up on the cheap, and it's in extremely minty condition, even having it's original factory cutting edge.

    A new GEC 65 fish knife, and a Simms fishing vest so old it was actually made in the USA!

Main blade has a liner lock, secondary has disgourger, cap lifter, measurement ruler, and the descaler is almost a sawtooth that cuts bone and wood easily. It had a bent hook bail but I removed it as it would snag clothing and fishing line easily, now the bail pin hole is a hook straightener. :D:rolleyes:

    I think abalone is the ultimate cover for a fish knife.......imagine the GEC 65 with abalone covers!

    That is super cool and unique...I definitely have not seen that before.

    Love that knife...I seemed to miss out on that one but hoping to get one from the Rendezvous or otherwise. It would be pretty neat if GEC offered that in some other materials too...like tortoise shell :D Seriously though, keep those coming GEC.

    What a cool fish knife! I like that a lot :thumbsup:

    Terrible pic, but you get the idea. A Puma fishing knife / weighing scale.
    A gift from my parents in I think the late 60's.
