Anyone seen or handled one of these knives?It looks a lot like the old Rabbit knife. Was wondering what they are like as a user.This would be more the kitchen box knife or for general camp chores. Not your "bushy crafter "type knife.

works real good fer cleanin' fish, anyways. i used one at a fishin' derby cleanin' trout; it wuz th' cat's meee-oooow! great knife fer gen'ral cookin' chores,as long as ye don't mind a residual fishy taste in yer bacon. might git uncomfortable usin' it fer scalpin' er guttin' work, though; i think them teeth on the back 'd git hung up in th' scalpee's h'ar, ya see. on t'other hand, ef ye hadta saw yer laig off....oh, well.
mind yer topknot!
Wat Windy said.
I think I have one in my cabinet. Handy 'usin' knife at low cost. Will work in camp and the woods. And, best part, you won't cry if you lose it.
Used one for many years, just ordered some blades from Dixie, and have son antler, and mahogony that i want to handle them with...paid $12.00, and worth all of that....Gary

"Fish knife"?? The knife in the review (where the guy insists on using it as a froe) is the standard Green River "Hunter" knife.
A Green River Fish knife probably hasn't been made in quite some time.
No, it's not mine. The pic was stolen from the internetz.
I know .but it is still advertised as "fish" knife on some web sites. The first thing the bushie crowd ask is "can you baton with it"?Seems its not good enough if you cant hack up oak stumps Me I use a knife to cut with and carry an axe for my chopping needs.This message has been edited.

Dexter-Russell markets that knife, as well as the finished (handle installed) version of the "Ripper" blade, as "fish knives." Both have the coarsely checkered handle scales, presumably so you can hold on to the knife with slimy hands.
Crazy Crow has these, but you can also order the directly from the factory outlet. I don't have the link handy, but it isn't hard to find.
