Gerber Controller 6" SaltRX Salt Water Fish Fillet & Boning Knife & Sheath with Built in Sharpener, Cyan [31-003557]

 Ean: 0013658156159   |    PartNumber: 31-003557   |   Asin: B07P5HKS8C

Gerber questioned hardcore anglers from across the nation, filtering that feedback into the design of one seriously inspired fillet knife: the Controller. Across different locations and species, one point rang true: an insightful fish fillet knife can make short work of messy business. No matter if you are bank fishing, kayak fishing, fly fishing, or beyond, the Controller Fillet Knife System is the ideal companion for the journey. What came up fast and often was the need for a dependable steel blade that could take a beating and hold an edge - enter 9Cr steel. Selected specifically for its toughness, corrosion resistance, and edge retention, the blade is also mirror polished for added protection and the ability to clean it easily. The Controller is constructed with a full tang steel blade for sturdy and safe use in slippery situations. Finding your grip on a wet fish can be tricky, the same shouldn't be said for your fillet knife. On a mountain riverbank, bobbing kayak, or everglade swamp, adventure anglers demand more of the grip on their fillet knife. Built right into the handle itself are the GuideFins which provide solid placement for your thumb and unrivaled control for smooth, safe cuts. The handle design aims for comfort and utility - HydroTread Grip is applied strategically in raised sections for traction and to quickly wick water away when cleaning up for the day. A crucial part of the fillet knife system, is the Controller's innovative sheath. Designed with generous venting, the molded plastic sheath doesn't get water logged and is easy to rinse out when the job's done. A built-in sharpener allows for blade touch-ups on-the-go, and it's easily mounted with multiple options for safe stowage on a backpack, belt, or pocket. Gerber tools are built to last a lifetime. To ensure optimal performance, rinse your tool with fresh water and dry thoroughly with a clean towel.

Features

  • SALT WATER READY: Optimized to withstand harsh saltwater environments w/ added corrosion-resistant protection. Engineered to meet the needs of saltwater fisherman, SALT Rx offers superior protection against corrosion, wear, and tough environments.
  • DURABLE CONSTRUCTION: Full tang 9Cr18MoV steel blade was specifically selected for its toughness, corrosion resistance, and edge retention -- mirror polished for added protection and the ability to easily clean.
  • EASY AND COMFORTABLE TO HANDLE: Guidefins are built directly into the handle providing solid placement for your thumb and unrivaled control for smooth, safe cuts. Additionally, HydroTread Grip is applied strategically in raised sections on the handle for traction to quickly wick water away when cleaning up for the day.
  • INNOVATIVE SHEATH: The sheath is designed with generous venting - the molded plastic sheath doesn't get water logged and is easy to rinse out once the job's done.
  • SHARPEN ON-THE-GO: A built-in sharpener allows for blade touch-ups wherever you are, and it's easily mounted with multiple options for safe stowage on a backpack, belt, or pocket.
