Made by Marttiini, the makers of premium Rapala fillet knives for over 50 years.
This knife taught the world how to fillet and has more guts than any other. With over 100 million units sold to date and a long history of popularity, more fishing camps, charter boats, and anglers use this fillet knife than any other in the world.
The legendary birch handle is firmly attached to a progressive tapered, flexible, full-tang European stainless steel blade that can take and maintain an ultra-sharp edge. All of this is shielded by a beautiful Laplander sheath made of finely tooled leather with a "safety-first" free-swing belt loop that always keeps the sheath and blade away from the body.
There is a blade size suitable for every fish cleaning task among the four available.
Includes simple, one-stage sharpener that maintains razor-sharpness.
Reminder: By purchasing or ordering any knife you represent that you are 18 years of age or older and agree that you will take full responsibility for compliance with all applicable federal, state, and local laws, regulations, and other restrictions.

It all began with a hungry Finnish guy and a carving knife. It was the 1930s when a simple fisherman made an observation of simple genius: Big fish eat little fish, especially little fish that are wounded. So begins the greatest fishing story ever told. As Lauri Rapala fished the waters of Finland’s Lake Paijanne, he quietly rowed and watched. And what he saw was how hungry predator fish would dart into a school of minnows and attack the one that swam with a slightly off-center wobble. Over and over again.
Lauri realized that if he could craft a lure that mimicked the movements of a wounded minnow, he could catch more fish, earn more money, and not spend time constantly baiting lines. So Lauri set to work. He whittled. Carved. And shaved. Eventually, a lure began to take shape. Using a shoemaker’s knife and some sandpaper, he created his first successful lure from cork in 1936. Tinfoil from chocolate bars formed the lure’s outer surface. Melted photographic negatives the protective coating. But most importantly, it perfectly imitated the action of a wounded minnow. Legend has it that Lauri sometimes caught 600 pounds of fish a day with that new lure. And as word of his abundant catches spread, the lure’s reputation grew. The rest, as they say, is history. That first lure was the forefather to the lure that has helped more fishermen experience the thrill of more big fish than any other: the legendary Original Floating™ Rapala.
The wiggle fish can’t resist. As fishermen around the world began to catch more and bigger fish with Rapala’s lure, it became clear that what triggered them was the lure’s tantalizing wiggle and wobble. Because even though fish throughout the world were different, predators and baitfish always acted true to form. Big fish hammer wounded little fish. That’s why Lauri tested each lure to make sure it swam true to the unique "wounded-minnow action." It wasn’t the fastest way to make a fishing lure. But it was the only way to make a Rapala. (To this day, Rapala lures are hand-tuned and tank-tested to swim perfectly right out of the box.) It’s an action as distinct to a Rapala as a fingerprint is to a person. An action no other company has been able to duplicate.
Likewise, the moment Rapala introduced Fish ’n Fillet® knives they enhanced the fishing experience for millions. Until then, fishermen had a long and grizzly history of clumsily whittling down a prized catch to something resembling a fillet of songbird. The tapered design and unique flexibility of the Fish ’n Fillet made filleting easier, which is why to this day they’re still the number one fillet knife in the world. And so a foundation was laid. The successes of the Original Floater™, Shad Rap®, and Fish ’n Fillet were followed by other Rapala products that found their way into tackle boxes and history books. Lures like the Magnum®, the Rattlin’ Rapala®, the Fat Rap®, the CountDown®, the Husky Jerk™, and the Tail Dancer™.
