I'm in! I'd love a filet knife! I could use it in the kitchen too as a boning knife!
I'm sure the reason there haven't been more runs has to do with lack of corrosion resistance as anything (including "stainless" steel) left unprotected on a boat for any length of time will surely rust to bits and the Busse warranty would cover that.
As great as INFI is, it will stain if not cared for but maybe there can be a special run with forced patina? That might be indestructible!
My dad was a commercial fisherman my whole life and owned a seafood market for a few years. All the fish cutters in the back used carbon steel (1095 I believe) but the guys cutting the stuff for the customers got stainless because customers would complain about the guys using "old rusty" knives.
Alas, maybe you are right and I see your point, Busse can make every possible type of knife more awesome then the last guy but maybe just maybe this...this has stumped them , This must be the reason cause yeah a bomb proof fillet knife is just what I need.
Yes, I saw that. Awesome. It was the medium size one. I missed that unfortunately but better yet I would love something in a 8"- 9" blade. Something that has some flex but also some backbone to rip through those rib bones. And something my kids, kids can one day use....vs the typical made in China or disposable ones found now.
