Default Electric fillet knife, anyone bought one recently?

I'm looking into buying a new 110V electric fillet knife. On a scale of 1-10, rate some brands/models priced under $50.

Gotta get ready to clean all those snapper caught in a six week season! Guess I'll be cleaning bee liners, white snapper, etc!

I'll have to look in my cleaning bag. I've burnt so many of them over the years. I finally found one that has lasted through redfish and triggers for the last six years. I'll let you know when I find it.

Bass Pro has a one day special tomorrow(Saturday) on a Berkley electric filet knife for $19.97. I don't own one so I can't say whether it's a good knife or not.

It's been awhile, but I had an old Mr twister. Worked really well cutting bone and filleting. I didn't even need to scale the fish, didn't need to, as it would fillet the meat off the skin. Made quick work on Bass and Kings.

I can't find it, but it's a cheap yellow one and no it's not the Mr. Twister.

I've owned several over the past 20yrs. I have not needed one in the past three years. Gave my last one to a friend. American Fisherman?? What ever it was, it was OK.

I've owned some that I did not keep more than a couple of outings. No need in being aggravated once you're back on dry land, I tossed them in the trash. The pirana is one that I'm sure I have not used. Have you used it to clean 50 lbs of fillets?

Kinda off topic,but,I have an OLD J.Martiini,made in Finland fillet knife that is by far the best knife I own for cleaning fish.It has about 10 inches of blade and stays razor sharp.I think it works better than an electric, once I mastered the use of it.JMO
