This one comes in two options. You can get a 4-inch or 6-inch blade. The MSRP is $35 and $38 respectively. The first Buck Knives Mr. Crappie Slab Shaver that I tested was the 4-inch and I thought that it was too stiff and too short to be a viable fillet knife. Then I discovered that the 6-inch model was for filleting and the 4-inch is for removing the rib cages.
Before I discovered what the 4-inch knife was for I tried to fillet some crappie with dismal results. But, by chance I threw it in the truck when Katy and I ran up the mountains the other day for a camping trip. We caught some little Brook trout and were going to clean them for dinner. I remembered that I had the 4-inch Mr. Crappie Shaver and whipped it out. It worked great for cleaning trout since you just pull out the guts, cut off the head and fry them. And also, since they’re thinner than crappie it works for filleting trout.
